If you’re looking for the right place for your car air conditioning service and repair it’s important to make sure the shop you’re taking your vehicle to a shop that has qualified technicians. Different shops may have different requirements for their technicians and therefore may offer a different quality of service.
When it comes to car air conditioner service and repair, it’s important to make sure you use a qualified technician. There are a few different reasons for this. First, the air conditioning system in your vehicle is a relatively sensitive system. The smallest amount of impurities introduced in the refrigerant or improper alignment of equipment can cause serious problems either immediately or in the longevity of your system. Second, the refrigerant used in your air conditioning system is a compound controlled by the EPA and needs to be treated with care. Anyone handling the refrigerant needs to be certified by a program approved by the EPA, like the ASE’s Refrigerant Recovery and Recycling Program.
Once you find a shop properly qualified to handle your AC service and repair it’s important to know what you’re getting into. One of the things that make AC service and repair so expensive is that any time the system is opened, meaning a connection is broken like removing a component or hose, then the refrigerant needs to be safely removed to protect the environment and relieve the pressure in the system. Also, when the system is put back together and sealed a vacuum needs to be drawn on the system to ensure no air or contamination exist before the refrigerant is refilled. This process is time consuming and requires special equipment so it can be expensive.
Aside from the evacuation and refilling of refrigerant, the actual labor associated with replacing equipment can be expensive as well. For example, in my vehicles replacing the evaporator requires the removal of a significant amount of the vehicle’s interior and dashboard so it can be a length, and again, expensive process.
All of these realities of your air conditioning system along with the qualifications required to perform the job add up to make most car air conditioning service and repair items relatively expensive trips to your mechanic.
Whether you consider yourself a DIY master, or someone who doesn’t like getting their hands dirty, there may be a simple repair for your air conditioning system that anyone can perform. The vast majority of problems with the air conditioning in your car come from simple leaks in the system.
