A/C and Heating Repair

When temperatures rise, there’s nothing more refreshing than getting into a cool, air-conditioned car. However, auto A/C and heating systems can wear over time with use, turning cold air into hot air. Jensen Tire & Auto can perform routine auto A/C maintenance and heating system repairs, which will keep your car comfortable for you and your passengers.

What auto A/C and heating system does: Auto heating and A/C systems function to keep your car cabin warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The auto A/C system also offers a double function of working your defrost in the winter. Heating systems are comprised of a heater core (which acts like a little radiator behind the dash), fan, and hoses, which draw the heat from the engine to the core. Auto A/C systems operate similarly, by delivering coolant to the fan to blow cold air into the cabin.

Why auto A/C & heating system repair service is important: Heating and A/C systems can wear out over time with use. Hoses can easily stop up and leak if not serviced, leading to poor efficiency or a lack of cooling and heating. Correct routine maintenance can keep your automobile comfortable for you and your passengers.

The best ways to tell if your heating and A/C systems are having problems:

  • If your A/C blows just a little cooler than the air outside
  • Air that blows in smells moist, musty or like mildew
  • Your cabin does not heat up in cold weather or is mildly warmer than outside temps
  • The defroster takes longer than normal to function, blows in filthy air, or doesn’t operate
  • Your heater or A/C only operates when driving, not when idling or stops blowing when the vehicle isn’t moving
  • Your heating unit blows chilly air or the air conditioning blows warm
  • Your vents do not put out much air at the highest setting

An in-depth inspection of heating and A/C systems includes:

  • Checking the interior and blower
  • Checking radiator coolant level, hoses, pressure cap and thermostat
  • Screening the compressor belt
  • Examining for cracks or additional damages
  • A cooling system pressure examination
  • Contrasting the air conditioning pressure to specifications
  • Examining the air conditioning system for refrigerant leaks
  • Checking the interior vent air temperature
