Today’s cars the heating and air conditioning systems are integrated so that some parts of your climate control system are working hard all year long. Your driving comfort improves greatly when your heating and air conditioning are working properly.

Your air conditioning system works like a refrigerator, pumping freon through an evaporator under the dashboard. The freon absorbs the heat from the passenger compartment, circulates it through the condenser and releases it through the front grill of your car. When running correctly, this is a constant process that results in a cool and comfortable driving environment for you.

If your air conditioning system isn’t keeping you cool, it’s usually due to a leak in the system, or a faulty low or high pressure valve, or a clogged line or orifice tube. You should have your full climate control system inspected regularly to ensure your air conditioning and heating systems are working properly.

Your vehicle’s air conditioning system unit has six major components:

  • The refrigerant: carries heat. In modern cars, refrigerant is a substance called R-134a. Older cars' refrigerant is called r-12 freon, which is more expensive and difficult to find than R-134a.
  • The compressor circulates and compresses refrigerant within the vehicle's cooling system.
  • Your vehicle's condenser changes the refrigerant from gas to liquid and expels heat from the car.
  • The expansion valve (sometimes called the orifice tube) is a nozzle that simultaneously drops the pressure of the refrigerant liquid, meter its flow and atomize it.
  • Your vehicle's evaporator transfers heat to the refrigerant from the air blown across it, cooling your car.
  • The receiver or dryer filters your vehicle's refrigerant and oil, removing moisture and other contaminants from them.

When your air conditioning unit is not working as it should please call us for an appointment and one of our trained air conditioning specialists will inspect your car's air conditioner, all lines, the evaporator and the compressor for leaks and wear.
