The heating, ventilation and air conditioning system keeps us comfortable in our vehicles year-round. With minimal input from us, this complex system keeps us warm and the windshield fog-free in the winter, and makes sure we stay cool even on the most sweltering summer days. But with such complexity, it’s inevitable that parts will fail and that’s where we can help, by supplying you with the quality replacement A/C and heating parts you need to stay comfy.

In the A/C system, gaseous low-pressure refrigerant is drawn into the belt-driven compressor, where it is compressed and sent to the condenser under high-pressure. The condenser cools the refrigerant into its liquid form; it then flows to an expansion valve or orifice tube tube that meters it to the evaporator core in the cabin, where it absorbs the heat from the interior and returns to its gaseous form. The fan blows air over the core and makes you feel cool.

Of course, this is a simplified description of the system, and there are other parts like receiver-driers on expansion valve systems and accumulators on orifice tube systems, as well as pressure switches, compressor clutch, condenser fan, and the control system that turns your input into frosty air from the ducts. No matter the system malady, we have the parts to repair you’re A/C and keep it in top shape, from well-known manufacturers.

Your vehicle’s heater is not as elaborate as the A/C system but it’s the only one you care about when the mercury dips to the single digits. Coolant warmed by the engine is pumped through hoses to a heater core located under the dash. The heater core is like a miniature radiator, but where the radiator transfers engine heat to the outside air to maintain engine temperature, the heater core and blower motor transfers this heat to inside the cabin to keep you warm and keep your windshield clear. But if you’re not feeling the warmth or if you smell or see coolant on the floor, call us for heater replacement parts.

Because your heater relies on engine coolant, your engine’s cooling system must also be up to snuff or you’ll be shivering on the drive to work. A thermostat that’s stuck open won’t allow the engine to maintain a minimum operating temperature and you won’t have hot coolant flowing through the heater core. The core can also become clogged if the cooling system isn’t flushed regularly. No worries here though, because we have all the parts you need to repair and maintain your cooling system from brands you know and trust.

Many new cars are equipped with cabin air filters. These great additions to the heating, ventilation, and A/C system trap dust, pollen and other contaminants so you and your passengers can breathe healthy, clean air, and the charcoal-type versions even block odors. But these filters are often neglected and when they become clogged, their ability to filter pollutants is diminished, and they can restrict the flow of air. Thankfully, these filters are relatively easy to change and we have a great selection from the best filter makers in the world.

    How To Use An A/C Manifold Gauge Set
    An air conditioning manifold gauge set is a must-have tool for anyone who is interested in performing some basic system work at home, such as checking pressure in a/c lines, determining if there's a leak, adding small amounts of refrigerant, or performing a complete evacuation and recharge. Compact, hand-held manifold gauge sets are used universally when servicing home air conditioning systems as well as automotive ones, and professional technicians use them same way you can in your back yard. Although shops typically have large, costly machines that do the evacuating and recharging work, similar results can be achieved with equipment that can be purchased inexpensively and stored easily.

    Servicing Your Cabin Air Filter
    Does your vehicle have a cabin air filter? You may not know the answer to this question. If you bought your vehicle new, the salesperson may have made a point of letting you know of this feature. If you’ve had your vehicle serviced at a dealership, the service writer may have suggested to you that this filter be replaced. It seems that as opposed to air, oil, and fuel filters, many car owners just don’t know if there is a cabin air filter in their car.

    Auto Parts: Dealer vs. Aftermarket
    The question of whether to buy parts from an automotive dealer vs. ones from aftermarket manufacturers is as age-old as the automobile itself. Below, we'll take a look at things worth considering to help you make a better choice if you're facing that same question. Automobile manufacturers and dealerships always advertise the fact that their parts are "genuine" because they were made by the exact same production facility that made the parts installed on the assembly line.
