AC System Basics
The Air Conditioning System in the modern automobile is tremendously complex. There are a number of parts which comprise your system, such as the compressor, receiver/drier (accumulator), orifice tube or expansion valve (filter) and more.
Freon? R134a? Huh?
Most vehicles on the road today use R134a refrigerant instead of the old R12 freon that used to be prevalent; either way, BRAKEmax has the expertise and the equipment necessary to safely service your system whether you need a diagnostic, a quick evacuation and refill or a complete system replacement. BRAKEmax technicians will inspect the physical components of the system for leaks, the fittings on the connections and service ports, and look for any other signs of trouble.
