Five Signs Your Car AC Needs To Be Serviced?

  • Your car air conditioning blows only slightly cooler than the outside air.
  • Your car's air conditioner blows air that smells like mildew and mold.
  • Your A/C only works while driving.
  • You have low airflow even at the highest fan setting.
  • Water condensing or dripping on your foot while driving.

Don't wait! If your car's A/C is working at reduced efficiency, it's worth a visit to Bennett Automotive. Taking care of regular maintenance now can help you avoid more expensive AC repair costs down the road. Sometimes fixing a broken air conditioner is as simple and cost effective as adding new coolant.

Most truck and car air conditioning systems break eventually with usage. Hoses that feed the AC unit may crack, clog or drip if not serviced. Let us service your car or truck and keep your cooling system performing at its peak. Call us at 805-496-8886 to learn more about how we can get your air conditioning running again!

Repair Your Car's AC Compressor
Let Bennett Automotive Repair Your Car's AC Compressor

The cool air in your car is produced primarily by the compressor. The four main functions that your vehicle's compressor carries out include pressurizing the refrigerant to cool cabin air, monitoring and controlling temperature output, sensing temperature changes inside and outside the vehicle, and moving air to your car's AC condenser.

Repair Your Car's AC Condenser
Discover the Best AC Condenser Repair in Thousand Oaks

Your vehicle's A/C condenser is usually located in the front of the radiator. When your AC compressor is pressurizing the refrigerant flows to the condenser to reduce the temperature and pressure. The condenser is a vital component in keeping your car's cabin temperature cool. It moves the cooled liquid refrigerant to the receiver/dryer or accumulator.

After taking my truck to several auto shops and one of them actually replacing a valve for the check engine light. The light kept coming on, took my truck to Bennett automotive, he cleaned up corrosion on an electrical connector and put a little electrical grease on the connector, and no more problems. I will go to Bennett automotive for all my auto needs from now on. A fair and honest team. Thanks Brent

Brent always does a professional job. I have been going to this garage for almost 10 years. Never had a problem he could not fix. Even gave my son, a budding auto mechanic, suggestion as my son rebuilt his car. The online service is great for making appointments and seeing past and future maintenances.

In the middle of a heatwave the last thing you need is your AC to be on the fritz. I was trying to be cheap and tried diy and soon realized this needs to be left to the pros. I found Bennett's Automotive and was impressed with the reviews so I called and Brent quoted me less than any shop. I went to his shop and was impressed. He's very professional and doesn't sugarcoat things. He's up front and to the point when it comes to prices. Unlike most mechanics these days that throw surprise costs at you at the time of checkout. Needless to say my AC is blowing nice cool air and I can now cruise with my windows up and be comfortable. I'll be back for future maintenance.
