Your Car’s Air Conditioner

During the really hot part of the summer you car’s a/c needs to perform well. Vehicle air conditioning systems depend on just the right amount of Freon in them to operate at peak cold. Sometime we can put the right amount of Freon (R134) back in and you are set for a long while. We will add dye to check your system for leaks. Recharging your a/c system is the quickest and least expensive way to get you back on the road- if that’s all your system needs. The a/c system in your vehicle is similar to the one at your house, but not at 60 mph (and potholes)!!!

Not an air conditioning system anymore

HVAC is the name and system in your car, truck, or SUV. Heating, ventilation and air conditioning system is what it stands for. This system can remove ice, fog or moisture from the interior glass and sometimes runs in the winter. The system is more complicated with a considerably more advanced sensor and electronics than just ten years ago.

A/C Facts

  • Packard was the first manufacture to offer an air conditioner standard in 1939.
  • Cars now use 4 to 5 horsepower to run your a/c

A/C System Recharge

If your car’s a/c just needs an evacuation and recharge because it is a little low, we can do that. We evacuate the auto air conditioner, add Freon back in (to factory settings), add pag oil ( or Polyalkylene Glycol, is a synthetic oil specifically designed for automotive air conditioner compressors) and a little dye. The ultraviolet dye is great at showing us a leak as it circulates through the A/C system. With a black light we can find most leaks right away. Some leaks are so small that it needs to be in the system for a little while going over the bumps and potholes for us to locate the smallest of leaks. Bring it back by for a free check if there are any issues at all.

Compressors can go bad

If your air conditioner compressor is bad we have the expertise to fix it quickly and get you safely back on the road. Often when the compressor goes bad it circulates metal particles throughout the cars air conditioning system and it needs to be flushed along with the compressor, accumulator/dryer and orifice device to do a complete and warrantied repair.

A/C repairs can be electrical

With a/c controls becoming increasingly complicated, the electrical part of the A/C can cause the system not to work. This could be something as simple as a fuse or a sensor or as a complex wiring issue that will take time and a master mechanic to diagnose. We need to confirm that the system is charged up and eliminated from being an issue before moving to the electrical diagnostic tests. Some auto a/c system issues can be more than one thing. An electrical problem can cause an issue with the Freon charge or the other way around.

Issues with your Cabin Air Filter

Some problems with air flow blockage and smell can be caused by a dirty air filter. A good rule of thumb is to replace your cabin air filter every time you replace the air filter. The cabin air filter is often forgotten but is very important to keep out pollen and dust out of the inside of your car. If it is neglected for very long it can cause issues such as the air conditioner not being able to breathe and cold air not getting through to the car’s interior.
