Letís talk about air conditioning service and repair issues for
Northern Detroit or more specifically, Shelby Township. Most of us living in cities such as
Rochester, Rochester Hills, Troy, Sterling Hts., Utica, and any other suburbs in
Macomb County Michigan donít give our air conditioning a
second thought as long as itís making cold air. But itís a complex
system that we should think about before it starts
blowing hot air.
The refrigerant in the air conditioner contains a special oil that
lubricates and cools the A/C parts. This oil is eventually used up.
Your air conditioner still makes cold air, but the parts donít have
oil to protect them and they wear out faster than they should so
itís important to service the air conditioner as recommended by your
Auto Medics of Shelby service center.
Replacing old refrigerant has another benefit: refrigerant tends to
gather moisture and become corrosive. That causes leaks in the
system which can be expensive to repair. Fresh refrigerant protects
the air conditioning components and keeps the system operating at
peak efficiency so it doesnít have to work as hard to keep you cool.
Even with regular service A/C parts can just wear out. Normal wear
and tear eventually gets to all moving parts.
Addressing early problems can save on more extensive repairs down
the road. For instance, a common failure is the clutch that turns
the compressor on and off. If you can take care of a bad A/C clutch
when it first starts having problems, you may be able to save the
compressor. Wait too long and youíll have to replace both.
Check your ownerís manual or ask your Shelby Township service advisor
at Auto Medics of Shelby for service recommendations. And if youíre
hearing strange sounds when your air conditioning turns on, or if it
just isnít as cold as it used to be, have Auto Medics of Shelby see what itíll take to keep you cool.
THE BASICS BEHIND AIR
CONDITIONING SYSTEM SERVICES AT AUTO MEDICS OF SHELBY TWP MI.
Car air conditioning systems promote a comfortable cabin interior and help prevent driver fatigue. During normal
vehicle operation, a substantial amount of heat is created by the engine and exterior contributors like the road and
sun. Your vehicleís AC system is responsible for cooling, purifying, and circulating air. Your air conditioning system
works through a series of processes that involve refrigerant. In your vehicle, the refrigerant is responsible for
removing heat from the cabin compartment. Refrigerant goes through a continuous cycle of air compression that is
dependent on your compressorís drive belt. The compressor pumps the refrigerant through the system where it is
transformed from a hot gas into a liquid and then cooled. Through a number of other components, such as the condenser,
compressor, and evaporator, the liquid is again processed into a gas, pressurized, and vaporized before being released
into the cabin as cool air.
WHY SHOULD YOU HAVE AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM SERVICES PERFORMED AUTO MEDICS OF SHELBY?
Like most aspects of car maintenance, treating a problem with your vehicleís air conditioning system early can help
prevent major repairs. For example, an air conditioning system operating on low refrigerant due to a leak will
eventually damage the compressor. Replacing or repairing the compressor can be more expensive than sealing the leak
and refilling the refrigerant. Some symptoms to beware of regarding a faulty air conditioning system include an
inoperative fan or blower, an unusual amount of noise during regular operation, and, of course, reduced cooling
capability. Stale smelling air is another sign that something is wrong with your vehicleís air conditioner. A clogged
compressor, evaporator, condenser, or expansion valve can contribute to AC system failure. Routine maintenance now can
help you avoid major AC repairs down the road.

THE BASICS BEHIND AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM DIAGNOSTIC SERVICES AT AUTO MEDICS OF SHELBY TWP
Your vehicleís air conditioning system cools, purifies, and circulates air throughout the vehicle to promote a
comfortable cabin environment and prevent driver fatigue. The air conditioning system operates in a continuous cycle,
sending refrigerant through a sealed system to remove hot air from the cabin compartment. As the refrigerant flows
through the air conditioning system, it is turned from a hot gas into a liquid, which is then cooled, turned into a
gas again, and vaporized in order to absorb heat from the cabin. At the end of the cycle, the cool air is blown into
the cabin. This process is made possible by the drive belt, which drives the compressor, the main component of the air
conditioning system. The compressor works in concert with the condenser, evaporator, and other parts. If any of these
components cease to operate efficiently, the functionality of the entire system is at risk. When the performance of
your vehicleís air conditioning diminishes, allow us to identify and solve the issue through an AC diagnostic.
WHY SHOULD YOU HAVE AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM DIAGNOSTIC SERVICES PERFORMED AT AUTO MEDICS OF SHELBY TOWNSHIP
If your air conditioning system creates an unusual amount of noise while running, produces an abnormal odor, or blows
stale air instead of cool air, then you may need the assistance of our service staff. During an AC diagnostic, we will
inspect the belts for cracks, the compressor for leaks, the electrical components for connectivity, and the entire
system for low pressure. Our service staff may also evacuate and recharge your system with refrigerant according to
your manufacturerís specifications. During an air conditioning system diagnostic, we will use professional leak
detection tools to locate the problem plaguing your system. Watch for early symptoms for an air conditioning system in
need of repair, and contact us online or call us when you are in need of service.
