“Why Isn’t My Air Conditioner Blowing Cold Air?”

“Why Isn’t My Air Conditioner Blowing Cold Air?”

With the temperatures heating up we are starting to hear this question a lot. There are several reasons why your a/c may not be blowing the cold air that you were looking for. Your air conditiong system uses a gas called refrigerant and when the level of refrigerant is low, the air you are feeling may not be as cool as you would like. In fact, it could even be pretty warm! This could be due to small leaks in the system and is the most common reason for your problem. Another reason could be electrical in nature. Between the switch on the dash and out to the compressor, there are relays and sensors that can keep your compressor from working properly. Your first step is to have our certified technician connect gauges to determine the refrigerant level in the air conditioning system. If it is determined that there is a lack of refrigerant, some will be added to search for a leak. An electronic leak detector woul ... read more

Do I Need New Tires?

Do I Need New Tires?

There are several ways to determine if you need new tires. One way is to insert a quarter upside down into the tire's tread. If you can see the top of Ole George's head then your tread is measuring 4/32 and the tire needs to be replaced. Another sign that you need new tires is the presence of grooves or cracks in the sidewall. Other indicators are blisters and bulges because they can quickly become the source of a dangerous blowout. In addition, feeling too much vibration when driving can be a sign of several issues. Your tires may need balancing or you may need an alignment. The vibration can actually be a sign of a problem with your tire. If you have any questions concerning your tires, or any other vehicle repair or maintenance issue, give us a call and our certified mechanics will be happy to answer your questions and advise you. #newtires #tiresnearme #tiresinbaltimore

“Presidential”Tire Safety Tip

“Presidential”Tire Safety Tip

It seems fitting to impart a little “Presidential” wisdom today, being President's Day, on tire safety. Have you heard of the old penny or Lincoln method of determining if you had enough tread left on your tire? You would place a penny, with Lincoln's head facing down in your tires tread. If you could see the top of his head then you knew that you needed new tires. This method is based on the thinking that tires should be replaced when the tire tread remaining measured 2/32 nd of an inch. However when it reaches the 2/32 nd measurement, it's actually too late. A better idea is to use a quarter, inserting upside down, into the tread. If you can see the top of George Washington's head, your tread is measuring 4/32 and your tires will need to be replaced
