Spring is upon us, and summer is right around the corner. Make sure your A/C is running in perfect condition to keep you cool on hot days. How often should I have my car's air conditioning system serviced? Air conditioning systems may lose 0.3-0.6 ounces of refrigerant yearly, which is why it's a good idea to have your air conditioning system checked yearly. That being said, if at any time you start to notice your interior cooling ability has declined, you should have your air conditioning system tested. A properly working A/C keeps you and everyone else in the vehicle comfortable and cool all the way to your destination.
