Air Conditioning Repair

A vehicle’s AC system can be thought of as a highly pressurized contained system, that has to maintain an optimal level of pressures to work properly and can contain no leaks. The system is divided into what is known as two “sides”, a high pressure side and a low pressure side. A substance known as Freon, along with a special type of oil, is generally added to the low side of the system and circulated throughout. While circulating, Freon will be converted from a highly pressurized liquid state, to eventually a lower pressurized gas state. During this conversion process, a cooling effect takes place as a result. The three main functioning components of a vehicle’s AC system include the: AC compressor, orifice tube, and the receiver drier. If the AC system is not working due to being compressor related, the replacement of the: AC compressor, orifice tube, and receiver drier are all required to be changed in order to ensure the client with a manufacture warranty and proper functioning of the system.

The vehicle’s heating system is a fairly simple mechanism.  Basically as a vehicle’s engine runs, anti-freeze (coolant) is circulated throughout the engine and is heated up in temperature.  As the coolant is ran through what is known as the heater core, a fan motor (blower motor) circulates the radiated heat into the cab of the vehicle.  Often time’s heater cores can leak; generally the most common sign of this is a floorboard full of coolant inside the vehicle.
