Proper maintenance of a truck’s air conditioning system can help prevent costly repairs and keep drivers comfortable and cool during the hot temperatures of summer.

Air-conditioning service includes a complete air-conditioning system evacuation and recharge, receiver dryer replacement, compressor oil top-off, and up to 5 pounds of refrigerant.

During the premium inspection, trained Kenworth dealer service technicians check the belts and hoses, air-conditioning airflow and controls, discharge and suction lines, electrical connections, compressor, evaporator/heater coil, and condenser coil, among other items.
