Worried your vehicle’s A/C won’t keep up this summer? Be sure it’s ready to operate at peak! Now’s the time to get your air conditioning system checked and refill any needed refrigerant.
Why is Recharging Your A/C Important?
An A/C recharge can extend the life of your air conditioning system. By improving your cooling efficiency, you’ll benefit from a cooler interior cabin temperature. You also won’t have to worry that your A/C will give out on you during the hottest months of summer.
What is Included in an A/C Recharge?
Jiffy Lube of Indiana technicians are specially certified through an EPA approved training program to perform a recharge to your air conditioning operating system. First, a certified technician will check for any sign of leaks. Next, one of our technicians will:
– Visually evaluate the AC compressor drive belt for cracks or damage
– Inspect interior AC cabin filter
– Check the operation of the AC compressor and other AC components
– Visually inspect accessible components for leaks or damage
– Evacuate refrigerant from the system
– Vacuum test the system
– Recharge the AC system using the appropriate refrigerant to the system capacity according to the vehicle manufacturer’s specifications
How Your A/C Works
Your vehicle air conditioner works to remove the humidity and heat from inside your passenger compartment. Powered by a belt, the A/C compressor compresses the refrigerant to pressurize it and pump it through the system. The refrigerant is pushed through a valve where pressure and temperature are reduced. The now-cool refrigerant travels through the evaporator in the passenger compartment. As a result, cool air is blown into your vehicle. This refrigerant returns to the compressor, where the cycle begins once again.
