Air Conditioning Service/Repair

air conditioning serviceToday’s vehicle a/c systems can lose 5% of their refrigerant per year causing the system to become inefficient. Another thing to remember is the a/c system is used all year long, every time the defroster is used the a/c system is activated to assist in removing the moisture from inside the vehicle which can defog windows much faster than non a/c equipped vehicles. It is recommended that modern a/c systems be tested annually to assure peak performance. Schedule an appointment with one of our factory trained professionals and let us make sure you’re a/c system is running efficiently. We have the latest equipment available to diagnose the computerized components, as well as to service all the different systems including the newer systems on hybrid and electric vehicles. Below is a brief explanation of the major components that make these a/c systems work so well:

 

Compressor:

The compressor is a belt-driven device that compresses refrigerant gas and transfers it into the condenser. The compressor is the core of your vehicle's air conditioning system.

 

Condenser:

The condenser's primary function is to cool the refrigerator. The condenser dissipates heat released by compressed gases and condenses them into high pressure liquids.

 

Receiver (Drier):

The receiver is a metal container that serves as a storage receptacle for the refrigerant; also known as a drier because it absorbs moisture from the refrigerant and filters out harmful debris and acids. You should change your drier every 3-4 years to ensure quality filtration and prevent any chemical damage.

 

Orifice Tube/Expansion Valve:

The orifice tube (also known as the expansion valve) is a controlling mechanism that regulates refrigerant flow throughout the system. It also converts high pressure liquid refrigerant (from the condenser) into low pressure liquid, so that it can enter the evaporator.

 

Evaporator:

The evaporator removes heat from the inside of your vehicle. The evaporator allows the refrigerant to absorb heat, causing it to boil and change into a vapor. When this occurs, the vapor leaves the evaporator through the compressor, cooling your car and reducing humidity. The evaporator houses the most refrigerant in the heat transfer process and harmful acids can corrode it. This corrosion typically damages the evaporator beyond repair.
