AC System Repair

Air conditioning is essential for any motorist driving in hot weather. One of the greatest misfortunes that could happen when travelling by car in Ontario summers, is for the A/C to fail.  That is why we recommend bringing your vehicle in for a Seasonal Check up before you hit the road. 

Your vehicle’s air conditioning is a complex collection of components that all need to work in unison to produce that nice cold air exactly when you need it.  You may take it for granted and really don’t want to know how it works but it is important to understand that because of the many parts, there is a chance that something will wear out or break down.

When your air conditioning system is malfunctioning, it could also affect your defogger which could make it difficult to see through your windshield and poses a danger.

Fortunately for you, we really do know how all the parts of your A/C work together. Our experienced team will inspect all the air conditioning components of your vehicle thoroughly. We perform efficient and fast air conditioning repairs and recharging if necessary to help you keep cool while driving in the Canadian summer heat.

Common A/C Issues

  • Electrical Issues
  • Blocked Air Intakes
  • Damaged parts such as hoses, belts, condenser, A/C compressor
  • Low refrigerant | Leak
  • Mildew Smell
  • Noisy while running
  • Water leaking
  • Cold Air turns to Hot Air

What does A/C Evacuation & Recharge mean?

Whenever your A/C system requires repairs, we must evacuate the system before we can recharge it. Evacuation makes sure that all gases are removed before we add new refrigerant. 

If there are no leaks, you air conditioner is recharged and you will have a great working system.  If during the process, a leak is detected further repairs are required.


The process of Evacuate & Recharge requires specialized equipment that will monitor and equalize high and low pressures of the air conditioning system.
