Car air conditioning systems promote a comfortable cabin interior and help prevent driver fatigue. During normal vehicle operation, a substantial amount of heat is created by the engine and exterior contributors like the road and sun. Your vehicle’s AC system is responsible for cooling, purifying, and circulating air.
Leaking refrigerant can damage your vehicle's evaporator and compressor. Getting a car air conditioner service at the first sign of trouble will save you both money and time
If you've noticed a lack of cooling output by your car's A/C, but components like the blower motor appear to be operating correctly, a likely cause is a refrigerant leak in the system. R22 or R134a refrigerant itself never degrades if it's in a sealed, pressurized system, so if an A/C system is low on refrigerant, there is almost certainly a leak in hose, connection fitting or A/C system component. Because refrigerant is highly damaging to the ozone layer, it's a car owner's environmental responsibility to diagnose and repair a refrigerant leak as soon as possible

Car Air Conditioning Repair Inspection
Vehicle air conditioning repair can include a variety of tasks ranging from small to large-scale. Everything from an annual inspection or performance check to diagnosis and replacement of system components can be completed at your local Meineke shop by a qualified technician. Regular inspections help ensure cooling efficiency and identify possible refrigerant leaks. Additional services your vehicle might need include:
- System fan level check
