If your air conditioning isn’t working properly, you may not have the proper amount of refrigerant. Having too much or too little refrigerant can both cause your car’s A/C to not function properly and can cause damage to parts of the air conditioning system.

Our Vehicle AC Repair Process

We will usually have to start with an evacuation and recharge. This service involves evacuating all of the gas that is in the air conditioning system. We place the entire system under a vacuum. This is done to ensure that all the gas is removed from the system and to try to check for any leaks. We filter this evacuated refrigerant to try to remove any contaminates that may have entered the system. The system has to be completely empty so that we can ensure the system is recharged with the proper amount of refrigerant. Air conditioning refrigerant is measured by weight, not pressure, to ensure that the proper amount is in the system. The proper amount of refrigerant is vital to ensure that the system works properly.  This service also includes pressure and temperature checks.

During this service we also put a special dye in the refrigerant that will aid us in finding small leaks that are there currently or might happen in the future. Sometimes leaks can be very slow and they can take many drive cycles of the car heating up and cooling down. The leaks might also just need time of the system working, and under pressure, to manifest.

The issue could also be caused faulty or damaged part. These can occur over time and can include compressors, blower motors and resistors, evaporators, o rings, seals, etc.

Here are some of the common symptoms of a broken A/C that you should watch out for:

  • Vents blowing hot air
  • The air blowing cool but not cold
  • The air won’t keep the car cool on a hot day
  • The air won’t blow cold when sitting still or in traffic
  • No air blowing out of the vents
  • A/C system activates but will not function. Or won’t activate at all
  • Unusual smells
  • Moisture leaks around the ac system
