Atlas Transmission would like to welcome you to our website's page dedicated to questions our automotive technicians get from our customers in the greater Sumter ~ Columbia area about the repair and service of their vehicles' air conditioning and heating systems.
Is it necessary to recharge my vehicle's AC system?
Many Atlas Transmission customers believe the the air conditioning system in their vehicle naturally leaks refrigerant and should be recharged. This is not true and you should not need an air conditioning system in your car or truck to be recharged every year. When the refrigerant is low, one of the skilled technicians at Atlas Transmission should find and repair any leaks before recharging. Once recharged the vehicle's AC system should work well for many more miles before needing another recharge. If your vehicle's air conditioner is not cool enough for you we suggest you schedule an appointment at our auto repair shop in Sumter ~ Columbia.
