What Does A/C Servicing Involve?
When you bring your Toyota vehicle in for A/C servicing repair, a certified professional will perform several tests to isolate any issues your A/C may be having. Tests will be performed to check your A/C pressure and the temperature of the air blown out. If there are no mechanical issues with the A/C, the next step is to check for leaks and perform any needed patching or repairs.
Why Do A/C Systems Need Repairs?
Your Toyota model's air conditioner system is made up of several parts that can need repair and replacement for many reasons. These parts include various belts, hoses, your model’s compressor, and refrigerant for cooling purposes. Over time parts wear out, hoses need replacing, valves loosen, and refrigerant can need refilling. If your Toyota does need refrigerant, you should always take it to a professional in Tunnel Hill instead of trying to do it yourself. An expert will know exactly how much refrigerant to add and address any underlying repair needs such as a leaking valve.
How Often Should Your Toyota’s A/C Be Recharged?
In general, there is no set time frame for A/C recharging, and most maintenance or repairs are based on need. When your A/C is having issues, it rarely breaks all at once as leaks tend to cause refrigerant to slowly be lost, and your A/C effectiveness to reduce over time. If you find yourself having to turn your A/C higher and higher when driving, you may have a leak somewhere in your Toyota’s A/C system.
