Make sure to have your air conditioning charged and repaired before the hot weather arrives. If your A/C unit is blowing hot air, or little to no air thenit's time to have a professional step in. At Shawnee Service Center, technicians can keep your air conditioner productive and efficient for when you really need to cool down.
Shawnee mechanics will visually inspect your hoses, lines, and seals to make sure there are no leaks before going ahead with costly repairs. They'll check temperature readings and inspect your drive belt for damage or cracks. The same air conditioning belt is used for many of your car's functions, so if it's broken you could experience a lot more mechanical problems than a hot and sweaty drive.
Technicians must also have a look at the compressor and take readings to see if that's the offending part that's causing the system to malfunction. Adding or getting rid of refrigerant can make a tremendous difference in the performance of your air conditioner, and this just like any servicing of the compressor, evaporator, or condenser is something only professionals are equipped to do.
While all major servicing should be left to the professionals, air conditioning repair is perhaps the most dangerous repair an amateur or professional could attempt. The refrigerant used in cars is Freon, usually two types of it which are invisible and colorless in their vapor form. Breathing in these vapors or exposing yourself to them could cause irritation of the eyes, nose and throat, and possibly even unconsciousness if not in a properly ventilated area.
