If there’s one thing you can be sure of as a resident of Phoenix, it’s that the summers are as brutal as the rest of the year is beautiful.

Whether you’re on your way to work, you’re out running errands or taking the kids from one event to another, the worst feeling in the world is when you go to turn the A/C on in your car only to get a blast of hot air that doesn’t cool down.

What to do if your vehicle’s air conditioner breaks down in Phoenix?

There are a couple options on the table before you might need to take your vehicle in to a mechanic when its A/C isn’t working properly.

  • Reduce the load on the alternator by turning off the radio, all lights and accessories
  • Ensure that the climate control system as a whole is functioning normally

After you’ve made these checks and your vehicle’s air conditioner still isn’t working, you can try to recharge it with a kit from an auto parts store, or you can bring it in to The Auto Shop at your convenience.
