Automotive A/C Service and Air Condition Repair in Central Iowa

The first working air conditioning system was created by Willis Haviland Carrier in 1902. It effectively removed heat and humidity for one very happy customer -- a Brooklyn printing plant owner.

How your air conditioning system works:

First, a belt powers the system by compressing, pressurizing and pumping the refrigerant through the A/C system. Next, the refrigerant is pushed through a valve with decreased temperature and pressure. Then, the cooled refrigerant moves through the evaporator and is blown into your vehicle. Finally, the refrigerant travels back to the compressor where the cycle begins all over again.

When your air conditioning system does not work:

To get you back to feeling comfortable as soon as possible, we look at a number of things in the A/C system.

  • We examine the A/C compressor drive belt for any cracks or damage
  • We inspect any accessible A/C components for damage or leaks
  • We check how components are operating, such as the A/C compressor
  • We remove refrigerant from your A/C system
  • We vacuum test your system
  • We recharge the A/C system with refrigerant (according to the specifications of the vehicle's manufacturer)

Serpentine Belt Replacement

At times, the serpentine belt is where an A/C problem stems from. This belt sends power from the engine to operate various engine components, such as the alternator and water pump. One other component that it operates is the air conditioner compressor. If needed, we will visually inspect your serpentine belt, remove the old belt and install a new one.
