Vehicle AC Repair In Minnesota
- Wednesday, 20 July 2022 11:06
There are lots of reasons to love living in Minnesota. The people are generally some of the kindest you can find in the United States, and that is arguably the best reason of all to live here. Minnesotans are known for their tolerance of extreme weather too, and we can all agree that, whether we love it or hate it, Minnesota’s weather is a big reason that makes us who we are. Just as we prepare ourselves and our homes for the extremes of Minnesota’s weather, it is a good idea to prepare our automobiles for those same extremes. We have multiple ways to cope with the frigid temperatures of winter and the increasingly hot temperatures of summer. Our vehicles, even if we use a garage, spend the majority of the time out in the elements. Clark Automotive can help you prolong the life of your vehicles with simple, regular maintenance, as well as timely repairs when something goes wrong with your heating and/or air conditioning system.
Minnesota Car Repair Shop That Can Fix AC Issues
The warm weather months in Minnesota tend not to feel as long as the cold weather months, so if something goes wrong with our vehicle’s air conditioning system, we may be more tempted to roll down the windows and deal with the heat until we can get into a more climate-controlled environment. But there is no doubt that getting into a car that has been sitting in the hot sun for hours becomes a much more pleasant experience when we feel the cool air blowing from the dashboard of our vehicles. A problem with a vehicle’s air conditioning system may be as simple as adding some Freon or clearing a blocked airway. It may also be that your vehicle needs some repair work done to its A/C compressor. It is also possible that your compressor is in good shape, but a problem has developed with the fan. Such an issue will result in the production of cool air but limited to no circulation of it. Clark Automotive’s technicians can fix almost any problem with vehicle AC units.
The heating units in modern vehicles are less complex than air units because they still draw warmth from the engine. But that does not mean that all vehicles will remain comfortable in cold weather months. Remember, Minnesota can get awfully cold in the winter.

With spring right around the corner, it’s never too early to think about whether your car’s AC system is in tip top shape. While Minnesota has its fair share of cold weather, summers can be scorching so it’s important that your AC system is working properly. At Clark Automotive, we offer a variety of AC system recharging and testing services and would be happy to offer a free estimate if you’re currently dealing with AC problems.
Benefits of AC System Recharging and Testing
Below are just a few reasons why you may be able to benefit from AC system recharging and testing.
Bring back the cold air!
If the weather starts to heat up and you turn on your AC and notice warm air coming out of the vents, it’s pretty obvious that you have a problem. The two primary problems are likely either your AC compressor is having issues, or your system is low on refrigerant. Whichever problem you’re experiencing, it’s critical that you have your system looked at by a reputable mechanic in the area. They can help you determine whether you need to recharge your system, or if something larger is at play.
If your AC system needs a recharge, you likely have some type of leak, as an AC system is by nature a closed system. Depending on the size of the leak, you may be able to recharge your system and have it last for quite a long time. Working with an honest mechanic like our team at Clark Automotive, we’ll be upfront about our opinion as to whether it makes sense to recharge your system, or perform a more extensive repair to fix the AC leak once and for all.
Find the actual problem
You may be aware that you can purchase AC recharge kits from auto parts stores in your area. The problem is that these kits aren’t very reliable and they don’t help to pinpoint what the actual problem is with your AC system. Thanks to our AC testing, we can help find the underlying problem and come up with the most economical way to fix it.
