Shuttle Bus AC Service Special
As summer get closer and the temperature keep climbing, its time to make sure your Shuttle Bus Air Conditioning is operating at full capacity. Failure-free operation of air conditioning and climate-control systems is imperative to the bottom line of transit agencies. Several components, such as the compressor, electromagnetic clutch, expansion valve and a host of other technical gadgets, keep an air-conditioning system up and running. However, air conditioning units are known to need a disproportionate amount of attention compared to other bus components. The issue of whether a certain component or system will fail is not about if, but, rather, when.
The Bus AC Service Special at Atlantic Bus checks all critical components of the AC system and for $275 it includes:
- Inspection of System Components
- Check Refrigerant Levels
- Inspect Evaporator Coils
- Treat Drain Line
- Check and Clean Filter
- Includes up to 1 lb. of Freon
It is estimated that a private car air conditioner can lose up to 5% efficiency for every 12 months that it is used. On a bus, where the system is much bigger with more ducting and venting, this loss of efficiency could be even higher. The less efficient the system is, the harder it will have to work to keep things cool, meaning that failures can quickly lead to necessary shuttle bus repairs. Regular maintenance will allow for faults to be identified early, and the system can be kept clean and fully gassed so that there is less chance of unexpected failures.
One way that your buses air conditioner can become inefficient, is when vents and filters are clogged with dust and other particulates. This can cause fans to work overtime, and it also means that the temperature won’t be maintained as expected, which will force the compressor to work harder. Even small blockages in ducts and vents can cause damage over time, so it is essential that you schedule a full service, at least once a year (depending on the mileage that your bus is doing). Because you’ll be dealing with professionals at Atlantic Bus Sales, you can be sure that servicing will be fast and efficient, keeping labor costs down and providing you with the peace of mind knowing that you’re getting the best possible inspections and maintenance.
