Replacing old refrigerant has another benefit: refrigerant tends to gather moisture and becomes corrosive. That causes leaks in the system which can be expensive to repair. Fresh refrigerant protects your car's A/C system components and keeps the system operating at peak efficiency so it doesn't have to work as hard to keep you cool.
Even with regular vehicle service, automotive A/C parts can just wear out. Normal wear and tear eventually gets to all moving parts. Addressing early problems can save on more extensive automotive repairs down the road. For instance, a common failure is the clutch that turns the compressor on and off. If you can take care of a bad A/C clutch when it first starts having problems, you may be able to save the compressor. Wait too long and you'll have to replace both.

Let's talk about automotive air conditioning service and air conditioning repair issues in Palm Desert and surrounding cities. Most of us in the Coachella Valley don't give our air conditioning a second thought as long as it's making cold air. But it's a complex and expensive system that we should think about before it starts blow hot air.
The refrigerant in the air conditioner contains a special oil that lubricates and cool A/C parts. When enough refrigerant leaks out, your air conditioner still makes cold air, but the parts don't have enough oil to protect them and they wear out faster than they should. It is important to service your car's A/C system.
