Car air conditioner service does more than keep you cool. It maintains the entire A/C system to prevent a costly repair.

As the system gets low on refrigerant, the amount of oil carried to the compressor reduces, and the
amount of heat the oil and refrigerant can carry away from the compressor goes down.
Operating the A/C with low refrigerant is much like running your engine low on oil. It will cause
