Five Signs Your Car AC Needs To Be Serviced?

  • Your car air conditioning blows only slightly cooler than the outside air.
  • Your car's air conditioner blows air that smells like mildew and mold.
  • Your A/C only works while driving.
  • You have low airflow even at the highest fan setting.
  • Water condensing or dripping on your foot while driving.

Don't wait! If your car's A/C is working at reduced efficiency, it's worth a visit to Higher Standards Automotive. Taking care of regular maintenance now can help you avoid more expensive AC repair costs down the road. Sometimes fixing a broken air conditioner is as simple and cost effective as adding new coolant.

Most truck and car air conditioning systems break eventually with usage. Hoses that feed the AC unit may crack, clog or drip if not serviced. Let us service your car or truck and keep your cooling system performing at its peak. Call us at 989-495-0200 to learn more about how we can get your air conditioning running again!

Common Automotive AC Repair Services

Recharging Your Car's AC
Higher Standards Automotive in Midland for Recharging Your Freon Fast

In some instances when your car's air conditioning (AC) begins to lose its cooling power or fails to blow cool air, it may be time for a simple freon recharge. Recharging your freon is often a fast and inexpensive repair that can help you beat the summer heat. But leaking freon may be caused by a cracked hose or seal. It is often an indicator that a more significant repair is needed.

Repair Your Car's AC Compressor
Let Higher Standards Automotive Repair Your Car's AC Compressor

The cool air in your car is produced primarily by the compressor. The four main functions that your vehicle's compressor carries out include pressurizing the refrigerant to cool cabin air, monitoring and controlling temperature output, sensing temperature changes inside and outside the vehicle, and moving air to your car's AC condenser.

Repair Your Car's AC Condenser
Discover the Best AC Condenser Repair in Midland

Your vehicle's A/C condenser is usually located in the front of the radiator. When your AC compressor is pressurizing the refrigerant flows to the condenser to reduce the temperature and pressure. The condenser is a vital component in keeping your car's cabin temperature cool. It moves the cooled liquid refrigerant to the receiver/dryer or accumulator.

We had a nagging issue that left my wife's car out of comission. I usually repair vehicles myself and turned to the team here for help. They were excellent to work with, went above and beyond to clearly communicate, and venture professionals. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them!

Higher Standards is an amazing shop. I had several issues with my car over the past month, which is unfortunate for my wallet. But the owners and staff here were amazing in being able to promptly get me in. One of the issues was even an immediate safety one and they stayed late to get it fixed for me without charging me any overtime costs. They are professional and very clear in explaining issues and answering questions. As a younger female, we always are concerned about mechanics just trying to take advantage of us, but these guys have 100% earned my trust. I won't take my car anywhere else now and highly recommend them to everyone I know.
