HEATING SYSTEM SERVICE
At Essential Auto Service we have the proper equipment to handle your vehicles heating system needs. Every
manufacture has a different type and colour of engine anti-freeze. It is very important that the proper type be used for
your application. We use only the specified engine coolant, NO universal anti-freeze, NO recycled anti-freeze we only
use new fluid specified type and colour your vehicle came with. A properly maintained cooling system is important for
being able to supply enough interior heat rapidly during the cold winter months and also be able to defrost your
windows for proper visibility. We use a pressurized flushing machine which exchanges all the dirty anti-freeze from
your engine, radiator, heater core and all the hoses giving you a complete fluid exchange.

AIR CONDITIONING SERVICE
The air conditioning or cooling system of your vehicle is very important year round. Did you know every time you turn
your windshield defrost on the cars computer automatically turns on the air condition system even in the middle of winter.
This is done to clean and dehumidify the air inside your vehicle so the windows can be defrosted. The cold air is then
redirected through the heater to warm it back up before blowing out the ventilation system. The freon inside the
A/C system lasts the life of the vehicle unless it leaks out. An A/C system diagnosis consists of hooking the A/C machine
to your vehicle and testing the operating pressures of the compressor and the temperature of the air coming out the dash
vents. If your A/C system is working properly it should be able to blow below 50F degrees out the center vents with a
medium fan speed. If the A/C system is not cooling as well as it use to then it is most likely due to low refrigerant but
can also be caused by inoperative cooling fans, worn out compressor, system blockage or a heater door that is sticking
slightly open. At Essential Auto Service we have the proper equiptment and expertise to diagnose the problem and fix it
right. We only use pure R-134a refrigerant, no propane, butane or anyother blends that can be dangerous in your A/C
system. We also do NOT use any stop leaks for the air conditioning that can cause further complications such as
permanently plugging the system. We fix it right so it works right!
