A Car’s AC System is a Complicated Process
The air conditioning in today’s vehicle’s is a complicated system that most people don’t think too much about until it stops blowing cold air. The ASE-certified experts at Tire Works are factory-trained to service and repair the computerized components in your AC system and adhere to all environmental disposal requirements.
The Components of Your AC System
This is the core of the AC system. It acts like a simple pump and it compresses the refrigerant gas and transfers it into the condenser.
Located directly in front of the radiator, its function is to cool the refrigerant. It dissipates the heat released by the gases from the compressor.
The drier needs to be changed every 3-4 years. It absorbs moisture from the coolant and filters debris and acids from the system.
Orifice Tube/Expansion Valve
This regulates the flow of refrigerant throughout the entire system. It also turns the refrigerant into a liquid that can move into the evaporator.
This piece of the system is susceptible to becoming corroded by acids. It removes heat from the inside cabin of the car and reduces humidity. It also contains the most refrigerant as it does its job.
Signs That You May Need AC Service
Here are some red flags you can look for that could identify an AC problem early:
- Watch for water on the floorboards inside the car.
- Listen for fluttering sounds, unusual noises, or weak airflow.
- Pay attention to the dashboard indicator light for the AC.
If you see any of these signs, call Tire Works right away. Our technicians can quickly diagnose the problem and provide a free estimate for repairs.

Paradise Auto AC Repair FAQs
What are the signs I need auto AC repair?
Your vehicle is great about telling you that there is something not working properly and will give you certain signs that you need auto AC repair or service. In addition to a lack of cool air, you should check for:
- Moisture or dampness: Built up moisture or damp spots in your car could be signs that your car air conditioning system is blocked and draining condensation into your car.
- Bad smells: If there is an issue with moisture in your car AC, it may lead to mold and mildew growing.
- Funky noises: If you are hearing whining noises, this could be a sign of a compressor issue that would require auto AC repair. A rattling or clattering noise is typically a sign that you have a foreign object within your car air conditioning system.

What does the compressor in my car air conditioning system do?
The compressor in the AC of your vehicle is one of the most important parts of your auto AC unit. The compressor acts to maintain the air pressure within the car air conditioning system and ensure the proper flow of refrigerant and cool air.
If there is an issue with the compressor, it may begin to slowly start blowing warmer air and emitting a whining or grinding noise when running. Before long, it will not blow cool air at all and will need replacing and a trip to Tire Works Total Car Care for some auto AC repair.
Are there some auto AC repairs I can do myself?
While there are certainly some benefits to fixing issues yourself, oftentimes the car air conditioning systems of today require specific knowledge and certain tools to resolve the issue. Because auto AC systems are increasingly complex and computerized, we would highly recommend letting a professional mechanic manage any and all car AC repairs.
