It might only be the middle of April, but summer will be here before you know it, and if you’re heading out on a road trip or driving to work every day, it’s important that you car’s air conditioner is working properly. At Clarke’s Discount in Aloha, we offer expert auto repair, including cooling services that will help you stay comfortable all season long, no matter how much time you spend behind the wheel.

Why Isn’t the AC Working?

When you turn on your car’s AC, you expect it to blow cool air. When that doesn’t happen, or it alternates between cool and warm air, it’s time to bring it in for repair. Not only will you be uncomfortable while you’re in your car, but you could be causing more damage to your vehicle’s cooling system by running it when it’s not working properly.

There are several reasons why your car’s AC might not be working. The cooling fans might not turn on when you press the AC button on the dashboard, or there could be a leak in your refrigerant line. With a leak, there’s often a simple fix, but if left unattended, you won’t be able to get cool air inside the car.

If there’s a problem with your car’s compressor, such as it fails to engage or it runs constantly, then it’s imperative to have it looked at by a qualified mechanic. With today’s automotive electronics and computer-controlled systems, the problem could lie within an electrical fault that needs to be fixed by a certified auto repair expert.

Why Hire a Mechanic?

There are some auto maintenance tasks that you can likely handle on your own, but AC repair isn’t often one of them. Diving into the dashboard or electrical circuits takes a skilled and experienced hand, and if you try to fix things yourself, you could be left with a worse problem than you had before you started. The team at Clarke’s Discount understands how to work on all types of AC systems, and we can make sure that your cooling system is working how it should. No matter what Asian or domestic make and model you own, we’ll pop open the hood or open the dashboard to find out what’s going on. Above all, we want you to feel confident that you made the right choice in bringing your car to our repair shop.
