A Cold Day In Rowlett March 25, 2015
Most Rowlett motorists worry about a breakdown or a tire blowout on a busy TX highway but don’t worry too much about failure of their air conditioning system. A breakdown at the side of the road can be a miserable and dangerous affair during Rowlett rush hour, but so can a long ride in a hot truck.
A lot of Rowlett drivers judge their vehicles’ air conditioning systems as “non-essential” and so may neglect them in favor of repairs and maintenance that keeps the truck running. But preventive maintenance of an air conditioning system is simple and inexpensive, while auto a/c repair can be very costly in Rowlett.

All TX pilots have checklists for every aspect of flying. They always use their checklists even if they only have two steps on them. They do this simply because a checklist is a great way to not forget vital steps. It is also how they can assure a predictable outcome.

Lewis Complete Auto Repair service specialists are trained step by step. And they perform the procedures step by step, the same way each time. By training to procedural standards, TX centers can assure a quality outcome. The job is done right every time and Rowlett motorists leave happy with how their truck performs.
Most TX drivers know that their vehicles need regular preventive maintenance like changing the oil and filters, rotating the tires and refilling the washer fluid. But did you know that your air conditioning system needs routine maintenance as well? Taking care of your air conditioning system can extend its life and prevent costly repair bills.
Why is it important for Rowlett auto owners to get routine maintenance on their air conditioning system? First, the refrigerant contains an added lubricant. As the refrigerant circulates through the air conditioning system, its parts are lubricated. This constant lubrication keeps the parts functioning well. But over time, this lubricant is used up, and without it, the parts will eventually seize up and fail.
