AC Repair & Recharge

The function of an automotive air conditioner is to help remove the heat and humidity from inside the passenger compartment of the vehicle. Powered by a belt, the air conditioning compressor compresses the refrigerant to pressurize it and pump it through the automobile’s ventilation system. The refrigerant is pushed through a valve where pressure and temperature are reduced. The now-cool refrigerant travels through the evaporator in the passenger compartment. As a result, cooled air is blown into your vehicle. This refrigerant returns to the compressor, where the cycle begins once again.

Our St Helena ASE certified technicians will:

  • visually inspect the air conditioning compressor drive belt for cracks or damage
  • visually inspect accessible components for leaks or damage
  • check the operation of the air conditioning compressor and other air conditioning components
  • evacuate refrigerant from the system
  • vacuum test the system
  • recharge the air conditioning system using the appropriate refrigerant to the system capacity according to the vehicle manufacturer’s specifications

The cost of repairing your air-conditioner is much more affordable than you think and with a Cooling System Check Up, you can save yourself a large AC repair bill down the road!
