Car Air Conditioning Repair Service in Port Saint Lucie, FL
The principle behind automotive air conditioning hasn’t changed for a long, long time. It’s actually identical to how your refrigerator works; a compressor changes a gas refrigerant to liquid, which then expands and evaporates to provide cooling. In the case of your vehicle, the compressor is driven by a belt from the engine, but otherwise, there really isn’t a lot of difference in the two designs. The cold air is then directed by the blower through the ducts and vents, and into the passenger compartment.
Your refrigerator, however, isn’t subjected to the extremes of heat and vibration that your engine and A/C see. The seals and rubberized lines of an A/C system are porous, and even a late model vehicle can lose as much as five percent of its refrigerant over the course of a year.
More often than not, underperforming A/C is due to low refrigerant levels. The refrigerant we use at St Lucie Battery & Tire also contains oil to keep the compressor’s moving parts lubricated, as well as a fluorescent dye that makes it easy to find any spots where the system may be leaking. Home A/C recharge kits are everywhere, but it’s better to leave this job up to a shop…since there are several ways it can go wrong.
At St Lucie Battery & Tire, A/C repair is a big part of what we do. Our trained and experienced service techs will give your system a complete checkup, including:
- Checking refrigerant level
- Checking condenser, coil, evaporator and dryer for condition
- Checking compressor and drive belt
- Checking blower motor, controls, damper and ducts for proper operation and condition
- Checking conditioned air temperature at the vents
- Checking cabin air filter
