How to Get Your AC Ready for Summer

With summer right around the corner, it’s a great time to make sure your car’s air conditioning is up and working. If you bought a car this past winter, as many of us did, one thing you might’ve forgotten to test is the AC system within the car. If you know New England summers then you know you don’t want to get caught with your AC out. Do you have a German vehicle in need or servicing? We are experts on a wide range of makes and models, including Audi, BMW, VW, and Porsche.

The most common signs that your AC system are in need of repair are:

  • Inconsistent cooling, even at full blast
  • Strange or loud noises coming from the system
  • Inability to turn on the air conditioning
  • AC not as cold as it once was  
  • Strange odors coming from the unit

If your AC is not working at full capacity, it might be overworking your vehicle, taking away energy from other parts of the car, and causing the car to be less fuel efficient. This can become a major issue in the hotter months.

AC Recharge Service

But have no fear. Whether your AC needs a simple recharge or a full repair, we’ve got you covered. We’ll inspect your car’s air conditioning system, including checking for leaks, electrical issues, as well as any issues in the compressor, condenser or evaporator. We may simply recommend recharging your air conditioning system. During our recharge service, we will connect your AC system to a special piece of equipment that will vacuum all the old refrigerant and oil from the system, and then refill it to the proper level with the appropriate refrigerant oil.

Auto AC Repair Service 

While it’s much less common, If it turns out that a more complete repair is in order, we can take care of that as well. As we check for leaks, electrical issues, or issues with the compressor, condenser or evaporator, we may find that certain parts need to be replaced. Our technicians are experienced with AC repairs on BMWs, Audis, VW, and many other German automotive manufacturers.
