As Temps Rise, Larry Williams Had A/C Tips to Keep You Cool

Larry Williams has done work on cars for over thirty years at Williams Brake, Tune and Tire and one of the most common items he works on is a car’s air conditioner. Larry compares an air conditioner for vehicle to a refrigerator in your kitchen. The refrigerator cools the small, insulated space inside the refrigerator, but and an air conditioner cools the whole interior of a car.

Three units, the condenser, the compressor and the evaporator work together to create the cool air, with the help of a little freon–a gas. Like any air tank, over time that tank needs to be refilled. Larry advises it probably should be done after 5-6 years if the car was bought new. And the cost is reasonable since it’s not yearly. The going rate is about $110 for one pound of freon and labor.

With temps this week expected to reach 100 degrees, you’re going to be turning on the a/c more than likely. And if it’s not working properly check with Larry at Williams Brake, Tune and Tire, 311 19th St in Lubbock or call them at 806-747-8863, open Mon-Fri 7:30-5:30. He’ll cool you down!
