No matter what the weather, we know it’s hard to keep your cool when your air conditioning isn’t working properly. Using your electrical system, engine, and the transference of chemicals through a heat exchanger makes these systems rather complex and expensive to repair. Also, today’s systems actually run the A/C while the heater is running, to take moisture out of the warmer air, so it’s not uncommon to have your A/C system running almost whenever you drive. It’s just natural that over time, refrigerant and oil will begin to leak from the system, resulting in less cool air being produced or complete failure of a system component.
Today’s vehicles make use of one of two types of refrigerant: Freon 134A or Freon 1234y. Both contain a small amount of oil which helps to lubricate components while in operation. Operating under pressure, this refrigerant will eventually find a leak point and slowly leave the system, rendering your A/C weak and ineffective. And since there is a leak, it can also collect moisture, making the fluid corrosive to system components as well. With so many components…compressor, clutch, hoses, filter/dryer, condenser, pressure switches and more…it’s always best to come see us at the first sign of any A/C malfunction.
Service for standard and hybrid R1234yf vehicles
We have the capabilities to perform reclamations on all standard and hybrid R1234yf vehicles. It permits recovering and recycling refrigerant with no risk of release into the environment, and also permits purging the A/C system of humidity and deposits contained in the oil. Our machine is equipped with a built-in evaporator/separator that removes oil and other impurities from the refrigerant recovered from the A/C system and collects them in a container for that purpose. The fluid is then filtered, recycled and returned to the tank installed in the machine. Our machine also permits running certain operational and leak tests on the A/C system.
Get your system inspected annually
That’s why it’s important to have your system inspected annually for leaks and efficient operation. And if you suspect a problem, or if the air just isn’t as cold as it used to be, come in and let us take a look. We’ll test your system for proper operation, and if it isn’t working as it should, we’ll be able to diagnose the problem quickly and give you an estimate of repair. We’ll have you comfortably back on the road in no time! Now how cool is that?
