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.

Tyler got me in and done a day ahead of schedule, and then fixed my wifes TPMS on her truck after I came back to get my tires with her truck. Exceptional service and professionalism, and a very clean shop. I'll be back for a alignment soon!
My husband and I have brought both of our vehicles to Silver Lake. We even had an emergency flat that they did overnight service for us! Excellent customer service and a company that cares!
Top notch customer service at Silver Lake Auto in Oconomowoc! They went for a test drive with me when I dropped of my truck to understand the problems I was having, diagnosed the issues properly, had great communication on how they were going to fix them and offered me a courtesy car to drive while they fixed by truck. To put a cherry on top... they cleaned my truck truck inside and out! Thank you!

Great auto repair shop. Fair and informative. 5 stars plus!
I’ve used SLAC for various things over the years both personal and professional (I’m a GM for a local collision repair center) and the service has always been great. Just last night I needed my wife’s car towed from Oconomowoc to Watertown and even though it was after hours, Rob and Sean coordinated everything with their driver who happened to be in the area and got it done way quicker than I anticipated.
