What are the components of your AC System?

AC Compressor

This is the heart of your vehicle’s air conditioning system as it is the pumping force that moves the refrigerant all over it. To keep the compressor performing optimally, it needs to be serviced periodically. This also ensures that your car’s ac system always has the right amount of refrigerant.

AC Condenser

The AC condenser eliminates heat from your vehicles AC system. You could call it the opposite of the compressor because it removes hot air while the compressor pumps cold air (OK, not quite opposites but you get where I’m going). Whenever you bring your vehicle in for an AC system service, we make sure to check for any damage, leaks or clogs in your condenser as they’re very vulnerable to rock damage

Expansion Device

This regulates the flow of the refrigerant in your car’s AC system and may need to be changed whenever your AC requires major repairs.


The dryer helps in absorbing any excess moisture and refrigerant in the Ac and will also need to be changed whenever your vehicle’s ac requires major repairs
