Auto AC Repair Tampa FL

Vehicle AC units are most often made up of three pieces – a compressor, the condenser, and an evaporator. The compressor, which is part of your vehicle’s engine, pressurizes and heats up the refrigerant gas before it makes its way to the car’s condenser. The condenser expels the heat from the refrigerant gas and cools it down into a high-pressure liquid state. As the gas cools, the evaporator works with an internal fan to help heat or cool the inside of your car. Compressor troubles will most likely lead to AC repair, but breakdowns with the fan, filter trouble, or even just a recharge of coolant can mean you need to bring your car in for AC repair. If your AC isn’t working, don’t sweat it; just bring it into RI Automotive in Tampa, FL.

So when is it time to bring your car in for AC service? Most people would assume it’s when the AC simply stops working, but this isn’t the typical first symptom of AC problems. Usually, before an AC completely stops working, it will simply fail to blow as cold as it did when you drove it off the lot. This subtle change in your AC’s effectiveness is a sure sign you need AC service. Make an appointment with RI Automotive in Tampa, FL, before your AC stops working completely. In this heat? You don’t want that to happen. If your car isn’t as cool as it once, bring it into RI Automotive.
