Keep Cool With Regular AC Maintenance

Without regular maintenance, your vehicle’s AC system loses roughly five percent of its original efficiency every year. Don’t wait until your AC is blowing warm air—make sure it stays in top condition with service from the vehicle AC professionals at Brake Max Tire & Service Centers Green Valley.

Cabin/AC Filter Replacement

Your cabin/AC filter has a direct effect on your AC system’s performance. A clogged cabin air filter causes the blower motor to overwork, overheat, and even suffer from premature failure. Plus, impeded airflow requires you to turn your AC up higher, negatively impacting your fuel economy. We can replace the filter and help restore your vehicle’s AC system to its normal function.

AC Recharge Service

It may be time for an AC recharge if the refrigerant in your vehicle is low or the AC system is no longer cooling properly. This service is a periodic maintenance service where new refrigerant is added to your AC system to allow it to start blowing cold air again.

During a car AC recharge service, our technicians will first check the system for leaks or damage. If no leaks are found that need to be repaired first, the existing refrigerant will be evacuated (removed). Then, the technician will vacuum test the system and recharge it using the refrigerant that’s right for your vehicle.

What Are The Red Flags That Indicate Auto Air Conditioning Problems?

The first one, of course, is warm air blowing from the air-conditioning (AC) vents into the car. Here are some other signs of auto AC issues:

  • Moisture inside the car. In addition to cooling your car, the AC system also dehumidifies the air that flows into the passenger compartment. If the system gets blocked, water enters the cabin instead of being diverted outside. Watch especially for water on the floorboards.
  • Unusual noises. Rattles or clicking sounds could mean something is stuck in the system and that the condenser needs attention.
  • Smells. There shouldn’t be any. However, if you smell something inside the car, the AC system might have mold or mildew growing in it.

A vehicle’s AC system is a complex system that can fail in multiple places. If you need a diagnostic inspection or auto AC repair because you experience some of the signs mentioned above, make an appointment at BRAKEmax.

Can I Repair My Car’s Ac Myself?

Here are some reasons for letting professionals handle your car’s AC problems:

  • The electronics in today’s AC systems are complicated and use sophisticated computer systems that control multi-zone air flow in different areas of the vehicle. These systems require the use of high-tech diagnostic equipment to determine the source of any problem with the AC.
  • Once the issue is found, most DIY mechanics will not have the proper equipment or tools to repair these complicated AC systems.
  • If you attempt any repairs on your car’s AC system, your vehicle warranty may be voided. Always check your warranty before attempting any repair. And remember that any auto shop with factory-trained technicians can take care of your AC problems.
  • The process to repair an AC system can be dangerous, especially if the vehicle still uses Freon, which is highly toxic and shouldn’t be released into the atmosphere. EPA rules govern how to properly dispose of Freon.

Can I Still Use Freon In My AC System?

Freon can no longer be manufactured in or imported into the US, although it is legal to operate AC systems that use it. While the current supply lasts in the US, you can purchase and use it. Check with our AC specialists for more information on switching to a non-Freon-based system when the supply runs out.

What Does The AC Condenser Do?

The condenser pressurizes the refrigerant, which then becomes liquid. This liquid then flows through the AC system and cools the inside of the vehicle.

What Does It Mean To “Recharge” An AC System?

A car AC recharge simply means to refill the system when the refrigerant level gets low. Without adequate coolant, you won’t get the maximum cooling effect in the passenger cabin.

More importantly, though, is why the refrigerant level gets low. There may be a leak, which would need to be repaired before adding coolant. Otherwise, the system would need to be “evacuated” of the refrigerant and then refilled.
