Every car has a heating and air conditioning system that must be properly and responsibly cared for to work properly. Leaky valves, blockages and filter damage can all cause issues with your vehicle’s heating and cooling, and leave your uncomfortable in harsh weather. If you’re dealing with a broken down heating or cooling system, call Lifetime Automotive today. With years of experience, our mechanics are well equipped to diagnose and quickly repair or replacement A/C systems.
A vehicular A/C system is divided into two sides, called the high side and the low side. The compressor, or the high side, works as a pump, moving refrigerant through the system. The expansion valve, or the low side, restricts the flow of that refrigerant, reducing the temperature and pressure of the air.
There are a few good reasons to bring your car into Lifetime Automotive for A/C system issues. If your car is making a strange noise, even if the air is working fine, there could be a problem with your car’s compressor. The compressor is a vital part of any heating or cooling system, so if you suspect a problem, it’s best to get it checked out. If your car simply won’t produce hot or cold air anymore, your car may be out of a refrigerant. Refrigerant can run out naturally, or there may be a leak in your system. Lifetime Automotive mechanics will be able to determine the source of the problem quickly. And if your heated or cooled air doesn’t smell, bacteria and other debris could be caught in your evaporator or filters. We can quickly clean and restore your system, so you only enjoy fresh, breathable air.
