Air Conditioning Service
The function of an air conditioner is to help remove the heat and humidity from inside the passenger compartment of the vehicle. Powered by the serpentine belt, the air conditioning compressor compresses the refrigerant to pressurize it and pump it through the system. The refrigerant is pushed through a valve where pressure and temperature are reduced. The now-cool refrigerant travels through the evaporator in the passenger compartment. As a result, cooled air is blown into your vehicle. This refrigerant returns to the compressor, where the cycle begins once again.

When auto air conditioning systems break down, refrigerant leaks. Not only is refrigerant harmful to the environment, it's also harmful to your car. 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.

Typically speaking we only think about the AC system when it isn't working correctly, but the reality is, it really should be serviced at least every 4 years. As the system loses some of the refrigerant as part of what is considered normal, it is replaced with air, which creates moisture in the system, which periodically needs to be removed through a process called evacuation, which involves hooking up a vacuum pump and putting the system into vacuum, the system should then be re-oiled and recharged with refrigerant. Good maintenance will ensure your AC system will continue to work properly.
