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.

Hear from our Customers
Mike, who checked me in and explained all the repair needs, was very professional and helpful. I received a through computer based update of the status of my car. The work was done completely and quickly. My only complaint was that the driver's seat was left dirty. When I brought it back for the torque check, the technician cleaned the seat. Very pleased - I will return!
Excellent service. I’m so glad I stopped by here after finding it from AAA approved centers. I am settling down in a new area and wanted to find a good auto shop i can trust near my place. This place is beyond 5 stars. I am going back here for my next auto service.
Excellent customer service. Matt kept me informed and went out of his way to get my truck back as soon as possible. I will continue to go back for vehicle service and would recommend Silver Lake to others.
Service writer, Mike, was very considerate when upselling on things for a 10 year old high mileage car. He just sold me what I needed to keep it on the road for another year. Courtesy car provided for multiple overnights. Pictures of everything that needed fixing with explanations.
They were able to put a patch on my tire instead of replacing it, which saved me a lot of money. Everyone was very professional and knowledgeable, which I appreciate a lot. And they gave me some delicious chocolate chip cookies when I picked up my car! 10/10
Very efficient and knowledgeable Josh the manager was very polite I would go back there again and I would tell all my friends!
This was the first time using this business and I was impressed. They gave me a detailed lay out with pictures as to what needed to be fixed, ranked from high priority to low priority. They let me decided what I wanted to be done. No pushy salesman. I would highly recommend.
I took our Subaru in for new tires and brakes. Scheduling was simple. I received a call from Evan the morning of the appointment, verifying the type of tires I wanted, before I even dropped the car off. Their online inspection report was great, as I could look over their findings, and recommended maintenance items before speaking with the shop. I received a few calls throughout the day with status updates and was able to pick the car up the same day. Bonus - their military discount saved me s... Read More
I had tires shipped to Silver Lake from Tire Rack for mounting, balancing and installation on a 2005 Chevy Express AWD. The appointment was made promptly, the work was performed without any issues and they did not attempt to up-sell additional services. That is a big win for me! They did exactly what I asked for with no hassle. Brilliant! I will use their services in the future.
I've always had a great experience taking my vehicles here. They are honest, do great work and very professional. I also enjoy that they have courtesy cars. The nearby dealerships make you rent from their car rental business.
