Air Conditioning Service & Repair in Medford Oregon

Air Conditioning Service

“I feel way too hot inside my vehicle! My Air Conditioning is not working!”

“My Car is just way too hot inside and will not cool me down!” “I turn on my A/C but it just blows hot air on me!” As the temperature outside increases, our customers will start calling because the Air Conditioning in their car or truck will not cool them down. The Air Conditioning System in a vehicle is designed to remove BTU’s from the air and lower the temperature inside the vehicle to make you comfortable. If you find your self and others inside your vehicle uncomfortable, it may indicate the Air Conditioning System is not functioning correctly.

What should I do?

The Air Conditioning System in a vehicle has a big job to do. First, it needs to be able to cool and heat the inside of the vehicle. Next, it has to be able to direct the flow of air to the windshield to defrost, to the floor and to the panel vents. And last but not least the fan needs to be able to blow air at the desired volume. If any one of these functions are not working correctly, you and your passengers may not be comfortable. This would be a great time to call a shop and get your vehicle looked at by a trained automotive heating and air conditioning tech. They will be able to determine what is causing the system to not operate correctly.

Not so cool air blowing out?

The most common problem we see with a system that is just not able to cool down the inside of the car is a low charge. Every system has a total charge capacity and if there is a leak in the system, the charge amount will not be able to operate the system correctly. Leaks in the system come from a bad O-Ring seal, Service Port Fitting, Compressor, Hose, Evaporator or Condenser. UV Dye is commonly used to identify the location of the leak. Once the leak has been found, it can be fixed and the system recharged.

Major System failure?

When we talk about a major failure in a system, we commonly see a compressor that has seized up and the system has metal contamination. When this happens, the system needs to be carefully cleaned out and needed parts replaced. Most of the time, we will replace the Compressor, Condenser, Accumulator/Dryer and the Expansion Valve/Orifice Tube. When the system has been repaired correctly, you can look forward to many years of operation with out problems. Most shops will also provide a 2 Year/ 24,000 Mile Warranty.

If you still have questions:

Feel free to contact us and talk with a Service Advisor about your problem.
