A lot of people seem to disregard the fact that staying comfortable in your heavy-duty truck is essential to productivity. When the HVAC system in your truck is not working, you will become dependent on the use of your windows being down or up depending on the climate you are in. HVAC issues should be addressed as soon as possible to ensure that the operator can stay comfortable in the cab regardless of the climate they are working in.

Well for one, you will feel hot in the summer and cold in the winter. When your truck's air conditioner and heater is not working properly, your comfort inside the cab of your truck will be compromised. This can be highly inconvenient if you are driving or working in hotter climates and colder climates. There are many ways that you can identify issues with your air conditioning and heater in your heavy duty truck. Some of these indicators include:
You need more coolant:
It’s normal for cold air to blow out of your vents for the first few minutes after you turn on the heater. But it should warm up fast. If it doesn’t, your coolant level might be low.
You have a leak:
Coolant travels through several parts of your engine. A leak from any of those places can prevent your heating and cooling system from working properly.
Coolant hoses have worn down:
As your truck ages, the coolant hoses get worn down. This can lead to clogs or loose clamps. If you’re struggling to find a coolant leak, these hoses should be one of the places you check.
If you are trying to turn on your air conditioning or heater in your heavy-duty truck and the controls will not engage, then you could have a fuse or electrical issues occurring.
For all your air conditioning and heater repair needs, we encourage you to get in touch with our team at Gallaher Fleet Solutions in Mooresville, North Carolina.
