A/C – Complete Service
If your car’s air-conditioning system blows only warm air on hot days, it’s probably because it is low on refrigerant, and the most likely cause is a leak somewhere in the system, every year your A/C system loses a small amount of the Freon needed to cool your vehicle, usually this goes unnoticed until it is hardly working. If the air conditioning stops working (but the fan continues to blow warm air), a leak in a hose, connector or other part of the system is probably the culprit. During the winter, you may notice that the defroster isn’t clearing fogged up windows, and that also is a sign you have a leak. Most defrosters engage the air conditioning to dehumidify the air, so A/C systems are not only important during the summer but also during the winter in many vehicles. (NOTE: We do not service A/C Systems that have had A/C Sealant put into system. This would require full system replacement, to ensure equipment is not damaged.)
Heater Core Replacement
Heater cores are like a small radiator in appearance, their function is to have the hot coolant from your engine pass through it and is used to heat the inside of your vehicle. Heater cores can start to leak or become clogged causing you to lose coolant sometimes smelling the antifreeze inside the vehicle, and if it is not working correctly can cause other failures in the system from loss of coolant or a clogged system. We can help take care of that issue for you.
