The expert technicians at Beachside Tire & Auto Repair will perform a full test so we can accurately fix any problems you’re dealing with. Make your summer much more pleasant and a lot more fun with a cool and comfortable ride.

When to Check the A/C

If you think the A/C in your car is on the fritz, it’s probably presenting a number of signs. First, are you noticing strange noises whenever you turn it on? Or, are there odd smells coming from the vents? Those are two common problems that indicate you need repair of some kind. The most common issue people experience is when their A/C system doesn’t come on at all, or the airflow is not as strong as it should be.

Air Conditioning Evaluation

When you bring your vehicle to us, we’ll perform a full air conditioning system check. We’ll examine the internal controls and blower to make sure the electrical system is working correctly. We’ll also check your radiator coolant operating temperature and all hoses. We will look closely at the pressure radiator cap and thermostat for any visible issues. Another important element is the compressor belt and compressor, which are the heart of your vehicle’s air conditioning system. This is what pumps and moves the refrigerant throughout the passenger cabin.

In addition to these checks, we will also look for any leaks at the seals or within the system. We will perform a full cooling system pressure test and ensure that your air conditioning pressure meets the manufacturer’s recommended specifications. An examination of the interior vent air temperature will help us diagnose the problem. With all of these checks, we can obtain a clearer picture of what is wrong and make recommendations to fix it so you can enjoy a cool, comfortable ride all summer long.
