Five Signs Your Car AC Needs To Be Serviced?

  • Your car air conditioning blows only slightly cooler than the outside air.
  • Your car's air conditioner blows air that smells like mildew and mold.
  • Your A/C only works while driving.
  • You have low airflow even at the highest fan setting.
  • Water condensing or dripping on your foot while driving.

Don't wait! If your car's A/C is working at reduced efficiency, it's worth a visit to Fitzgerald's Automotive. Taking care of regular maintenance now can help you avoid more expensive AC repair costs down the road. Sometimes fixing a broken air conditioner is as simple and cost effective as adding new coolant.

Most truck and car air conditioning systems break eventually with usage. Hoses that feed the AC unit may crack, clog or drip if not serviced. Let us service your car or truck and keep your cooling system performing at its peak. Call us at (980) 222-7322 to learn more about how we can get your air conditioning running again!

Let Fitzgerald's Automotive Repair Your Car's AC Compressor

The cool air in your car is produced primarily by the compressor. The four main functions that your vehicle's compressor carries out include pressurizing the refrigerant to cool cabin air, monitoring and controlling temperature output, sensing temperature changes inside and outside the vehicle, and moving air to your car's AC condenser.

Your vehicle's A/C condenser is usually located in the front of the radiator. When your AC compressor is pressurizing the refrigerant flows to the condenser to reduce the temperature and pressure. The condenser is a vital component in keeping your car's cabin temperature cool. It moves the cooled liquid refrigerant to the receiver/dryer or accumulator.
