Service – AC Repair

air condition 768x512 1

Car air conditioning systems promote a comfortable cabin interior and help prevent driver fatigue. During normal vehicle operation, a substantial amount of heat is created by the engine and exterior contributors like the road and sun. Your vehicle’s AC system is responsible for cooling, purifying, and circulating air.

Leaking refrigerant can damage your vehicle’s evaporator and compressor. Getting a car air conditioner service at the first sign of trouble will save you both money and time

If you’ve noticed a lack of cooling output by your car’s A/C, but components like the blower motor appear to be operating correctly, a likely cause is a refrigerant leak in the system. R22 or R134a refrigerant itself never degrades if it’s in a sealed, pressurized system, so if an A/C system is low on refrigerant, there is almost certainly a leak in hose, connection fitting or A/C system component. Because refrigerant is highly damaging to the ozone layer, it’s a car owner’s environmental responsibility to diagnose and repair a refrigerant leak as soon as possible.

AC Performance Check

All AC repair and AC services are handled by our certified technicians. They have also completed training through approved AC programs. Your car is in good hands with our expert auto technicians, and they will examine your car’s A/C system to see if there is a leak – and if there is, they’ll stop it in their tracks before it can affect anything else. Kwik Kar recommends an air conditioning system inspection every 12,000 miles or 12 months.
