RECHARGING YOUR CAR'S AC
In some instances when your car's air conditioning (AC) begins to lose its cooling power or fails to blow cool air, it is often an indicator that a more significant repair is needed. Your AC is a closed system so leaking freon may be caused by a cracked hose or seal. It may seem like a simple freon recharge would help, but without fixing why your vehicle lost freon in the first place, you would be incurring unnecessary repeat cost .
REPAIR YOUR CAR'S AC COMPRESSOR
The cool air in your car is produced primarily by the compressor. The four main functions that your vehicle's compressor carries out include pressurizing the refrigerant to cool cabin air, monitoring and controlling temperature output, sensing temperature changes inside and outside the vehicle, and moving air to your car's AC condenser.
REPAIR YOUR CAR'S AC CONDENSER
Your vehicle's A/C condenser is usually located in the front of the radiator. When your AC compressor is pressurizing the refrigerant flows to the condenser to reduce the temperature and pressure. The condenser is a vital component in keeping your car's cabin temperature cool. It moves the cooled liquid refrigerant to the receiver/dryer or accumulator.
REPAIR YOUR CAR'S AC EVAPORATOR
Located just behind the dashboard, your car evaporator is in charge of cooling air and removing moisture before it is blown into the cabin of your car or truck.
REPLACE YOUR CAR'S AC THERMAL
EXPANSION VALVE OR ORIFICE TUBE
The Thermal Expansion Valve or Orifice Tube monitors the amount of pressure and temperature of your A/C system to calculate the precise amount of refrigerant that can safely go into the evaporator. Uneven pressure can allow unwanted moisture to accumulate in a car or truck's AC system.
