A/C Evacuation and Recharge Service
The function of an air conditioner is to help remove the heat and humidity from the
passenger compartment of the vehicle. Powered by a belt, the air conditioning
compressor compresses the refrigerant to pressurize it and pump it through the system.
The refrigerant is pushed through a valve where pressure and temperature are
reduced. The now-cool refrigerant travels through the evaporator in the passenger
compartment. As a result, cooled air is blown into your vehicle. This refrigerant returns
to the compressor, where the cycle begins once again.
Jiffy Lube® certified technicians:
- visually inspect the air conditioning compressor drive belt for cracks or
- visually inspect accessible components for leaks or damage
- check the operation of the air conditioning compressor and other air
conditioning components evacuate refrigerant from the system
- vacuum test the system
- recharge the air conditioning system using the appropriate refrigerant to the
system capacity according to the vehicle manufacturer's specification
