Air Conditioning Maintenance, Service & Repair

 

Air Conditioning Maintenance

Most car owners in Eugene Oregon donít service their air conditioning until after it fails. Maintaining your car or truck air conditioning system means that you always have enough refrigerant to properly do the job. Small leaks in the air conditioning system allow the refrigerant to escape and the system canít cool the air as well.

Along with the refrigerant, a special oil circulates in the system. The oil lubricates air conditioning components, and keeps the seals resilient. Low refrigerant and lubricating oil means that the air conditioning parts will wear out prematurely, and we all know that air conditioning repairs can be costly in and around Western Oregon.

Air conditioning service at Integrity Auto Repair in Eugene Oregon starts with a visual inspection of the components for signs of damage or leaks. The compressor is driven by a belt from the engine, most often the serpentine belt, so itís inspected for cracks or wear.Integrity Auto Repair of Eugene Oregon

The air conditioning compressor and other components are checked for proper operation by your Integrity Auto Repair service technician. Then comes the leak test. If a leak is detected, often in a hose or connection, itís repaired and the system is retested. Your Integrity Auto Repair technician in Eugene Oregon will also perform a temperature drop test.

If needed, the old refrigerant is evacuated and the system is recharged with clean, fresh refrigerant. A final test insures that the air conditioner is working, and youíre on your way.

How often this should be done at Integrity Auto Repair varies from vehicle to vehicle. Your car or light trucks ownerís manual will have the manufacturerís recommendation and, of course, your considerate Integrity Auto Repair service advisor can tell you. Itís typically every two years.

Letís talk about air conditioning service and repair issues for Western Oregon or more specifically, Eugene OR. Most of us living in cities such as Junction City, Cheshire, Veneta, Walterville, Creswell or Springfield, and any other suburbs in Lane County Oregon donít give our air conditioning a second thought as long as itís making cold air. But itís a complex system that we should think about before it starts blowing hot air.

air conditioning serviceThe refrigerant in the air conditioner contains a special oil that lubricates and cools the A/C parts. This oil is eventually used up. Your air conditioner still makes cold air, but the parts donít have oil to protect them and they wear out faster than they should so itís important to service the air conditioner as recommended by your Integrity Auto Repair service center.

Replacing old refrigerant has another benefit: refrigerant tends to gather moisture and become corrosive. That causes leaks in the system which can be expensive to repair. Fresh refrigerant protects the air conditioning components and keeps the system operating at peak efficiency so it doesnít have to work as hard to keep you cool.

Even with regular service A/C parts can just wear out. Normal wear and tear eventually gets to all moving parts.

Addressing early problems can save on more extensive repairs down the road. For instance, a common failure is the clutch that turns the compressor on and off. If you can take care of a bad A/C clutch when it first starts having problems, you may be able to save the compressor. Wait too long and youíll have to replace both.

Check your ownerís manual or ask your Integrity Auto Repair service advisor in Eugene Oregon for service recommendations. And if youíre hearing strange sounds when your air conditioning turns on, or if it just isnít as cold as it used to be, have Integrity Auto Repair see what itíll take to keep you cool.
