Auto Air Conditioning Service in Gilbert, AZ
If you have lived in Arizona for any length of time, you know that auto air conditioning is more than just a luxury — it’s a necessity. Driving around on blacktop roads in a metal box when the temperatures soar into the triple digits isn’t just uncomfortable; it’s potentially dangerous.
That’s why it’s important to have your AC checked out regularly and to have service and repairs done by experienced certified mechanics that know how rough Arizona can be on your car. You already trust Choice Transmission & Complete Auto Repair to service your car’s engine and transmission. Now let us keep the other vital part of your car running smoothly: the air conditioner.
Auto Air Conditioner Service
Like any component of a modern car, your auto air conditioner is a complex piece of machinery with many parts and a computer to control it. With these moving parts, it’s a good idea to have a diagnostic performed every so often, especially if you suspect your auto cooling system may be losing power. Fortunately, we offer free AC inspections on request, so ask for a diagnostic next time you bring your vehicle in for an oil change or scheduled maintenance.
It’s a common misconception that the coolant for your auto air conditioner is a fluid like engine oil or antifreeze that simply needs to be “topped off” every few years or so. In fact, your air conditioner is a closed system that pumps coolant through the condenser to cool them down. Air is forced through the chilled coils and into your car as fresh cold air.
Under ideal conditions, the coolant should never need recharging. But here in the real world, you can lose coolant to loose connections or punctured hoses. When this happens, your car will continue to pump coolant through the air conditioner, but you will notice a gradual loss in effectiveness over time as your system churns out warmer air. Eventually, the car will stop pumping coolant altogether in order to protect the pump.
Servicing an air conditioner that’s blowing warm air involves finding and repairing the leak, flushing the coils (along with any grit or impurities), and refilling it with fresh coolant.
Auto Air Conditioner Repair
The air conditioner is not an isolated system. It is part of the core operation of your car and connects with the engine and electrical system. So, if your car air conditioner isn’t working (blowing out hot air or no air at all), it could be a symptom of a bigger problem, like a broken belt, leaky hose, broken compressor motor or blower, or even a larger problem in your electrical system. These can cause more serious damage to your engine or other components if left untreated.
If your air conditioner stops working, bring your car in for a free checkup by our trained and certified mechanics using the latest diagnostic equipment.
