Air Conditioning Leaks
Leaks aren’t the only potential culprit. Basically put, you might have to get repairs to your car’s air conditioning system when its electrical or mechanical components are the ones that break down. These can include the pulleys, belts, condensers, electric motors, compressors, and evaporator coils. Like anything else mechanical or electrical, they can get worn down over time and then break.
The Air Conditioner Evaporator
As a general rule of thumb, it’s just not worth it to have an evaporator coil repaired. The costs involved with having one reconditioned is nearly always more than what it costs to just replace it with a new one. Besides, the new one is going to last longer anyway.
The Air Conditioner Compressor
Depending on what the specific issue is, a compressor is something that can get repaired. If it’s just an issue with the compressor clutch, then it can occasionally get replaced. This is happening less frequently considering how a growing number of manufacturers are creating compressors without serviceable clutches. Given that, the compressor replaced most of the time. These aren’t exactly cheap. When you include the labor charges, you can expect to spend as little as $100 to as much as $1000.
Air Conditioner Belts And Pulleys
You might now what pulleys and belts are. Your engine likely has several of them in use. When the engine is in operation, it’s not just driving your wheels, but also other components like power steering or the alternator. This is why it is important to get an auto repair professional on your car sooner than later. Call us and let’s schedule a tune-up.
