Keep Cool with Car AC Service

Few things are worse than discovering your auto air conditioning system is blowing warm air on a hot summer day! That’s why it’s important to maintain your AC system. Just like other systems in your vehicle, the AC system needs regular maintenance to keep it performing its best. Over time, parts can become worn from use, leaks can develop, or moisture can get trapped in the system. 

Super nice people

Super nice people, Conner was at the front desk as well as another person but I didn’t catch her name. Both were helpful. The shop couldn’t repair my issue due to the manufacturer requiring specific tools. They did a safety inspection and didn’t charge me for it or for the diagnostics since they couldn’t perform the fix!

How Do I Know I Need Car Air Conditioner Repair? 

Fortunately, there are several signs that can let you know when it’s time to schedule auto air conditioning repair at our Kent WA shop. These include:

  • Your AC is blowing warm air
  • Your AC is blowing cold air, but it’s just slightly cooler than the outdoor temperature
  • A moist, mildewy, or stale odor when you’re using your AC
  • Weak airflow coming from the vents
  • Visible water leaks or staining on your floorboards
  • Unusual noises, like rattling, when you turn on your AC

If you notice strange or foul smells when you turn on your AC, you could have mold or bacteria in the vents. This can be a health hazard for people with respiratory issues, like asthma or allergies. To prevent this, it’s best to have your cabin air filter replaced yearly and have your heater and AC vents cleaned every 2 to 3 years. As a general rule, we recommend servicing your car’s air conditioning system every 2 years. 

What Does Car AC Service Include?

Here are some common issues we address with a typical AC service. Keep in mind that we only perform the services you need.

  • Visual inspection of all air conditioner parts and components
  • Complete a performance test
  • Check the compressor for clogs or leaks
  • Inspect the cooling fan and replace it as needed
  • Recharge the system 
  • Perform a system pressure test
  • Perform a leak detection test
