At Jim’s Berwyn Auto Repair and Jim’s Berwyn Sunoco, we specialize in all aspects of AC servicing and repair. The gases used in your AC system escape over time, with most systems needing to be regassed on a regular basis. As cars get older, problems can also occur with specific components, from pipes and evaporators to compressors and condensers.

Auto Air Conditioning Parts
Modern cars have fairly sophisticated air conditioning systems, with the following components helping to control the climate of your ride:
This fluid alters between liquid and gas within coils to make cooling possible
This part acts as a pump to compress the refrigerant and pass it to the evaporator
This system of coils acts as a heat exchange and changes the refrigerant from gas to liquid
The opposite of a condenser, this part converts liquid fluid back to gas
Air Conditioning Servicing
During a standard AC service, one of our technicians will inspect your vehicle and hook it up to a special refrigerant recovery system. After we have drained old and harmful gases from your car, we will look at air conditioning pipes and components to check for cracks. We may apply a tracer dye during this process to help find small leaks. We will then put new fluid into your system, inspecting lines and seals to keep your AC working at maximum efficiency.
Air Conditioning Repairs
If your air conditioning system is leaking or damaged, you may need to get old parts swapped out. While AC servicing typically involves new fluid and AC system inspection, additional work may be needed if system parts or lines are compromised. This is especially true for your compressor, condenser, or evaporator, which may need to be replaced if they're damaged.
For example, if your compressor malfunctions, the entire AC system will fail to work. This could be due to a visible leak, a bad seal and bearing, or an old component that needs to be replaced. Your condenser can also become non-operational, with this part often getting clogged due to a build-up of leaves, dust, or debris. Evaporators can also experience leaks and clogs, with a detailed inspection needed to uncover issues and replace parts if needed.
