It is not unusual to care about your air conditioners only when the summer is slowly approaching, but when the air con in your car is concerned you should approach things differently.
The air con in your car not only keeps you cool during hot summer days, it also keeps you warm during winter and reduces the humidity and moisture in the cabin of your car.
Your car air con needs proper service and maintenance so that it can continue to function. What does an air conditioner service for your car include?
All air conditioning systems work the same way, whether they are in a building or in a car. It all comes down to thermodynamics and a process called the refrigeration cycle.
Your car AC uses a refrigerant in the form of a cool liquid which gets pressurized in a compressor so that it evaporates into a gas. Afterwards, it removes or absorbs heat from the air to cool off or warm up the cabin of your car.
The refrigerant actually removes the heat from your cabin, and, with a little help from the car's blower it provides you with cool air.
In most cases, your car air con doesn't work properly because of a refrigerant leak. You turn it on, the blower motor runs normally, but your cabin doesn't cool off as it should.
Fear not, as car air con service that involves recharging the air con refrigerant is a straightforward process. It doesn't take much time, and, in most cases, will not cost you a fortune to get fixed.
You can always pay a visit to United Tires, where we will thoroughly examine your whole A/C system. If we suspect a refrigerant leak, we will run a leak diagnostic test. Usually, the leak comes from a hose, which can be replaced very easily.
Sometimes, the leak might be associated with something more complex, but more often than not it’s the hose. Once it's replaced, the whole system gets refilled with new refrigerant.
During the process of refilling, we need to follow the manufacturer's specification closely, because the whole system needs to be re-pressurized accordingly.
You should only have a qualified mechanic undertake the recharging process.
If you're experiencing a refrigerant leak, that's not good for the environment, because refrigerant gas is extremely harmful to the ozone layer of our planet's atmosphere.
If it turns out that the car AC service that you need is not to fix a refrigerant leak, this means that some other component in the system is the source.
A wide range of possible causes also means a wide range of costs for the repairs. During the air conditioner service, it could also turn out that a simple O-ring for a hose might solve your problems for just a few dollars.
On the other hand, bigger and more complex parts such as the evaporator or compressor may add up to very pricey repairs, since the labor cost often dictates the price.
You can always check the user's manual and follow the manufacturer's guidelines or you can contact our service advisor to find out more about your car's needs. In most cases, you should pay us a visit every two years for maintenance service.
