Regular AC Maintenance Will Help You Stay Cool

Regular AC system maintenance helps enable your vehicle’s system to continue to perform its best. Without it, each year the system can lose about five percent of its original efficiency. So, don’t wait until your AC is blowing warm. Keep it maintained with regular service at Brake Max Tire & Service Centers in Marana.

Our AC services include:

AC Recharge

If your vehicle’s refrigerant is low or the AC system isn’t cooling properly, you may need an AC recharge service. During this periodic maintenance service, new refrigerant is added to your AC system, which allows it to start blowing cold air as it should.

For a car AC recharge service, our AC professionals will start with a full AC system inspection to ensure there is no damage. If no issues are found that need to be repaired first, the existing refrigerant will be evacuated (removed). Then, our technician will recharge it with the proper refrigerant for your vehicle and vacuum test the system. 

Cabin/AC Filter Replacement

Your vehicle’s cabin/AC filter has a direct effect on the performance of the AC system. If your cabin air filter is clogged, it can overwork the blower motor, causing it to overheat and possibly even suffer from premature failure. Plus, a clogged filter means turning your AC up higher, which will negatively impact fuel economy. We can replace the filter, helping to restore your vehicle’s AC system to its optimal function.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Auto AC Services Does BRAKEmax Offer?

BRAKEmax Tire & Service Centers in Marana offers a full range of car AC services, including

  • Compressor checks
  • Condenser cleaning
  • Performance tests
  • Leak checks
  • Belt and hose connection checks
  • Complete refrigerant evacuation and recharge

What Does An AC Compressor Do?

This is one of the most important components of the AC system. Providing you with cool air inside the vehicle could not happen without it. The compressor pressurizes the refrigerant and causes the refrigerant to liquefy, and then that liquid is forced into the condenser, starting the chain reaction of events to make you comfortable in your car.

How Will I Know if the Compressor Needs Attention?

As soon as you notice the fan inside the car isn’t blowing cold air, get the compressor checked. Loud noises, such as grinding or squealing, can mean compressor components are failing or the bearings are seizing. There is a clutch in the compressor that can also fail.

Compressor parts can sometimes be repaired or replaced, but it is often more cost-effective to replace the compressor instead. Make an appointment at your Marana BRAKEmax for a diagnostic inspection.

Can I Still Buy Freon to Use in my Car’s AC System?

Yes, while current supplies last. For environmental reasons, Freon is no longer manufactured in or shipped to the US. Once the current supply is gone, your car will need to be retrofitted to use another coolant. Ask our professional service staff how to prepare for that.

What Does it Mean to “Recharge” the Coolant in my Car?

It simply means to refill the refrigerant in the AC system. The first thing the mechanic will check if the AC system isn’t cooling properly is the level of coolant. If it is low, they will check for leaks in the system. If there are no leaks, the coolant will be removed and then refilled to proper levels.

Can I Recharge the Coolant Myself?

A car AC recharge is not recommended as a DIY job. Systems vary a great deal and coolant capacity is different from one vehicle to another. Putting too much or not enough coolant in defeats the purpose of doing it yourself. Let BRAKEmax in Marana do it for you.

What Do I Need to Know About Repairing My Own AC System?

The most difficult part is correctly diagnosing an AC problem. You can find information on the Internet but having the tools and knowledge to fix the problem is a different matter.

How Much Will BRAKEmax Charge to Repair my AC System?

Discuss the cost of your auto AC repair with the Marana BRAKEmax service staff. There is no one answer for all vehicles, but they can give you an estimate of costs. A more precise answer depends on your vehicle’s make and model, its age, and the specific problem.
