You're experiencing shaking while driving at high speeds or turning corners. You're noticing scuffs or marks on the tires themselves.   You should always have a tire rotation on the forefront of your mind--becaus ... read more

Staying Warm in Winter

Staying Warm in Winter

Photo by @shawnanggg on Unsplash   While it doesn't seem like the greatest idea to turn on your A/C in freezing temperatures, it can benefit your A/C system's life and function. One of the leading issues is the build-up of mold and bacteria due to condensation. Another issue is the breakdown of your A/C system caused by an extended period of time without use. To avoid these issues and further damage that can lead to costly repairs, we recommend running your A/C on full-cold for about 10-15 minutes every couple of weeks. Running your A/C this way will ensure the liquids flow properly and that the moving parts are thoroughly lubricated.    Using your A/C system simultaneously as your heating system will provide c ... read more
