No one wants to suffer with a non-working AC system during the middle of the summer, let alone any other time. You want to be able to relax and enjoy the nice cool air coming out of the vents after a long hard day at work, especially when you work in a factory where the temperatures can soar to more than 100 degrees at any given point in time.  While an auto air conditioning system is meant to last for quite some time, there are a number of things that can go wrong with the system without your even realizing it. All it takes is one thing to stop working in your vehicle to leave you without cool air.

 

If the line has a crack in it, your system could end up leaking Freon. When the compressor is without Freon, it prevents the interior of your vehicle from getting cool. At some point along the way, you will have no other option than to replace the compressor. No component inside of your vehicle will last forever, but you can help it last longer than normal with simple maintenance and routine inspections.

Why maintaining your AC System is very important:


Heating and A/C systems may break eventually with usage, hose pipes may clog and drip if not serviced, causing reduced efficiency heating and cooling capabilities. Regular maintenance will keep your AC system operating at peak performance!

 

Indications your A/C system may be having issues:

 

  • If your air conditioning blows only slightly cooler air compared to the exterior air

  • Air that blows in smells damp, musty, or like mildew and mold

  • Your cabin does not warm up in cold weather, or is just a little warmer than outside

  • The defroster takes longer than typical to operate, or does not operate

  • Your heater or A/C only functions when driving, not when idling, or quits blowing when the car is stationary

  • Your heating system blows cold air, or the air conditioning blows warm air

  • Low airflow even at the highest fan setting.

 

A comprehensive evaluation of heating and A/C system includes:

 

  • Examining the internal controls and blower

  • Checking radiator coolant operating temperature, hoses, pressure radiator cap and thermostat

  • Inspecting the compressor belt

  • Adjust belts and tighten hose connections where necessary

  • Inspecting system and seals for leaks or various other damages.

  • A cooling system pressure test

  • Verifying the A/C pressure meets manufacturer specifications

  • Measuring the interior vent air temperature

 

*In order to fully charge the system, certain vehicles might require an evacuation and recharge of the entire system – at an additional cost. Parts extra.

Belts


You not only have to get the belts replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the belts replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Fred’s Wrigleyville Garage today. The mechanics at Fred’s Wrigleyville Garage and auto repair will thoroughly inspect your car's belts; replace all worn belts

A fan belt, also known as a drive belt, is a belt connecting your car's engine to the front mounted accessories. The fan belt rotates the water pump and engine fan, which maintains a cool environment for the engine and its components. Sooner or later, your vehicle's fan belts will dry out and crack. 

 

Hoses


You not only have to get the hoses replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the hoses replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Fred’s Wrigleyville Garage today. The mechanics at Fred’s will thoroughly inspect your car's hoses, replace all worn hoses, transfer coolant, and antifreeze throughout the engine's cooling system (including the radiator).  Sooner or later, your vehicle's hoses will dry out and crack.  Be sure to stop by before then.

Radiators

Radiators are heat exchangers for cooling your car's internal combustion engine. A radiator cools the engine by circulating an engine coolant through the engine block - it then loses the heat to the atmosphere through radiation. A radiator has a set of tubes through which the engine coolant flows. Fins surround these tubes. When the radiator fails, the excess heat produced by the engine could damage the engine components. To prevent this from happening, have your radiator serviced regularly. 

If the breeze from those open windows just isn't cutting it, come by our shop in the Northside of Chicago's Wrigleyville to get an expert opinion on what we can do to fix your auto A/C or heating problems.
