Air Conditioning Maintenance, Service & Repair


Air Conditioning Maintenance

Most Avon Ohio area car owners don't 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 can't cool the air as well.

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 Northeast Ohio.

Air Conditioning Service Avon Ohio



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 you're on your way.

How often this should be done at Automotive Specialty Services varies from vehicle to vehicle. Your car or light trucks owner's manual will have the manufacturer's recommendation and, of course, your considerate Automotive Specialty Service Advisor can tell you. It's typically every two years.

Let's talk about air conditioning service and repair issues for Avon Ohio. Most of us living in cities such as Avon Lake, Sheffield Lake, Bay Village, Westlake, North Ridgeville, and any other suburbs in Lorain County Ohio don't give our air conditioning a second thought as long as it's making cold air. But it's 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 don't have oil to protect them and they wear out faster than they should so it's important to service the air conditioner as recommended by your Automotive Specialty 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 doesn't 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 you'll have to replace both.

Check your owner's manual or ask your Automotive Specialty Service Advisor for service recommendations. And if you're hearing strange sounds when your air conditioning turns on, or if it just isn't as cold as it used to be, have Automotive Specialty Services see what it'll take to keep you cool.
