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.

Another part of keeping yourself and your passengers comfortable and your vehicle in good working order is in maintaining and regularly changing the filter related to your heater and air conditioning system. Which one is that? The cabin filter.

Why? Maintaining good indoor air quality is one good reason, especially if you spend hours commuting to work or transporting kids between trainings, rehearsals, meets, and games both during the week and on weekends. Road trips and vacations are another time to think about indoor air quality as well as overall vehicle health. Also, if you or a member of your family has asthma or a respiratory concern, keeping your filters monitored and clean will help them breathe easier and keep your maintenance costs to a minimum.

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

Very helpful and friendly, from the mechanics to the office. They are flexible with times and price. My car was having some issues but I could not afford the work on it till the next week. So they allowed me to park my car there until then with no problems. Comfortable feeling environment for sure.

We have used this facility several times since our move to Seattle and have been pleased each time. On this visit, we had some minor pre-trip items for them to address, which they did promptly and at no charge. They advised me on some other issues, and we really trust their judgment. Very pleasant people!
