AC Recharge & Repair Services

Our technicians will first check your AC system for leaks or other damage. If they find none, a car AC recharge service will be performed. The existing refrigerant will be emptied and a fresh refill will be added to manufacturer-specified levels. We will also compare the temperature of the AC blowing into the car to the required specifications for your car. 

If obvious damage or leaks are found, the service staff will discuss this with you to determine how you want to proceed with a repair.

In-Cabin AC Filter Replacement

An AC filter is like any other filter; it wears out and must be replaced to protect the system. If the filter isn’t changed regularly, it can become clogged. This makes the motor associated to the system work much harder and eventually, it will fail, causing further damage to entire system. In the case of your AC system, you might turn it up higher to compensate for the poorer performance. Your gas usage will go up, and so will the money you spend at the gas pump. 

We will check and replace your AC filter if it isn’t working properly.

Sanger Auto AC Repair FAQs

How can I tell when I need auto AC repair?

In many cases, it isn’t hard to tell when your car’s air conditioning (AC) system is acting up. One of the clearest signs indicating a need for AC repair is when your vents only blow warm air, even when the AC system is on.

That isn’t the only way that AC problems can impact your vehicle. Look out for issues such as:

  • Unpleasant smells: When it’s in complete working condition, your car’s AC system also works as a dehumidifier, removing moisture from the air in your cabin and draining it under the vehicle. If that water can’t drain for whatever reason, it could lead to mildew and mold growth, not to mention the smells that come with fungus. On top of that, the presence of mold in your car could cause extra problems if you or a loved one has chronic respiratory issues such as asthma or allergies.
  • Dampness in your vehicle: An improperly draining auto AC system can also create issues related to cabin humidity. Since the water collected by your car’s AC can’t leave the vehicle when you’re having these problems, it has nowhere to go but back into the cabin.
  • Strange noises: A clicking or rattling AC system may just be the result of twigs, leaves, or other debris. On the other hand, these AC issues could point to condenser problems, so you can’t afford to ignore them.

Will my AC compressor wear out?

No component in your vehicle’s AC system plays a more crucial role than the compressor. This part takes care of pressurizing the system and allowing refrigerant to keep flowing, which is essential to keep your AC operating correctly.

However, AC compressors can wear out if ignored for too long. When this happens, your car’s AC temperature may start to rise gradually, making it difficult to spot the change. If this continues for long enough, your system may stop blowing cold air entirely.

When you suspect your AC compressor needs attention (either due to the issues described above or because of loud noises coming from your AC system), it’s best to bring your car to Goodguys Tires & Auto Repair’s Sanger location for a service. That way, you can be sure you’ll receive the compressor repair or replacement services you need.

Can I recharge AC coolant on my own?

Your car’s AC system can become less effective over time, but that’s not always due to problems with your compressor. Sometimes, you may need to recharge your AC system with more refrigerant.

When this happens, DIY coolant recharge kits may be a tempting option, but there are several reasons why we’d encourage Sanger drivers to avoid such products:

  • Not every car needs the same amount of refrigerant. If you overcharge your vehicle with coolant, you’ll only do more damage to the AC system.
  • Recharging your AC system can be trickier than it sounds. Assuming you’re not already highly skilled in this field, it’s best to leave this task to the professionals.
  • Some coolant recharge kits are dangerously poor in quality. The substances contained in these kits could clog essential AC components like your compressor and pump.

Instead of taking these risks, your best bet is to let the team at Goodguys’ Sanger shop get the job done. To save on these services, check out our online coupons.
