Automotive Air Conditioning (AC) Service | Phoenix & Glendale
If you've encountered air conditioning issues with your car, you understand how uncomfortable it can be to drive, especially at the peak of summer. Typically, when you turn on the A/C, and it still releases little or no cool air, it's evident that something is wrong. Opening the windows will only give you a slight relief, which is why we suggest bringing your vehicle into our shop for A/C service as soon as you start experiencing an issue.
Community Tire Pros & Auto Care can provide you high-quality and reliable A/C services to ensure you enjoy quality interior air and comfort. We are passionate about cars, and taking care of you, and your vehicle is our priority. That said, we place you, our client, at the core of what we do. We have trained customer-care specialists and ASE-certified technicians who work together to put your mind at ease and ensure you have a memorable experience working with us.
When providing A/C services and repairs, our ASE-certified experts will usually work on the five main components of the system.
- Compressor – It's the main part of the A/C system that applies pressure on the refrigerant to cool the air.
- Condenser – Located in front of the radiator, the condenser reduces the temperature of gases coming from the refrigerant. It also moves cool liquid from the refrigerant to the accumulator.
- Accumulator/Receiver – Your car's A/C system will have an accumulator or receiver/dryer, depending on the model. Accumulators are found in vehicles with orifice tubes, while a receiver is found in cars with thermal expansion valves. The dryer removes moisture from the gas entering the compressor.
- Thermal expansion valves/orifice tube – In automotive A/C systems, you'll find the thermal expansion valve or orifice tube located between the condenser and the evaporator. These regulate the temperature and pressure of the A/C system.
- Evaporator – The evaporator cools the air from the refrigerant before it is blown out into the cabin.
Below are some red flags that you need to get your car's A/C checked by a professional technician:
- Unpleasant smell or odor in the vehicle's interior
- Problems adjusting the air pressure
- Moisture, debris, and dirt on the air filters
- A/C blows little or no cold air
- Air temperature doesn’t match setting
