MOBILE A/C COMPRESSOR REPLACEMENT AT YOUR HOME OR OFFICE

The compressor is the very beating heart of your car air conditioning system. One of the most common problems is that the clutch will burn or sometimes the bearings will fail. If the bearings or clutch is shot it is usually necessary to replace the A/C compressor. In most cases it is more cost effective to replace the compressor instead of trying to order parts and repair one. Other problems that AC compressors have is bad A/C seals which will leak A/C oil or refrigerant. There is no way to replace seals on an A/C compressor, so replacement is necessary if this is the problem. Wrench provides A/C Compressor Replacement services with a reputation built on reliability and making it easy for our clients to get back on the road.

WHAT IS A/C COMPRESSOR REPLACEMENT?

The compressor is responsible for compressing the refrigerant gas, commonly known as Freon. When the gas is compressed it becomes very hot and is then sent through a condenser. The compressor is the core, primary part of every A/C system. If you want to stay cool, a working compressor is essential. The compressor pressurizes the refrigerant that cools your air. We’ve seen people try to create cold air without one. Trust Wrench mobile mechanic, it doesn’t work.

HOW IS A/C COMPRESSOR REPLACEMENT DONE?

The process to replace an air compressor may vary some depending on the make and model, but there are some common steps between almost all vehicles that our mobile mechanic follows.

  1. Check AC system pressure, power and ground on compressor
  2. Remove all refrigerant from a bad compressor
  3. Uninstall the compressor, tubes, drier, and or expansion valve
  4. Flush the system of debris and sludge
  5. Install new compressor and parts
  6. Recharge the system with refrigerant
  7. Verify there are no leaks
  8. Test the A/C system for cold air and good flow

These are the general steps that Wrench technicians follow when replacing an A/C compressor. Some models and makes may have slight variations for the steps or extra steps.

RECOMMENDATIONS

We recommend flushing and evacuating the A/C system before changing the parts. We also recommend that O-rings be changed with the compressor.
