Air Conditioning Myrtle Beach
Why do so many local residents choose Archer’s for their vehicle’s air conditioning Myrtle Beach service?
Because we fix it right, the first time. Oftentimes a simple refrigerant recharge is all it takes to get your system blowing cold air again. Over-the-counter options are now available for those that prefer to ‘do-it-yourself’. These alternatives are cheaper than a professional service but do have certain drawbacks.
Firstly, many of these products have ‘stop-leak’ additives which are designed to clog up any small leaks. We have found that these short-term fixes end up causing long-term damage as they gum up system components. Additionally, the gauges that come with these kits are generic and of poor quality, measuring system pressure (Pounds per Square Inch) on only the low-pressure side. Proper pressure readings will vary significantly depending on weather temperature.
Every vehicle’s A/C system holds a specific amount of refrigerant (measured in pounds, ounces). A few ounces over/under can have very negative consequences. Undercharging the system causes the compressor to cycle and burn out prematurely. Overcharging puts excessive pressure on various seals and will similarly blow out the compressor.
Archer’s has EPA-certified technicians and professional-grade equipment to ensure that your A/C system is properly charged every time. In addition, we go the extra steps to make sure you aren’t wasting money by recharging a leaking system.
Archer’s Air Conditioning Check
We begin by checking all related electrical components and connections. Once confirmed these are functioning properly, our technician will visually inspect all belts, hoses, fans, etc. for any signs of disrepair. At this point, we also check the system’s pressure (both high- and low-side) to verify the normal operating range.
Archer’s Ultraviolet Leak Inspection
Our technician will then hook up a refrigerant recovery machine, place the system in a state of vacuum, and measure the amount of refrigerant remaining in the system. This is evacuated (along with any air/moisture) and recycled. The proper capacity for the vehicle is referenced then recharged with new refrigerant. An ultraviolet dye & oil is added to aid in the detection of any leaks. By utilizing a blacklight, our technician can now pinpoint even the smallest leaks in your air conditioning system.
Archer’s Air Conditioning Recharge Service
When our customers request a recharge, we go through the above-listed steps before blindly adding refrigerant to a possibly broken air conditioning system. If we determine your issue is simply a switch or fuse, we stop at step A) and provide an estimate for repair. Likewise for step B), and the full Archer’s Recharge Service includes any required diagnostics, estimate, and full system recharge to exact capacity. Our thorough and customer-minded approach separates Archer’s as the best-valued service available in Myrtle Beach.
