Your truck is more than just a vehicle; it’s your home away from home. And your A/C plays a key role in keeping you comfortable while you’re out on the road.
One of the most critical parts of your truck’s A/C system is the condenser. Located between the grille and the radiator, the condenser receives hot refrigerant gas from the compressor and moves it through a series of fins and tubes. With each pass, the gas cools, forming a high-pressure liquid that can be used to chill the cab.
But dirt and debris – such as small rocks, feathers, litter and leaves – can stop this process in its tracks, especially if you’re a long-haul driver whose truck is moving for long periods of time. That’s because, as you drive, these materials accumulate on the condenser where they act like a blanket, holding in heat and limiting your condenser’s ability to cool.
Follow these tips to help you keep your entire A/C system running at peak performance:
