Built for comfort

When you drive for a living, comfort equates to increased productivity and, therefore, money in your pocket. The HVAC system in your heavy-duty Mack® truck works hard to control temperature, keep you comfortable in the cab and handle tasks such as defrosting the windshield on a cold morning - getting you on the road faster.

Your hard-working Mack truck was born with high performance HVAC components, built to withstand even the most extreme work environments. With proper preventive maintenance such as monitoring your receiver drier's moisture indicator and cleaning your condenser every 12 months, you can drive with confidence that your HVAC components will keep running strong.

But add in factors like contaminated refrigerant oil and lack of preventive maintenance, and your HVAC system could fail. It's important to get your HVAC system checked in three-, six- and 12-month intervals by Mack-certified technicians who can spot potential problems before they start. Your Mack dealership's factory-trained techs use supplies and equipment that meet Mack's high performance standards. Trust the folks who built your truck in the first place to avoid hidden sources of HVAC contamination, such as:

  • Old supplies, such as PAG oils or seals, that may have been exposed to air or moisture
  • Neglected recovery equipment that is harboring contaminants
  • Vacuum pumps with air and moisture in the system
  • Recovered refrigerant

If you need to replace your HVAC components, you'll want parts that are engineered for dependability and peak performance, just like your Mack truck. For example, FLX7 compressors from Sanden® offer a pressure relief valve to guard against abnormal pressure conditions, a field coil diode to prevent electrical damage to the clutch and a heavy-duty clutch bearing to handle higher pressures and loads.

To avoid unscheduled downtime, make an appointment for a complete HVAC system check with the service experts at your nearest Mack Trucks dealership. Ask your dealership's Mack parts experts about ordering high quality HVAC system components in bulk to stay repair ready.
