Auto Air Conditioning Repair in Chula Vista, CA
How do my car's air conditioning and heating systems work?
We take advantage of the fact that we can stay warm in our cars during Chula Vista, CA winters and cool during [city 2] summers, but our vehicles' air conditioning and heating systems are fairly complex. To heat up your car, hot engine coolant is circulated through a small radiator, which is often called a heater core. There is a fan in front of the heater core to blow cool air to blow cold outside air over the fins. As this air travels through the heater core, it heats up and this is the warm air that blows out of your heater vents.
Your vehicle's air conditioning system includes the condenser, compressor, expansion valve and evaporator. Refrigerant or coolant is compressed in the compressor and turns into a hot gas. This hot gas is cooled into a liquid state in the condenser, then travels to the expansion valve. In the expansion valve, the refrigerant turns back into a gas and rapidly cools in the evaporator. A fan blows over the evaporator and cools the air that blows out of your vents. If any parts of your vehicle's heating or air conditioning systems are damaged, it can effect the entire system. If you sense a problem, feel free to bring your car or truck to Dave's Auto Service in Chula Vista today.
What is an air conditioning evacuation/recharge?
If the interior of your Acura, Alfa Romeo, AMG, or Audi feels uncomfortable even with the air conditioning or heater on, your air conditioning system likely needs repairs. Any time a component of your air conditioning system is repaired or replaced, the system must be evacuated before it can be recharged. This is done because once the system is opened, moisture from the outside can get in and freeze, which could potentially cause more damage in the future. An air conditioning evacuation also makes sure that all the gases are removed before new refrigerant is added.
At Dave's Auto Service in US, our skilled technicians will hook up specialized equipment that monitors the high and low pressure sides of the air conditioning system. We'll use a special vacuum to remove any gas, air and moisture in the system, and will monitor this pressure as we work to ensure there are no leaks. If there are none, your air conditioning system is successfully recharged. Your air conditioning system should be recharged around every two years.
