Road Trips and Extreme Heat - Plan Ahead!

When it comes to planning a road trip, many people know to have the oil checked on their car.  Some may go as far as checking the brakes, tires, and fluids to ensure their vehicle can reach the intended destination.  But how many drivers remember to have an auto air conditioning service if nothing seems to be wrong? 

Consider this example:  A family of four heads out on the perfect road trip to visit family in South Florida on a sunny summer morning.  Before they left, Dad had the oil changed, the brakes replaced and the gas tank filled.  But halfway there the A/C stops working.  It's 90 degrees in the shade and everyone feels the effects of the sweltering heat.  Worried about the kids in the back seat as the temperature steadily climbs past 95 degrees with a 100% humidity, Dad realized he should have scheduled an air conditioning service for their car along with all the other pre-trip auto services.  Now they have to find an auto repair shop in an unfamiliar area for a costly air conditioning repair.

Why is Car Air Conditioning Maintenance important for your vehicle?

As you can see, it’s very important to have the A/C checked prior to leaving on road trips to prevent dangerous heat fatigue ailments such as heat stress, heat exhaustion and worse, heat stroke.  A reputable auto repair shop can generally provide relatively affordable air conditioning service and make any necessary air conditioning repairs, usually within a short amount of time.   

So before your next summer road trip, be sure to schedule an air conditioning service.  It will minimize the negative impact on your vacation and save you the hassles of trying to find a shop for air conditioning repair while on vacation.  The goal is to have the best vacation ever--and the safest one too.
