Auto AC Repair
Arizona is a pretty awful place to be without a solid auto Air Conditioning system for your car. At Johnstons, we want to keep you cool, comfortable & safe all year long.
Lots of people are not aware that their auto air conditioning needs annual service. Frequently, we ignore our auto AC and cooling system until its past the point of no return. Air conditioning issues, if uncovered early, can be repaired before causing harm to other parts of the system. Let us deal with your Air Conditioning maintenance and youll be riding comfortably all year.
If your Vehicle A/C feels like it isn't running as cold as you would like, it could mean you need a freon recharge. Freon is like the bloodstream of the AC, and the refrigerant which keeps your cabin cool. The best time to get your coolant levels right is just before the heat really kicks in. No one wants to deal with the Arizona summer heat.
The refrigerant system also requires a lubricant to keep your A/C's compressor working correctly. if the levels are too low, even for a short time, it can be extremely damaging to the internal components of the compressor. Most cars come equipped with a low pressure switch that turns the compressor on & off and can prevent compressor damage. In the event your A/C compressor breaks, it may send bits of metal into the remaining components of your car’s A/C system. This can require multiple parts and extensive work to fully repair.
Another service we provide is the R12 to R134 Freon conversion kit. We will happily install the parts which let your Air Conditioning run on the more environmentally friendly R134 Freon Refrigerant.
