Now that the weather is warming up, you’ll probably be using your car’s air conditioning system a lot more. Here are some ways to keep your Nissan cold this summer.
Roll the windows down
The best way to cool the interior of your car is to let the hot air out first. Before you start driving, roll the windows down a bit. Drive for a couple of minutes with them down and then turn the air conditioning on to get the cool flow started. Don’t forget to roll up the windows, though!
Check the filter
Much like your car’s oil, air goes through a filter to work properly. This filter is typically located behind the glove box and also blocks odors from entering the cabin. Be sure to have the air filter checked when you visit us at Avenue Nissan to ensure you’re getting clean, cool air.
Don’t forget the fresh air vent
Your car’s air conditioning system has various features — one of which is the “fresh air vent” that allows the air from outside the vehicle to enter the cabin. Using this every so often is great for freshening up the interior. But be sure to turn on the recirculation button when you’re behind a diesel truck to avoid inhaling those fumes.
If you notice any foul odors or encounter any issues with your car’s air conditioning unit, feel free to contact us or visit our service team at Avenue Nissan in Toronto, Ontario.
