There are not many issues that drive me more crazy than when my car’s A/C is not working living in the Temecula Valley where it seems that summertime never really stops. Thankfully when you bring your car into Precision Auto Electric & Air Conditioning the automotive professionals are skilled at diagnosing a car’s A/C and repairing the problems quickly.
Common A/C problems include:
At Precision Auto the experienced professionals can perform an A/C Performance Check to diagnose why the car A/C is having a problem and what needs to be repaired. They understand that A/C problems can be caused by many issues, including a Freon leak from a cracked o-ring seal in the A/C line, a worn out filter/condenser, a loose wire, or excessive heat radiation from the engine. They will help you with your A/C problem and get you feeling cool again.
They can also check if you’re in need of an A/C recharge service. Precision Auto offers an A/C Evacuate and Recharge where we drain the entire air conditioning system of Freon, measure it, and then recharge it with the exact right amount of added Freon your car needs. Furthermore, they don’t have a set price for how much Freon per service, they only charge you for the added Freon you were missing. Then they inspect A/C pressure and temperature control to make sure everything is working correctly on a full recharge service.
The compressor consumes low pressure gas A/C Freon and turns it into high pressure gas – the pressure can be as high as 300 PSI.
The Freon high pressure gas is then pumped in to the A/C radiator, where the Freon gas converts into a liquid as a result of the high pressure air flow and cooler temperature. Then a fan blows this into the cabin of your car, which is the magic of car AC, and cools you off.
When this change occurs, the gas dispels latent heat. The Freon liquid passes through a valve, it loses pressure and begins to boil and moves through the evaporator.
Once in the evaporator, the Freon liquid converts back to a gas and returns to the compressor, where it will once again increase in pressure and then change into a liquid in the radiator.
