Professional AC Repair You Can Count OnA/C Maintenance and Repair

When your heater or AC isn’t working as well as you’d expect, it could mean that it’s due for some professional repair work. If you suspect that there’s anything wrong with your heating or cooling system, it’s always better to bring it in for a checkup sooner rather than later. The experts at Ravenswood can quickly identify your car’s issues and get started on repairs before it becomes a massive and costly affair.

Signs that your AC requires professional assistance:

  • Weak air flow
    Cranking up your fan only to get a very gentle breeze (or nothing at all) could be caused by a variety of problems: buildup of dirt or mold, loose hoses, broken fans, or blown seals. If you’re unable to identify the issue, our experts are here to help.
  • Barely cold or warm air
    Air that is flowing but isn’t cold can also have several possible causes: low refrigerant, clogged tubes and hoses, or broken/damaged parts such as the compressor, blower motor, condenser, or evaporator.
  • Strange smells from the vents
    Strange smells coming from your interior vents may indicate mold growth, dirty filters, or burnt wirings in your system. Burnt wires should be quickly replaced and regular cleaning of your filters will prevent adverse effects on your health and fuel consumption.
  • Additional noises from the vents
    If turning on your AC generates a rattling noise, it could mean that your fan belt or condenser is broken, or there is some debris caught in the fan. This issue should be looked at as soon as possible to prevent bigger problems later.
  • Leaking refrigerant or oil
    If your refrigerant or oil is leaking, it’s time to bring it in immediately. Leaks occur from loose seals and hoses in your system, which stops your AC from working properly and allows moisture to damage critical parts of your system.

Tips for Maintaining Your AC

Working on a car's AC system is an intensive and expensive process. Reduce the number of times you need to replace your AC components by taking preventative measures against critical system failures.

  • Bring your car in for a thorough checkup and AC recharge every year
  • If you suspect anything is wrong, bring your car in right away - the sooner, the better
  • If a professional suggests replacing multiple parts, do so. Several AC parts have about the same lifespan as each other, so it’s a lot more efficient to replace them at the same time

When it comes to maintaining your AC, prevention is always better than repair. Don’t hesitate to bring your car in just for an inspection - it may save you a lot of time and money down the road!
