A/C Evacuation and Recharge

A/C Evacuation and Recharge

A vehicle without cool air conditioning can be a sweaty and uncomfortable ride. A properly working A/C keeps you and everyone else in the vehicle comfortable and cool all the way to your destination.

WHAT WE DO:

Jiffy Lube® visually inspects the air conditioning compressor drive belt, serpentine belt and all accessible components for cracks, leaks and damage. Then the team checks the operation of the air conditioning compressor. If no leaks or damage are found, they evacuate the refrigerant from the system, vacuum test and recharge the air conditioning system using the appropriate refrigerant according to your vehicle manufacturer's specification.

Jiffy Lube® does not recommend servicing systems with detected leaks or damage. The Jiffy Lube® A/C evacuation and recharge is designed for periodic maintenance rather than A/C repair, but rest assured that Jiffy Lube® can recommend the next steps to be taken to get you’re A/C system up and running.

HOW IT WORKS:

Your vehicle’s air conditioning system, or A/C, cools and removes moisture from the air inside of your vehicle using three main components: the compressor, the condenser and the evaporator.

The compressor, driven by the vehicle’s drive belt, pumps the refrigerant through the A/C system. Inside this closed system, the refrigerant is exposed to high and low pressure, forcing it to change states between gas and liquid in order to capture and then release heat. While in a gas state, the refrigerant passes through the evaporator, capturing heat. The refrigerant then moves through the A/C lines and into the condenser, where the refrigerant cools as heat is released outside of the passenger compartment, and the refrigerant returns to a liquid.

For the system to work optimally, the system must have the proper amount of refrigerant and be free of contaminants.

HOW OFTEN:

Over time, an A/C system begins to lose its charge and become contaminated. If you notice that your vehicle isn’t cooling, visit Jiffy Lube® for A/C evacuation and recharge.

Jiffy Lube® recommends following manufacturer recommendations, where applicable, for maintenance schedules and service intervals.
