Vehicle A/C – Staying Cool in Sonoma and Beyond
Beautiful Sonoma county has some high temperatures. During the warm summer months, it becomes important to ensure your vehicle’s air conditioning system is performing well in order to keep you, your children, and pets cool while on the road.
Often times, your car’s air conditioning system will begin working at inefficient levels, resulting in rapid component attrition rates and not producing the cool air you desire. Sometimes, in rural areas, small animals might also shelter-in-place. These critters can cause problems. We service or repair the following automotive A/C system components:
- Cooling Fan
- Expansion Valve
- Blower Fan
- Supply & Return Lines
Automotive A/C systems create cool air for distribution inside your vehicle. Exchanging heat between two separate areas keeps the heat outside and the cool inside. Each of these areas has a heat exchanging device, similar in appearance to your car’s radiator. A heat exchanger is located at the front of your vehicle, typically in front of the radiator, and is known as an air conditioning condenser. Another heat exchanger is located on the inside of your vehicle’s interior, and is known as an air conditioning evaporator. The air conditioning compressor essentially compresses gas contained within the system (compressed gas retains heat), sending it to condenser at the front of your vehicle where heat dissipation is assisted by the condenser fan.
