Picture your AC system like a refrigerator, it is a closed, pressurized system of pipes that contains a freon gas that is odorless, colorless, and leaves no residue. Now picture driving a refrigerator down the street, exposed to all of natures elements- sand, salt, water, rocks, etc. Most likely, before too long, your AC system will get a leak.
Once you have a leak in your AC system, it loses all pressure, and all the freon that keeps the air cold leaks out. Thats when your vents start blowing warm air...and it's time to call the Auto Clinic!
Auto Clinic offers NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY for an AC recharge. The first step in diagnosing your leak is to find out where the leak is coming from. In the process of recharging your AC, we'll put a dye in the freon that will mark where your leak is located.
AN AC RECHARGE DOES NOT GUARANTEE YOUR AC IS FIXED. Once you have a recharge, you must drive your car until your AC starts blowing warm air again, bring it back to us and we'll check to see where your system is leaking. At that point, we will be able to make an accurate diagnosis.
An AC recharge can last you 2 years or 2 days, it all depends on how large a leak you have. Having you AC recharged for the first time is simply the first step to diagnosing where your leak is coming from.
