Your vehicle’s ability to keep you cool is an important part of making you and your passengers comfortable.
To keep your car, truck or van’s air conditioning performing at peak levels, we recommend regular service visits. Without proper maintenance, your car’s air conditioning may be underperforming as much as 5% every year. At JP’s Car Care, we don’t want that to happen to any of our customers! The good news is that with proper servicing, your vehicle’s air conditioning unit can be restored to near new conditions.
If your air conditioning unit is broken, you’ll be pleased to know that we can take care of all aspects of AC repair, from the modern computerized components to waste disposal. Here’s a look at some of the most common maintenance and repair issues our customers face with AC servicing and repair
Compressor: This belt-driven device compacts the refrigerant gas, then moves it into the condenser.
Condenser: This dissipates the heat that the compressed gasses release and condenses the them into liquids.
Receiver: Also known as a drier, the receiver stores refrigerant and absorbs moisture from it. It also filters out debris and acids.
Orifice Tube/Expansion Valve: This mechanism controls and regulates the refrigerant flow, while converting the high pressure refrigerant to low pressure refrigerant.
Evaporator: The refrigerant enters from the orifice tube and into the evaporator, where it absorbs heat and changes into vapor. This vapor leaves through the compressor and into the car, cooling it.
