Car A/C maintenance tips

26th December 2021
"You use your car’s A/C almost every day, and it practically becomes a necessity once summer hits."

You use your car’s A/C almost every day, and it practically becomes a necessity once summer hits. To remind you about how important your car's air conditioning system is for keeping you comfortable on the road.

Here are 7 tips for keeping your air conditioning running at maximum performance:

Go Low

Setting to the lowest temp and adjusting the fan makes the car air conditioning more efficient, will dry out the airless, and can actually save some fuel.

In a typical AC system, the air is cooled to 38 degrees.

If you set the temp higher, you're actually forcing the system to reheat the cooled air, which takes more effort and more fuel.

Don't Recirculate

If you have passengers in the back seat, consider turning off the recirculation mode.

This takes air from the front of the cabin and pulls it back through the system, so even though everyone upfront stays cool, the air in the back can get stale and hot.

Avoid starting the A/C directly

Before switching the car a/c on, you must ventilate the car. It will expel the stale hot air inside and fill the car with fresh air.

Lower the windows and switch on the blowers in the maximum setting.

Once the inside temperature equals ambient temperature, you can close the windows, switch off the blower and turn the a/c on.

This helps in cooling the car faster, besides reducing the load on the components.

Clean the filter

Whenever you get the chance, check your cabin air filter to make sure it’s clean. A dirty filter prevents optimal airflow.

In newer cars, these filters are relatively easy to check; if you see a lot of dirt accumulated on them, it's time to change it.

You can save money if you can replace the filter yourself. In many modern cars, the filter is accessible behind the glove compartment.

Park under the Shade

When you leave your car under the sun for too long, its interior can get considerably hot.

As a result, the car’s A/C will have to work twice as hard just to get the temperature down.

That’s why it’s smart to park under a shade or install sun shades to avoid causing this problem.

5th May 2019
"Simple and easy steps to let your ride feel young forever and make your bike new forever."

Buying a bike may be a thing but taking care of it is what matters the most. Simply purchasing a hot ride means nothing at all if you have no idea how to take care of it. Taking care on a daily basis requires no hardcore physical activity but simple tips and tricks.

Here are some bike care and maintenance tips:

Regular Bike Servicing

Regular Bike servicing might be a regular thing to see as a first point in the article about taking care of your bike. But, it is one of the most important aspects to be taken care of in order to maintain the bike’s condition and keeping it smooth for a very long time. Servicing can be done on a timely basis or as per the kilometers the bike has traveled. Make sure that you either service your bike in the showroom itself or a genuine bike shop.

Do not fill the petrol tank 

Petrol tanks should not be filled to their maximum limits as it only makes your bike and wallet suffer because of the overflow. Also, the bike when kept under the sun, vaporizes all the petrol and wastes it away. Filling it the halfway or a little more than that would be the best thing to do.

Bike chain Maintenance -Lubricating the chains

The chains are the link between your acceleration and the turning of the wheels. The dust, dirt, and mud getting all over the chain as it is located at the bottom of the bike. These external agents cause the dryness in the chain sprocket which ultimately creates friction, which is basically bad for the pickup and riding in general.

Tightening nuts and bolts of Bike

Regular monitoring of the nuts and bolts is extremely necessary to maintain the bike in a sustainable manner. Imagine you take your ride for a spin and a bolt gets loosened up. The chances are, either you will hear weird creaking noises throughout your ride or you will end up with a dislocated part of your bike which may cause the dislocation of your body parts too.

Wash your bike weekly

Finally, the bike wash is necessary to keep your bike look shining and flawless. Washing the bike daily may be a difficult task considering the daily business and the shortage of water in the country. Also, everyday washing may wash out all the necessary lube from your bike. Therefore, make an appointment for cleanliness with your ride once a week.
