Car Air Conditioning Repair Service in Sebastian, FL
The good news is that, like a lot of other things on newer-model cars, automotive A/C systems are much more reliable than they were a generation ago. That doesn’t mean they’re trouble-free, though. The hoses, seals, gaskets and lines in an automotive A/C system are porous and even a late-model vehicle can lose as much as five percent of its refrigerant capacity over the course of a year.
The air conditioning system in a vehicle is much like a refrigerator – it’s a closed loop that works on a principle of compression and expansion of a gas to provide cooling. The refrigerant is driven into the compressor, where pressure turns it into liquid form; when it leaves the compressor, it then evaporates into a gas again and the cool air that results is forced into your vehicle’s cabin by means of the blower motor.
There are quite a few parts in this circuit, and unlike your refrigerator, they are subject to a great deal of vibration and heat just in normal operation.
At St Lucie Battery & Tire in Sebastian, FL, A/C repair is a big part of what we do. With a staff of trained and experienced auto repair techs, we will:
- Check the drive belt and compressor
- Check the refrigerant level and recharge if necessary
- Check the condenser, dryer, expansion valve and other parts
- Check the condition of all the hoses, lines and seals in the system
- Check the blower motor, damper, ducts, and controls for proper operation

Make an appointment with us at St Lucie Battery & Tire in Sebastian, FL and let our technicians get a look at your car’s A/C system before the temperatures start climbing. Your family and friends will thank you!
