    Refrigerant level and air filter are two most important components for your vehicle’s AC to function properly. Good Ac is necessary for summers.

    I have a quick question for you. I heard vertical tank air compressors are better than horizontal tank compressors. Is that true? From what I’ve been told the vertical tanks can hold more air. I really appreciate the help!
