Air Conditioning Maintenance At Mr. Nobody Tire
Most Gaston County and Charlotte North Carolina area car and light
truck owners donít service
their air conditioning until after it fails. Maintaining your car or
truck air conditioning system means that you always have enough
refrigerant to properly do the job. Small leaks in the air
conditioning system allow the refrigerant to escape and the system
canít cool the air as well.
Along with the refrigerant, a special oil circulates in the system.
The oil lubricates air conditioning components, and keeps the seals
resilient. Low refrigerant and lubricating oil means that the air
conditioning parts will wear out prematurely, and we all know that
air conditioning repairs can be costly in Charlotte North Carolina.
conditioning service at Mr. Nobody Tire in Gastonia starts with a visual inspection of the components for signs of
damage or leaks. The compressor is driven by a belt from the engine,
most often the serpentine belt, so itís inspected for cracks or
The air conditioning compressor and other components are checked for
proper operation by your Mr. Nobody Tires service advisor. Then
comes the leak test. If a leak is detected, often in a hose or
connection, itís repaired and the truck system is retested. Your
Mr. Nobody Tire technician will also perform a temperature drop
If needed, the old refrigerant is evacuated and the system is
recharged with clean, fresh refrigerant. A final test insures that
the air conditioner is working, and youíre on your way.
How often this should be done at Mr. Nobody varies from vehicle to
vehicle. Your car or truck ownerís manual will have the manufacturerís
recommendation and, of course, your considerate Mr. Nobody Tire service advisor can tell you. Itís typically every two years..
"Running your vehicles Air Conditioning in the Winter
months can help maintain your A/C system"
Letís talk about air conditioning service and repair issues for
Charlotte North Carolina. Most of us living in cities such as
Gastonia, Dallas, Kings Mountain, Shelby, Belmont, and any other
suburbs of Charlotte donít give our air conditioning a
second thought as long as itís making cold air. But itís a complex
and expensive system that we should think about before it starts
blowing hot air.
The refrigerant in the air conditioner contains a special oil that
lubricates and cools the A/C parts. This oil is eventually used up.
Your air conditioner still makes cold air, but the parts donít have
oil to protect them and they wear out faster than they should so
itís important to service the air conditioner as recommended by your
Gastonia service center.
Replacing old refrigerant has another benefit: refrigerant tends to
gather moisture and become corrosive. That causes leaks in the
system which can be expensive to repair. Fresh refrigerant protects
the air conditioning components and keeps the system operating at
peak efficiency so it doesnít have to work as hard to keep you cool.
Even with regular service A/C parts can just wear out. Normal wear
and tear eventually gets to all moving parts.
Addressing early problems can save on more extensive repairs down
the road. For instance, a common failure is the clutch that turns
the compressor on and off. If you can take care of a bad A/C clutch
when it first starts having problems, you may be able to save the
compressor. Wait too long and youíll have to replace both.
Check your ownerís manual or ask your Gastonia service advisor
at Mr. Nobody Tire for service recommendations. And if youíre
hearing strange sounds when your air conditioning turns on, or if it
just isnít as cold as it used to be, have us give it the once over
and see what itíll take to keep you cool.
|THE BASICS BEHIND AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM
DIAGNOSTIC SERVICES AT MR NOBODY
Your vehicleís air conditioning system cools, purifies, and
circulates air throughout the vehicle to promote a comfortable cabin
environment and prevent driver fatigue. The air conditioning system
operates in a continuous cycle, sending refrigerant through a sealed
system to remove hot air from the cabin compartment. As the
refrigerant flows through the air conditioning system, it is turned
from a hot gas into a liquid, which is then cooled, turned into a
gas again, and vaporized in order to absorb heat from the cabin. At
the end of the cycle, the cool air is blown into the cabin. This
process is made possible by the drive belt, which drives the
compressor, the main component of the air conditioning system. The
compressor works in concert with the condenser, evaporator, and
other parts. If any of these components cease to operate
efficiently, the functionality of the entire system is at risk. When
the performance of your vehicleís air conditioning diminishes, allow
us to identify and solve the issue through an AC diagnostic.
WHY SHOULD YOU HAVE AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM DIAGNOSTIC SERVICES
PERFORMED BY MR NOBODY?
If your air conditioning system creates an unusual amount of noise
while running, produces an abnormal odor, or blows stale air instead
of cool air, then you may need the assistance of our service staff.
During an AC diagnostic, we will inspect the belts for cracks, the
compressor for leaks, the electrical components for connectivity,
and the entire system for low pressure. Our service staff may also
evacuate and recharge your system with refrigerant according to your
manufacturerís specifications. During an air conditioning system
diagnostic, we will use professional leak detection tools to locate
the problem plaguing your system. Watch
for early symptoms for an air conditioning system in need of repair,
and contact us online or call us when you are in need of service.
