Sometimes, the air conditioner in your vehicle will stop blowing cool air for your comfort. Over time, your A/C’s air will get less and less cool. This means that your A/C system needs recharge in most cases. During the A/C recharge service, our Toyota certified technicians will inspect your A/C system to ensure that there are no other problems preventing your A/C from working properly.
Once they have identified that a recharge is necessary, the old refrigerant in your A/C system is removed. When it is drained, the technicians will then supply your system with a new refrigerant and test it before turning your Toyota back over to you.
Before your refrigerant goes completely void and is no longer working, you will start to see signs. First, your Toyota may continue to cool, but it may take a lot longer to get it to cool down than it did before. Commuters who only live minutes away from their job notice this right away because they are home before the car starts to cool off. For those with longer commutes, they do not see it happen as quickly. By the time they realize they need an air conditioning recharge service, their Toyota is barely cooling and warm days seem even warmer.
While it will not have any effect on your engine and the performance of your Toyota, it will have complete control of your comfort level. The air conditioner is used in or around Hazelwood, MO for a good part of the year. When the temperatures start to rise and you are forced to ride with your clothes sticking to the seats, you will want to have your Toyota serviced.
Some Toyota owners attempt to do the recharge kit at home with DIY systems. Unfortunately, these turn out to do more damage than good for most. The old refrigerant is not properly extracted from the system and blends with the new refrigerant. This could be dangerous and cause more issues with your Toyota and cost you much more in service costs.
