What Does your AC do?
A cars cooling system works to keep you cool in the summer and your engine cool all year round no matter the outside temperature. Your vehicle's air conditioning system is complex. Its main job is evaporation and condensation as well as compression and expansion. Basically, it is thermodynamics for all the smart people out there. However, it is not too hard to understand and you only need to comprehend a few basic things to put together how it all works. The Compressor is the core or heart of the cooling system. It takes refrigerant in gas form, pressurizes it, and then sends it through a condenser. The condenser is a series of refrigeration lines that turns the pressurized refrigerant vapor into liquid form. Once in liquid form, it goes through a receiver dryer to eliminate any moisture from the refrigerant that may have collected during the pressurization process. Pressure is removed and then the cool air is circulated throughout the vehicle. The radiator, evaporator, condenser, and expansion valve work together to safeguard your engine from overheating year-round and keeps you cool in the summer.
Does my Vehicle’s AC Need Maintenance?
Yes from time to time and your car AC will need maintenance, service, or maybe even repair. Save time and check your fluid levels; the correct amount of refrigerant is important and necessary. DO NOT OVERFILL! This is one mistake; you do not want to make yourself. If your ac is not working well try adding refrigerant, this could save you valuable time and money; but it might not fix the problem. If that does not work bring your vehicle to Silver Lake Auto & Tire Centers. For optimum performance, we suggest having your cooling system inspected every 20,000 miles or refer to your owner's manual for specific intervals. Stay ahead of costly ac repair with routine inspection and maintenance with Silver Lake's car ac repair specialists.

I wish I was able to give Silver Lake Auto 10 stars because the customer care I received was outstanding!!! Over the last few months I have been hearing from mutual friends and business owners how pleased they were with the services and care they had received from Silver Lake Auto, so I decided to try them out. I was beyond impressed with the welcoming service team, detailed communication, the cleanliness and comfort of the waiting area, the added touch of giving my vehicle back to me washed ... Read More
Had my front wheel bearings replaced and a few other things. This was my first visit ever to Silver Lake Auto & Tire Centers. The service and communications were the best. Free loaner car while mine was being repaired. I am so happy with the work done. The car I started to dislike is now fixed and wonderful! I know that I have found an auto repair center that I will be returning to.
Excellent experience. The waiting area is clean. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. My car was completed in a timely manor. And, the communication was great. I will definitely use them again.
Silver Lake Auto is close to my work and I knew my boss had used them often. I had air continuously leaking from a tire and suspected I had a nail or puncture. They were able to get me in the same day and make the repair. I got a free car wash and vacuum out or the small and affordable fix. All the men were nice, it was taken care of very quickly, and I was impressed with the overall thoroughness they provided, including photos and updates on other parts of the car so I have the records. I ex... Read More
Reliable and honest. These guys are your old school auto shop, right to the point and honest about everything, with great estimates. Shout out to Seth Kline for helping graciously with setting an appointment around a busy holiday, and with getting work done around a busy schedule. 10/10
In-N-Out no problems only thing was kind of weird. Was a bird flying in the store other than that good service. Hello to me when I came in and have a great day when I left out.
As always, everyone there did a great job taking care of my vehicle. Got a new set of Blizzak's for the car my wife drives in the winter. Great program for storing our summer tires too!
Both mine and my husband’s car were in need of repair and we had a great experience with Silver Lake! Seth was our advisor and was very honest about the whole process and kept us informed. He even went out of his way to pick us up in order for us not to make multiple trips to pick up our cars. We were very happy with how quick they got us in and our cars fixed. Thank you so much!
Ben, the sales rep, was super friendly every time we spoke. The car was ready when they said it would be and they remained open during a snow storm to take care of their customers (including me). Would definitely return when I need tire service!
I had a great experience at Silver Lake. The employees were very responsive and quick to help. I will be returning for any further car needs! They were able to complete the repair quickly which was greatly appreciated!
