Professional AC repair technicians will inspect each component of the system, replace gaskets and seals, refill the freon, and take other steps to keep your AC at its best. Cost of preventative maintenance is far less than the cost to repair many of the most common AC problems.

Why is My AC Not Cooling?

You expect cool, crisp air to hit you when you open the doors to the car, so when warm air comes out, it leaves you perplexed, wondering the cause. There are several reasons for an AC that isn't cooling. One reason is low freon, which is easy to replace by any professional. Another reason is that it may be leaking freon. Perhaps it has nothing at all to do with the freon and is caused by a vacuum leak. You need professional service when this problem occurs since so many culprits can be behind the trouble.
