Heating & Air Conditioning Service

Problems with heating or air conditioning (A/C) can make any journey miserable. More importantly, poor ventilation puts your safety at risk. Windows can mist up and reduce visibility, while a stuffy cabin makes driver and passengers feel drowsy. If you’re experiencing anything like this, it’s time to have your vehicle looked at. Franklynn Automotive located in Littleton, CO offers auto air conditioning (AC) and heating repair services.

Air Conditioning Issues
Both the heater and the A/C rely on a fan that blows air into the passenger compartment. To provide warmth the air passes through a heat exchanger heated by hot coolant from the engine cooling system. That’s why it takes time to get warm air on a cold morning.
A/C is more complicated and actually works like a refrigerator. There’s a compressor that pumps fluid around the system. As the fluid passes into a heat exchanger, it picks up heat from the incoming air. That warms the fluid but cools the air before it enters the cabin.
Typical problems with the heating & A/C systems include:
  • No air coming into the vehicle
  • Strange smells
  • Air not getting cold (when A/C is on)
  • Air not getting hot (when heater is on)
  • In most cases the fix is an easy one. It might mean replacing a cabin air filter or recharging the A/C with more refrigerant. In older vehicles it’s not uncommon for rust to build up in the heat exchangers, and that reduces efficiency. When that happens a thorough flushing is often all that’s needed.

    Our team is familiar with the heating and A/C systems on almost every make and model of car and there are few problems they haven’t seen before.

    NOTE: NEVER get a can of Quick Charge and try to solve your A/C problems on your own. These products contain solutions meant to stop leaks, but they also stop critical airflow for the system drastically cutting the performance and longevity of your system. Once this happens, the only way to correct it is to replace the entire A/C system.
