Air Conditioning Repair For Cars and Trucks
Friesen's Auto Center
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 Friesen's Auto Center. 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 970-490-1907 to learn more about how we can get your air conditioning running again!

Repair Your Car's AC Compressor
Let Friesen's Auto Center 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.

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.

The Thermal Expansion Valve or Orifice Tube monitors the amount of pressure and temperature of your A/C system to calculate the precise amount of refrigerant that can safely go into the evaporator. Uneven pressure can allow unwanted moisture to accumulate in a car or truck's AC system.
While traveling through the Ft. Collins area last Friday, I experienced a problem with the brakes on my camp trailer. I spring had broken and caused my brake to bind up. I stopped on a couple of shops along Collage. One of the shops didn't have time but called Friesens for me. The guys at Friesens said to bring it right over and they could take a look. Once we arrived the guys dropped what they were working on and went to work on my trailer, I knew they were busy as the shop was full of other customers vehicles. Long story short, the guys at Friesens saved our weekend in the mountains. Another great thing is they didn't try to gouge me out of a bunch of money and they were very quick. I have a couple of other projects that need repair and I will definitely take then to Friesens Auto.
