Your vehicle’s air conditioning system is designed to turn a hot Indiana afternoon into a cool, comfortable ride. Whether you’re dealing with downtown traffic in Indianapolis or a scenic country road in Northern Indiana, you shouldn’t have to worry if your AC will keep up!
Jiffy Lube of Indiana offers air conditioning and AC recharge services.
How AC Works
Your air conditioner helps remove the heat and humidity from inside your passenger compartment. Powered by a belt, the air conditioning 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, cooled air is blown into your vehicle. This refrigerant returns to the compressor, where the cycle begins once again.
What is an AC Recharge?
Regular preventive maintenance keeps your vehicle’s air conditioning system operating at its peak. An AC Evaluation and Recharge can help improve the cooling efficiency resulting in a more comfortable cabin temperature. It also helps preserve the life of your air conditioning system.
Jiffy Lube of Indiana technicians are certified through an EPA approved training program. First, a certified technician will check for signs of leaks. Next, one of our technicians will:
- Visually inspect the air conditioning compressor drive belt for cracks or damage
- Inspect interior AC cabin filter
- Visually inspect accessible components for leaks or damage
- Check the operation of the air conditioning compressor and other air conditioning components
- Evacuate refrigerant from the system
- Vacuum test the system
- Recharge the air conditioning system using the appropriate refrigerant to the system capacity according to the vehicle manufacturer’s specifications
A little cool breeze on a hot day makes a big difference during drive time! These services are available at most Jiffy Lube locations in the Indianapolis area and Northern Indiana. Visit our Store Locator for specific addresses and phone numbers.
