Five Signs Your Car AC Needs To Be Serviced
- Your car air conditioning blows only slightly cooler than the outside air.
- Your car's air conditioner blows air that smells like mildew and mold.
- Your A/C only works while driving.
- You have low airflow even at the highest fan setting.
- Water condensing or dripping on your foot while driving.
Don't wait! If your car's A/C is working at reduced efficiency, it's worth a visit to A & B Automotive Inc.. Taking care of regular maintenance now can help you avoid more expensive AC repair costs down the road. Sometimes fixing a broken air conditioner is as simple and cost effective as adding new coolant.

Repair Your Car's AC Compressor
Let A & B Automotive Inc. Repair Your Car's AC Compressor
The cool air in your car is produced primarily by the compressor. The four main functions that your vehicle's compressor carries out include pressurizing the refrigerant to cool cabin air, monitoring and controlling temperature output, sensing temperature changes inside and outside the vehicle, and moving air to your car's AC condenser.

Discover the Best AC Condenser Repair in Matthews
Your vehicle's A/C condenser is usually located in the front of the radiator. When your AC compressor is pressurizing the refrigerant flows to the condenser to reduce the temperature and pressure. The condenser is a vital component in keeping your car's cabin temperature cool. It moves the cooled liquid refrigerant to the receiver/dryer or accumulator.
Repair Your Car's AC Evaporator
Repair or Replace Your Car's AC Evaporator at A & B Automotive Inc. in Matthews
Located just behind the dashboard, your car evaporator is in charge of cooling air and removing moisture before it is blown into the cabin of your car or truck.
Replace Your Car's AC Thermal Expansion Valve or Orifice Tube
Replace Your Thermal Expansion Valve or Orifice Tube at A & B Automotive Inc.
The Thermal Expansion Valve or Orifice Tube monitors the amount of pressure and temperature of your A/C system to calculate the precise amount of refrigerant that can safely go into the evaporator. Uneven pressure can allow unwanted moisture to accumulate in a car or truck's AC system.
Freon Recharging Questions and Answers
Q: How often should Freon be changed?A: Never, at least not in the way you think of your oil being changed. Your car's AC system is a sealed unit. No new freon needs to be added unless there's a refrigerant leak. Over time as your vehicle ages small cracks may form in your AC system parts such as the compressor, condenser, evaporator, receiver-dryer, expansion tube and connecting hoses allowing freon to escape. If this occurs, you need to replace the failing part and have your freon recharged.
Q: How long should a Freon recharge last?A: If your car's AC system was recently repaired and required a freon recharge it should not need to be replaced again. Your AC system is a closed or sealed system that does not allow freon to escape. Freon is not like gasoline; it does not get depleted. If freon is escaping after your car's AC system has been repaired, then additional work may need to be done to find the leak.
Replacement of rear leaf springs, shocks and rebuild a/c. Replaced compressor and other needed parts with recharging. All work preformed on time and priced quite reasonably I thought. Friendly and professional staff. Also replaced differential oil and conditioner. Only got to drive it about a mile so far, had to drop it off for seat reupholster at Peterson's Auto Trim and the noise I was noticing seems to be gone or at least quieter. We will see soon. I highly recommend this shop. Don't let the full parking lot dissuade you from going there. They apparently have quite a loyal customer base.William Horne
5 STAR SERVICE!!!
I recently had my Odyssey's timing belt replaced at A & B garage, and I couldn't be happier with the service I received. From the moment I walked in, Rachel went above and beyond to ensure a smooth and pleasant experience. She even took the time to help me check the previous timing belt service guarantee, which was incredibly helpful. The entire team at the garage was professional, and the work on my car was done efficiently and with great attention to detail. I highly recommend this garage for their outstanding service and a special shout-out to Rachel for her exceptional customer care.
