Air Conditioning & Heating

Air conditioning and heating aren’t luxury systems. It’s actually important to keep your A/C, if you have it, and your heater in good working order. After all, if you’re comfortable, temperature-wise, you’ll be better able to navigate safely & drive defensively, instead of feeling way too hot in July, or far too cold in January.

These are the terms and parts relating to your vehicle’s air conditioning & heating system:

Air conditioning compressors

Air conditioning evacuation & recharging

Air conditioning hoses

Air conditioning orifice tubes

Air conditioning receiver dryers

Air conditioning service & repair

Belts

Blower motors & resistors

Cabin filter

Expansion valves

Heater blend doors

Heater control valves

Heater cores

Thermostats

Vent actuators

Get your air conditioning and heating systems looked at before you take a long road trip or when you are using your heater, but it just doesn’t seem as warm as it used to. Likewise, when you’ve turned on your air conditioner, but it’s not feeling as cool as it once did.

When you’re comfortable, you’re a safer driver, so keep these systems in good working order!

Hands down the best auto shop I've ever been to. Tom's is always friendly, accommodating and takes time to explain the issue. Recently they went the extra mile on an issue with our car and spent time (that the dealer wouldn't) diagnosing, finding and fixing the issue. All for a fair price and with an incredibly helpful attitude. Don't hesitate for a minute to go to this locally owned small business who consistently knocks it out of the park. We've been going to them for 10+ years and always had A+++ customer service.

I called in to get oil change for my 2018 car and the guy who took my call told me about the importance of going back to the dealer for the first oil change so that we wouldn’t have any warranty issue in the future. He told me that he would be happy to work on our car next time. I’m definitely taking our car back there! Hard to find a place like this nowadays 🙂

What I appreciate most about Tom's Auto in West Seattle is their level of customer service. Compared to a dealership shop, their personal attention to details like explaining the list of items your car needs in order of priority helps to break it down and not be overwhelmed. Yes, car repairs can add up, but their approach makes it palatable. It puts us in the position to prioritize what to take care of first. They are experts in auto repairs and customer service!

EXCELLENT service. I went in for burned out tail lights. They took me without an appointment; got me in and out in 20 minutes and chargedme less than $25. Definitely going back
