Air Conditioning

Air conditioning leaks are a common problem in automobiles. The cool winter air often causes issues with the fitting of the air conditioning system.

Problem:

The Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) valve is clogged causing loss of power. If neglected a costly repair bill is imminent.

Solution:

Remove EGR valve and attach a specialized tool at the EGR port, where a carbon-attacking chemical eliminates carbon build-up.

We offer maintenance and repair services for your air conditioning system. If your system has broken down, or if you simply need a recharge, we’re here to help. Our top quality service and friendly staff will get you back on the road and enjoying the luxury of air conditioning.

Air Conditioning System

air-conditioner-system2 This system shares air ducts, controls and a blower with the heater, but has its own refrigerant system. The air conditioning system is comprised of the following components:

  • COMPRESSOR
    This is a pump that pressurizes and circulates the refrigerant through the system..
  • CONDENSER
    As the refrigerant flows through the condenser, it gives off heat and converts from gas to liquid.
  • RECEIVER/DRYER OR ACCUMULATOR
    This is where clean, dry refrigerant is stored as it circulates through the system.
  • ORIFICE TUBE OR EXPANSION VALVE
    This is a metering device that controls the flow of refrigerant throughout the system.
  • EVAPORATOR CORE
    Refrigerant enters the evaporator core as a liquid. Heat from the air converts the liquid refrigerant back into a gas, which cools the air before it enters your car.
