Protect Uptime with Regular HVAC Checkups
When you drive a heavy-duty Volvo truck, you expect high-quality features that emphasize comfort and convenience, and maximize your time behind the wheel. The HVAC system in your Volvo truck helps maintain the correct temperature in the cab - keeping you comfortable - and handles tasks such as defrosting the windshield on a cold morning, getting you on the road faster.
Your Volvo truck was engineered with high-performance HVAC components that were designed to provide you with maximum uptime. With proper preventive maintenance, such as monitoring your receiver drier's moisture indicator and cleaning your condenser every 12 months, you can drive with confidence that your HVAC components will keep your truck running when it matters most.
But add in factors like contaminated refrigerant oil and lack of preventive maintenance, and your HVAC system could fail. It's important to get your HVAC system checked in three-, six- and 12-month intervals by Volvo-certified technicians who can spot potential problems before they start. Your Volvo dealership's factory-trained techs use supplies and equipment that meet Volvo's high-performance standards and help avoid hidden sources of HVAC contamination, such as:
- Old supplies, such as PAG oils or seals, that may have been exposed to air or moisture
- Neglected recovery equipment that is harboring contaminants
- Vacuum pumps with air and moisture in the system
- Recovered refrigerant
If you need to replace your HVAC components, you'll want parts that are engineered for dependability and peak performance, just like your Volvo truck. For example, FLX7 compressors from Sanden® offer a pressure relief valve to guard against abnormal pressure conditions, a field coil diode to prevent electrical damage to the clutch and a heavy-duty clutch bearing to handle higher pressures and loads.
To protect your valuable uptime, make an appointment for a complete HVAC system check with the service experts at your nearest Volvo Trucks dealership. Ask your dealership's Volvo parts experts about ordering high quality HVAC system components in bulk to stay repair ready.
