Heating & Cooling Repair For Cars and Trucks

Car AC Repair For Drivers In The Worth County Area

In some instances when your car's air conditioning (AC) begins to lose its cooling power or fails to blow cool air, it may be time for a simple freon recharge. For drivers in the Worth County area recharging a vehicle's freon is a fast and inexpensive repair at Knudtson Automotive Services. Recharge your freon today and beat the summer heat. Leaking freon may also be caused by a cracked hose or seal. It is occasionally an indicator that a more significant repair is needed.

1234YF Vehicle AC Refrigerant

Knudtson Automotive Services is ready to recharge your car, truck, or jeep's 1234 YF freon. All vehicle AC systems manufactured after 2021 rely on 1234 YF freon as the green solution for keeping your cars cabin cool.

Come to Knudtson Automotive Services to Replace Your Car's Receiver and Dryer or Accumulator

Your car's compressor is designed to take in air only. Moisture infiltration is an issue for vehicles in the Worth County area. Water getting into the compressor is a common cause for compressor failure. Your car or truck has either a receiver and dryer or an accumulator to separate air from water to keep the compressor dry.

  • A receiver and dryer are present in vehicles that have a thermal expansion valve.
  • An accumulator is present in a vehicle with an orifice tube. The accumulator is responsible for monitoring and controlling the amount of refrigerant that goes into the evaporator.

The receiver and dryer or accumulator also removes moisture using a desiccant, which is a small, bead-filled packet, and special filters that protect the A/C system from moisture and are easy to replace.

Discover the Best AC Condenser Repair in the Worth County area

For drivers in the Worth County area, Knudtson Automotive Services is the best place for car and truck AC repair. Knudtson Automotive Services knows vehicle AC systems inside and out. Your vehicle's AC 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.

Let Knudtson Automotive Services Repair Your Car's AC Compressor

At Knudtson Automotive Services our pro auto repair technicians understand new state of the art AC compressors. The cool air in your car is produced primarily by the compressor. Your vehicle's compressor has four main functions including 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.
