Have you had your A/C inspected?
Summer is right around the corner and in the Valley there is no hiding from the heat. Whether or not you’re A/C is blowing hot air it would be good to get your A/C inspected. AT RAD Auto Repair we offer an A/C check for $34.99 in which we visually inspect hoses, lines, seals and other components for leaks, preform a pressure line test, check temperature readings, test that your compressor is operating properly and inspect the drive belt for cracks or damage.
Depending on the results of the diagnosis, the system is then serviced only as required to ensure proper operation, which might include:
- Evacuate refrigerant from the system
- Recharge the system using the appropriate refrigerant to the exact system capacity according to the vehicle manufacturer’s specifications
- Perform any necessary service on compressor, evaporator, condenser, and electrical controls
- Recheck the system to ensure proper operation
If an EVAC and RE-Charge is required this will usually cost around $116-$120. If a compressor is in order this could set you back around $1000. This is why it is important to get it inspected now and keep everything operating as well as it should be.
While your vehicle is at the shop, a RAD technician can also perform a 30-point multi-point inspection. Your car, truck or SUV will get a thorough going-over to make sure all of the major systems are in good working order.
