Air Conditioning & Heating

Air conditioning and heating aren’t luxury systems. It’s actually important to keep your A/C, if you have it, and your heater in good working order. After all, if you’re comfortable, temperature-wise, you’ll be better able to navigate safely & drive defensively, instead of feeling way too hot in July, or far too cold in January.

These are the terms and parts relating to your vehicle’s air conditioning & heating system:

Air conditioning compressors

Air conditioning evacuation & recharging

Air conditioning hoses

Air conditioning orifice tubes

Air conditioning receiver dryers

Air conditioning service & repair

Belts

Blower motors & resistors

Cabin filter

Expansion valves

Heater blend doors

Heater control valves

Heater cores

Thermostats

Vent actuators

Get your air conditioning and heating systems looked at before you take a long road trip or when you are using your heater, but it just doesn’t seem as warm as it used to. Likewise, when you’ve turned on your air conditioner, but it’s not feeling as cool as it once did.

Another part of keeping yourself and your passengers comfortable and your vehicle in good working order is in maintaining and regularly changing the filter related to your heater and air conditioning system. Which one is that? The cabin filter.

Why? Maintaining good indoor air quality is one good reason, especially if you spend hours commuting to work or transporting kids between trainings, rehearsals, meets, and games both during the week and on weekends. Road trips and vacations are another time to think about indoor air quality as well as overall vehicle health. Also, if you or a member of your family has asthma or a respiratory concern, keeping your filters monitored and clean will help them breathe easier and keep your maintenance costs to a minimum.

When you’re comfortable, you’re a safer driver, so keep these systems in good working order!

Our family has been a client of Tom's since 2005 and we have never been disappointed. My husband does most of the work on our cars and we only bring them to the shop when he is stuck with something he can't do. At Tom's, not only do they always offer a menu of solutions to fit different budgets, but they have also provided advice regarding what my husband could do on his own, and we appreciate that very much.

Tom's automotive has very experienced, professional and friendly staff. As a female, I don't feel I can trust certain mechanics. The owner is female and I completely trust her advise. They gave me a list of what maintenance items needed to be completed but did not pressure to complete them at that time.

Tom's Automotive is a grade A place to get car maintenance. They are very professional in communicating if any additional maintenance needs to be done. I feel confident that their advice is based on their true observation of what needs to be performed. I highly recommend this business for car maintenance.
