Air Conditioning Maintenance, Service & Repair

 

Air Conditioning Maintenance

Most car owners in Northern Detroit in suburbs such as Rochester Hills, Utica, or Troy Michigan donít service their air conditioning until after it fails. Maintaining your car or truck 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 canít cool the air as well.Automobile Air Conditioning Service for cars and trucks

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 air conditioning parts will wear out prematurely, and we all know that air conditioning repairs can be costly in and around Shelby Township.

Air conditioning service at Auto Medics of Shelby near Rochester Hills Michigan starts with a 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 itís inspected for cracks or wear.

The air conditioning compressor and other components are checked for proper operation by your Auto Medics of Shelby service technician. Then comes the leak test. If a leak is detected, often in a hose or connection, itís repaired and the system is retested. Your Auto Medics of Shelby technician 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 air conditioner is working, and youíre on your way.

How often this should be done at Auto Medics of Shelby varies from vehicle to vehicle. Your car or light trucks ownerís manual will have the manufacturerís recommendation and, of course, your considerate Auto Medics of Shelby service advisor can tell you. Itís typically every two years.

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.auto repair shop Shelby Twp. Michigan

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 MICHIGAN?
