Air Conditioning Repair and Service

    Service Overview

    There’s nothing more frustrating than climbing into your car on a hot day, only to find that your air conditioning system is blasting hot air from the vents. When you don’t keep your AC system properly maintained, it has to work harder to cool your vehicle. This leads to wear and tear as well as increased repair costs.

    The expert technicians at Park Muffler are on hand to offer you air conditioning service and repair so you can enjoy a drive on those hot summer days without overheating.

    How Your Vehicle’s AC System Works

    You may be surprised to learn that your vehicle’s air conditioning system doesn’t technically create cold air. What is actually does is remove heat and moisture out of the air that’s already in your vehicle. The air conditioning system uses a refrigerant, which travels through the condenser. The condenser is like a radiator, allowing the liquid refrigerant to come in contact with the fresh air. The refrigerant absorbs heat from the air, allowing fresh, cool air to blow through the vents and cool your vehicle.

    While you may feel that summer months are the only time to be concerned about the state of your vehicle’s air conditioning system, it comes in handy in the winter months too.
    Since the AC system dries the air in your vehicle by removing moisture, it can be used to effectively and quickly defrost your windows in the winter time.

    Signs Your Air Conditioning System Needs Repair

    While it is recommended that you keep your vehicle’s air conditioning system regularly maintained, it’s important to know the signs that it’s time for a repair.

    If your AC system is not working properly, you may notice the following:

    • Hot air blowing even when the system is set to cool
    • Inconsistent temperature control
    • Failure to cool the vehicle, even when running
    • Strange noises
    • Less air blowing through the vents than usual
    • Stale, moldy or damp smells coming from the vents

    If you notice any of these issues, it’s time to bring your vehicle in for an inspection.

    Diagnosing the Issue

    When you bring your vehicle to our highly-trained technicians at Park Mufflers, we will use our knowledge and expertise to pinpoint exactly where the issues with the AC system lie. More often than not, your vehicle is low on refrigerant or needs an AC recharge on the system. This is the first issue we will look for in hopes that the repair is quick and easy.

    However, sometimes air conditioning problems are more complex. To find and diagnose the issue, we may recharge the system and use a UV dye to detect any leaks. If any are found, they will be patched and repaired. If the issue is not a leak, we may inspect your AC compressor clutch to see whether or not it is engaging, check the compressor belt to see if it is loose, or check to see if your AC condenser needs to be cleaned.

    Sometimes, the problem doesn’t necessarily reside within the system. The air may be cool, but the flow is weak or inconsistent. In this case, we’ll check other areas such as the cabin filter, the blower motor, or the blend door.

    Recharging the AC System

    Some people may be compelled to recharge their air conditioner at home with a kit to save on repairs costs. However, this should be done with extreme caution, as it may do more harm than good. Recharge kits found in stores may use a propane gas that is not compatible with the refrigerant your air conditioning system requires. Using it can cause further damage and complications. As the kits claim to fill small leaks, they can actually fill and plug essential areas of the A/C system, such as various valves.

    Ultimately, these at-home repairs can cost more money than you would have paid to have a professional technician do the work. If you’re considering using a kit, we highly recommend speaking to a professional first!

    What Our Customers Say

    We got the catalytic converter stolen and we went to this place. The owner sat with us and explained, the current situation with the catalytic converters and the options we had. They found the parts and repaired the car in the same day. They put a cage underneath the catalytic converter to protect it better. We were invited into the shop and we saw the work they did. The owner showed us around, introduced us to the team. In spite of the hard time we were going through we felt they treated us like family and this is something we appreciate. We highly recommend this place

    After my wife's engine light went on, she drove to the nearest mechanic center. Nervous about her car's condition and about being a newcomer to Park Muffler, her fears were quickly dissipated by the courteous treatment and friendly-informative manner of the staff. She was put more at ease at the very professional manner in which they proceeded to do diagnostics, identify and detail the problem along with giving a very reasonable cost-estimate of repairs. What made her experience even more positive was the extent they went to look after the problem, taking more time and extensive measures to get it exactly right, but while honoring the original estimated price, even though much more time and effort was required than initially anticipated. At the end, my wife's car was running perfectly again for a real bargain given all the work that went into it. It is very refreshing to find such a combination of professionalism and honor in dealing with a mechanic, but that is exactly what we found with Park Muffler. We highly recommend them and would give them more than 5 stars if we were able to.
