- Unpleasant mildew and mold odors emanate from your AC vents.
- The AC functions only while the vehicle is in motion.

Repair Your Car's AC Compressor
Let Steve & Stacy's Servicenter Repair Your Car's AC Compressor
The cool air in your car is produced primarily by the compressor. The four main functions that your vehicle's compressor carries out include pressurizing the refrigerant to cool cabin air, monitoring and controlling temperature output, sensing temperature changes inside and outside the vehicle, and moving air to your car's AC condenser.

Discover the Best AC Condenser Repair in Charleston
Your vehicle's A/C condenser is usually located in the front of the radiator. When your AC compressor is pressurizing the refrigerant flows to the condenser to reduce the temperature and pressure. The condenser is a vital component in keeping your car's cabin temperature cool. It moves the cooled liquid refrigerant to the receiver/dryer or accumulator.
Repair Your Car's AC Evaporator

The Thermal Expansion Valve or Orifice Tube monitors the amount of pressure and temperature of your A/C system to calculate the precise amount of refrigerant that can safely go into the evaporator. Uneven pressure can allow unwanted moisture to accumulate in a car or truck's AC system.
Freon Recharging Questions and Answers
How often should Freon be changed?Never, at least not in the way you think of your oil being changed. Your car's AC system is a sealed unit. No new freon needs to be added unless there's a refrigerant leak. Over time as your vehicle ages small cracks may form in your AC system parts such as the compressor, condenser, evaporator, receiver-dryer, expansion tube and connecting hoses allowing freon to escape. If this occurs, you need to replace the failing part and have your freon recharged.
How long should a Freon recharge last?If your car's AC system was recently repaired and required a freon recharge it should not need to be replaced again. Your AC system is a closed or sealed system that does not allow freon to escape. Freon is not like gasoline; it does not get depleted. If freon is escaping after your car's AC system has been repaired, then additional work may need to be done to find the leak.
