Now that most cars come with air conditioning as standard, it has become normal to think about proper maintenance and servicing of these components as well. Did you know that your car AC needs to recharge every two years?
As vehicles tend to lose refrigerant gas over time, recharging the air conditioner is a must. Of course, you probably want a cheap air conditioner recharge.
There is a budget version in the form of an AC recharge kit, but procedures like that should be left to the professionals.
If you still want to do it on your own, make sure that your safety always comes first.
Air conditioners are basically all the same, whether they are in your car or a residential building. They all work utilizing a process called the refrigeration cycle.
The car AC system is filled with a refrigerant, which comes in the form of a cool liquid. First off, it gets pressurized in a compressor so that it can evaporate into a gas when it goes through a valve or orifice tube. At the end of the cycle, it cools off your car cabin by removing heat from the blower air.
When you use it to warm up your cabin, the blower air goes through your car’s heater core (which circulates hot coolant from the engine).
When your car AC doesn't cool you off properly, in most cases that can be traced to a refrigerant leak. Once you turn on your engine, the AC simply doesn't blow cool air.
We at United Tires assure you that it's nothing to worry about. The process of recharging is not complicated and it usually doesn't take more than an hour. Also, you don't need to worry about breaking the bank.
Once you arrive at our garage, the first thing we do is inspect your car AC thoroughly. If you suspect a refrigerant leak, we will perform a leak diagnostic test. In most cases, a hose is where the leak occurs and that isn't a pricey fix and can be resolved by simply replacing the hose.
Either way, once we replace the faulty part, we need to refill the AC system with new refrigerant. During that process we also re-pressurize the system according to the specification of your car's manufacturer. As far cheap AC recharge goes, this is the best case scenario, but there are other possibilities.
Even though a cheap air conditioner recharge at our garage is usually all it takes to make your car AC work like brand new again, sometimes we need to replace some components.
Mind you, some of them may increase labor costs, but these are not as common.
It's always wise to read your car's owner's manual and follow all the guidelines issued by the manufacturer closely. Depending on the make and model, the time interval between visits to a car AC professional servicing garage may differ, but they are usually every two years.
If you don't have your owner's manual or simply aren't sure about intervals, please contact us and a service advisor will provide you with everything you need to know about servicing and maintaining your car AC.
