While your calendar might say it’s time for spring to get started, Mother Nature seems to have something else in mind. With the cold weather persisting as March presses on, many drivers are seeing the value in taking the time to make sure their car’s heat is in proper working order.
At our Hyundai dealership in Maryland, our experts also see the value in checking out your climate control at this time of year; your car’s heat operates hand-in-hand with its air conditioning, so getting things in order now can make sure you’re set for a cool and comfortable ride when spring and summer finally decide to show their faces!
Your car’s temperature control works thanks to its heater core, which acts as a small radiator and controls the temperature of air flowing into your car’s cabin. This translates to warm air when it’s cold and cool air when it’s hot so that you can stay comfortable, but a few things can get in the way of this ideal scenario.
If your car’s thermostat is worn out, it can lead to either too much or too little warm or cool air. Depending on your vehicle’s setup, this can be a relatively easy fix. Still, it’s best to have a professional like one of our ASE certified technicians handle things.
A clog in your heater core can also cause things to back up. Flushing and replacing your coolant is an easy fix, but often a messy one. At our state-of-the-art facility, we have the equipment to make this process a neat and simple one, and also have access to all of the proper recycling channels to make sure your used coolant is disposed of properly.
For a fast and accurate diagnosis of what’s holding your climate control back and to have it fixed right the first time, be sure to contact our Maryland Hyundai service center online or to call us directly at (301) 423-1100 today. Don’t forget that at Pohanka Hyundai, we’re open seven days a week; no need for an appointment, just bring it in!
