Have you been searching for “car AC repairing services near me”?
Why not come to us - Dack Motor Group for quality air conditioning service Lincoln. Our experts are specially trained to service AC units in almost every car make and model. Our customers rely on us for quick and efficient automobile services with minimum turnaround time.
The automotive air conditioning units have predominantly used three different types of refrigerants, i.e.
Since the implementation of European directive 2006/40/EC in 2001, new car AC units must use coolants with Global Warming Potential (GWP) lower than 150. R134a (found in cars manufactured before 2017) has a GWP of 1400 and will be banned from 2022 according to a new directive.
The new R1234YF breaks down quicker than its predecessors in the upper atmosphere, reducing its GWP to just 4! Most car manufacturers have already made the switch to this new AC gas, and we have upgraded our workstation to cater to the same.
The manufacturer-recommended life span of car air conditioning gas is usually 1-2 years, depending on the parts used in the AC unit and how often the car is taken on short trips.
However, this period can significantly reduce based on various factors such as mould growth, accidents, wear and tear, etc.
There are specific symptoms that you need to look out for.
One of the first symptoms of a faulty car air conditioner is inefficient cooling during summers. A damaged compressor will cool the car cabin in a non-uniform manner, leading to high cabin temperatures.
The AC unit’s compressor is powered by the car engine using a belt, which engages the compressor when you switch on the AC. If you hear unusual squealing or grinding sounds while the AC is running, you need to drive down to us at once for car AC servicing.
When the car is not driven for a long time, mould, bacteria, and fungi build up in the evaporator, leading to rotten egg or vinegar-like odour in the car interiors. The spores may sometimes be released into the cabin through the AC vents, causing health complications.
Apart from air conditioning refill, our comprehensive air conditioning service Lincoln encompasses a thorough cleaning of the air filter, cooling coil, condenser, and vents to prevent any obstruction. Our air conditioning service Lincoln technicians also make sure to check the entire AC unit for any leak and wear and perform the necessary repairs.
