Thermostats in automobiles have changed drastically over the years. We had a manual lever in our cars that controlled the thermostat. Simply moving it to the left - into the blue zone - gave you and your passengers cool air, while moving it to the right - into the red zone - gave you and your passengers hot air. (Our older car-owners remember this with an air of nostalgia!) These days, however, it’s a whole other ballgame! Automotive manufacturers are delivering complex, computerized climate control systems with their cars.
Many include a digital thermostat that can be set to maintain a specific temperatures for optimal comfort, and minimal hassle. Others include the ability to gauge and account for temperature and humidity, both inside and outside the vehicle, and provide individual temperature-control for passengers in different seats. Some even have heating, cooling and fans built-into those seats! At Northwest Best Auto Repair, our expert technicians are always keeping up-to-speed with the exciting technological advances in the automotive industry.
Due to the fact that your car’s climate control system is comprised of many smaller systems that work together, annual maintenance can be the key to securing the continued comfort of your passengers...and their driver! However intelligent the designs of many of these automotive climate control systems ut there, nothing works perfectly all of the time. When service or a repair becomes necessary, you can trust our team to use the latest in diagnostic equipment and automobile know-how to accurately identify the problem, and optimize your climate control system’s performance.
In addition to regaining the comfortable cabin environment you enjoyed prior to experiencing an issue with your system, we can also help you to ensure your safety as a driver. In cases of severe weather conditions, for example, maintaining the proper internal climate can actually factor into automotive safety. (A non-working defroster comes to mind!) This is why it is important for you to seek climate control repairs at the first sign of trouble. If you pay attention to the warning signs of an impending climate control system problem, you may be able to prevent a broken system and subsequent safety concerns. In addition, your owner’s manual likely details recommended, regular service-intervals for the system.
