AC Repair & Auto repair in Chico, CA.

Tedious Repairs Answer:
Car and truck air conditioning system uses freon to create cold air. The most common reasons Chico drivers lose their cold air have to do with the refrigerant leak somewhere in the system. We offer recharge & diagnosis combo on your vehicles A/C starting at $203.

The most common problem is not enough freon. Freon is the gas that your car’s ac system uses, and very small holes in a hose, seal or a leaking compressor can allow a leak . These type of A/C leaks can run your system low on freon and stop cold air from blowing our yours vehicles vents. AC recharges are needed when leaks are found in the system. Ideally you fix these leaks before the ac recharge is performed.

Clogged AC Condenser
Our mechanic found a plug AC condenser full off bugs. The AC condenser can not provide maximum cooling, resulting in poor ac performance. Customer stated that the ac was not very cold like it used to be.

Another problem for Chico auto owners is AC contamination. Over time the inside of the rubber hoses can deteriorate, and small chunks of rubber can clog up filters and other parts of the vehicle A/C system. This prevents proper circulation of the freon. This could cause A/C components to brake or stop working properly. The first step for A/C repair in Chico, is to get a A/C diagnosis and system inspection, which will find leaks and faulty parts. Federal law requires an inspection before adding A/C freon into vehicles. Some states do not allow topping off a leaking system.

Once A/C repairs are made, freon can be added. At the same time, special oil is added to the system. This oil cools and lubricates various components as it circulates along with the refrigerant. If you have a refrigerant leak, you also have an oil leak – and it’s important that both be replenished for proper function and protection of your vehicle’s A/C system.

Often overlooked by Chico drivers is the fact that a worn drive belt (which drives the A/C compressor) that leads to belt slippage which may add additional strain on the vehicles compressor. Replacing your drive belt and belt tensioner here at Tedious Repairs can extend the life of your A/C compressor and other belt driven accessories.

  1. I’m glad you talked about how chunks of rubber can clog up filters to the AC system. My AC in my car isn’t blowing cold air anymore and it’s difficult driving in the summer. I’ll have to take my car into a shop so they can fix my AC in my car.

  2. 7 great tips! people can learn a lot of new things and through the knowledge they have acquired, they can maintain their HVAC person very well.
    Today virtually every home and business in developed parts of the world has air conditioning, but few people know how to care for it properly. Air conditioning can mean the difference between comfort and excessive heat. However, if you don’t take steps to maintain the system properly, you will find yourself replacing it much sooner than you should. Your cooling bills will also be much higher because the system won’t run as efficiently as it could.
