Air Conditioning Service at JC Car Care and Tire - SouthNov 10th, 2015
Most St Charles people don't service their vehicle air conditioning until after it fails. Maintaining your air conditioning system means that you always have enough refrigerant to properly do the job. Small leaks in the air conditioning system allow the refrigerant to escape and the system can't cool the air as well.
Along with the refrigerant, a special oil circulates in the system. The oil lubricates air conditioning components and keeps the seals resilient. Low refrigerant and lubricating oil means that the vehicle air conditioning parts will wear out prematurely, and all St Charles know that St Charles AC repair can be costly.
Affordable air conditioning service at JC Car Care and Tire - South in St Charles starts with a thorough visual inspection of the components for signs of damage or leaks. The compressor is driven by a belt from the engine, most often the serpentine belt, so it's inspected for cracks or wear.
The vehicle air conditioning compressor and other components are checked for proper operation. Then comes the leak test. If an air conditioning leak is detected, often in a hose or connection, it's repaired and the system is retested. Your friendly and knowledgeable JC Car Care and Tire - South will also perform a temperature drop test. If needed, the old refrigerant is evacuated and the system is recharged with clean, fresh refrigerant. A final test insures that the vehicle air conditioner is working, and you're on your way. How often this should be done varies from vehicle to vehicle. Your owner's manual will have the manufacturer's recommendation and, of course, your JC Car Care and Tire - South can tell you. It's typically every two years.
