A properly charged air conditioning system:
- Improves the air conditioning system's operating efficiency
- Cools and dehumidifies the passenger compartment
- Increases passenger comfort and reduces driver fatigue
- Extends the life of system components, specifically the compressor
Air conditioning in your vehicle works just like any air conditioning system. It does not actually create cold air! Instead, using various components, air conditioning removes the heat and humidity from the air that's already in your car.
Air Conditioning Recharge
The Air Conditioning (A/C) Recharge is a combined recovery, recycle, and recharge service using the specified refrigerant to provide chilled air to the passenger compartment. We check, vacuum, purge and recharge your air conditioning system according to the owner's manual specifications. Grease Monkey™ technicians who perform the air conditioning recharge are certified through an EPA-approved training program.
Does your system need a recharge?
Most vehicle owner's manuals recommend the air conditioning system be checked annually. The refrigerant in an air conditioning system does not wear out, but leaks, contaminants, condensation and non-condensable materials reduce its efficiency. Air conditioning systems that no longer cool can indicate the need for service, but it is not meant to be a repair. You will be advised if a repair is recommended
Aircomatic Ultrasonic Air Conditioning Cleaning System
The Aircomatic Ultrasonic Air Conditioning Cleaning System is designed to eliminate unpleasant odors associated with mold, mildew, fungus, and bacteria that permeate the air ducts as a result of moisture condensation in the air conditioning system. It also eliminates most odors in the carpeting, upholstery, and headliner that can come from smoking, spilled food and beverages.

Air Conditioning Treatment
An air conditioning treatment typically reduces the air temperature provided by your vehicle's air conditioning by 5-15°. It also cuts cabin humidity while improving overall efficiency and extending the life of the air conditioning system.
