Of all the repairs that are considered annoying by most drivers in Albuquerque, Car AC repair and heater maintenance are probably highest on the list. Though it may seem like a small thing to need auto AC repairs, anyone who has had to go without climate control can attest that it can be a serious problem in either extreme heat of summer, or the coldest days of winter.
We feel that driving should be a pleasurable experience, rather than a chore that must be endured. Making sure that your car AC works well is often thought of as the most basic luxury, and we are here to make sure that you do not go without the basics.
There are a few things to keep in mind, especially when it comes to your air conditioning. Repairs should not be required constantly, in fact; if the job was done correctly, your air conditioning should operate well for quite some time.
The fact is, your vehicle AC operates under the principles of a closed system, and as long as that system remains closed, it should work perfectly.
The issues that are most common when it comes to air conditioning are often slow to develop, and sudden to take effect. Below are two of the most common issues drivers will experience with their air conditioning at some point.
- Leak in AC Lines – A leak in the lines is actually an issue that is relatively simple to fix. Once the source of the leak is discovered, the process of replacing the lines is usually quick, simple and affordable; a simple solution for a simple problem. We have the ability to repair or rebuild A/C hoses and lines, saving you time and money
- Compressor Failure – An AC Compressor can actually fail for any number of reasons. Occasionally, the parts will simply wear out due to use. Watch out for squeaking noises from the AC and for decreased performance.
There are a few other components of a vehicle air conditioning system, but these are much less likely to experience damage if the compressor is well taken care of. In fact, as long as attention is paid to the regular maintenance of the air conditioner when it is needed, you can expect to have very few problems with your air conditioner in the long run.
We suggest having your air conditioner inspected once yearly to keep abreast of any issues that may arise in the near future. By keeping a sharp eye on the health of your air conditioning system, you can save a great deal of money and keep full use of your vehicles climate control.
