Beat the Heat from Premier 1 Automotive

p1a-aprilAs the summer fast approaches us here in Apex, NC, we continually look for ways to stay cool when driving in our vehicles. Some of us choose the convenience of air conditioning, while others (early in the warm months) choose tradition and roll down the windows for a fresh breeze. Of these two methods, which one will save you gas? In fact, when is the proper time to turn on the air conditioning or roll down the windows?

Here at Premier One Automotive we advise our customers to turn on the air conditioning when reaching highway speed. Rolling down the windows at high speed often causes wind drag, thus creating a greater resistance. This resistance can alter your vehicles miles per gallon. Driving around town at slow speeds is the perfect time to turn off the air conditioning and feel that North Carolina breeze.

Are rolling the windows down your only option? Are you in need for A/C service repair? If so, come into Premier One Automotive and let our ASE certified mechanics take a free look at your air system.

A/C Failure Symptoms:

  • Your air conditioner is no longer blowing cold air
  • You are here odd noises when you start the A/C or heat
  • You are experiencing inconsistent temperature
  • You are smelling weird odors from your car vents

Tending to air conditioning problems in a timely matter is important to the health of your vehicle and the weight of your wallet. Ignoring symptoms can turn small repair into large one.

Don’t wait and let yourself or the passengers of your vehicle suffer from the summer heat. Let our certified technicians diagnose the problem so you can drive to your destination in comfort.

If you own an Audi, BMW, Volvo, Acura, Lexus, Infiniti, Porsche, or Jaguar; we are the only automotive service center you will ever need.  Of course, we work on any domestic and import and are certified to do every major and minor repair.
