A/C EVACUATION AND RECHARGE SERVICE

The function of an air conditioner is to help remove the heat and humidity from inside the passenger compartment of the vehicle. Powered by a belt, the air conditioning compressor compresses the refrigerant to pressurize it and pump it through the system. The refrigerant is pushed through a valve where pressure and temperature are reduced. The now-cool refrigerant travels through the evaporator in the passenger compartment. As a result, cooled air is blown into your vehicle. This refrigerant returns to the compressor, where the cycle begins once again.

Jiffy Lube® certified technicians:

  • visually inspect the air conditioning compressor drive belt for cracks or damage
  • visually inspect accessible components for leaks or damage
  • check the operation of the air conditioning compressor and other air conditioning components
  • evacuate refrigerant from the system
  • vacuum test the system
  • recharge the air conditioning system using the appropriate refrigerant to the system capacity according to the vehicle manufacturer’s specifications

PLEASE NOTE: Not all Jiffy Lube® service centers offer all A/C Services. Please call ahead to ensure services are available. Our service is designed as a periodic maintenance service rather than a detailed troubleshooting or repair service. Jiffy Lube® technicians are certified through an EPA approved training program. Jiffy Lube® technicians begin the service by checking for signs of leaks. We do not recommend servicing systems with detected leaks.* * Federal, state and local laws apply.
