A/C Service for Buick Encore

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Buick Encore A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We’ve got experience with Buick vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2017 Buick A/C systems. Steer your Buick Encore to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2017 Buick Encore A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. If we think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Buick Encore A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Encore A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2017 Buick Encore, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. To start this process, a technician will flush out the old refrigerant from your vehicle’s A/C system. Then, they’ll use Buick’s specifications to evacuate the system. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re all set. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2017 Buick Encore A/C recharges.

Other Buick Encore A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Buick Encore A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could mean you have a compromised seal, mildew or mold buildup, a loose or damaged hose, or a ventilation fan that needs to be replaced. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 2017 Buick Encore? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Encore’s A/C!

Frequently Asked Questions for 2017 Buick Encore A/C Systems

  • Can I make my Encore air conditioner colder? For starters, use a sun-blocking shade in the windshield while you’re parked, or look for a shady parking spot. Closing all the passenger vents in your car can help redirect cold air toward you, cooling you off faster. Still need more chill? Head to Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • Why do I get hot air from my Encore A/C? Maybe your A/C starts cool but then gets warm. Or maybe it never gets cold in the first place. Either way, your A/C troubles could be traced back to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your Encore’s A/C system naturally degrade. Moisture can get into the system and cause a malfunction, or parts can simply wear out so that your system no longer seals properly.
