A/C Repair Service for Your Chevrolet Avalanche 1500

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Your steering wheel feels like lava. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Chevrolet Avalanche 1500?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know Chevrolet vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2006 Chevrolet A/C systems. Steer your Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2006 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a leak test. If we suspect a leak, we’ll send a U/V dye through your A/C system or use a “sniffer” to find the leak. A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Recharge the A/C in Your Avalanche 1500

While your 2006 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500’s air conditioner is being serviced, 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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Chevrolet guidelines. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re all set. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2006 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 A/C recharges.

Common Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Typical A/C problems also include weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. 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 2006 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Avalanche 1500.

2006 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 A/C System FAQs

  • How do I make my Avalanche 1500 air conditioning colder? Here are a few quick ideas. Shut the passenger air vents and point the other vents directly toward you. Park your car in the shade and use a window sun blocker. Then visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • Why do I get hot air from my Avalanche 1500 A/C? An A/C blowing hot air has several possible root causes. There could be an issue with your compressor clutch, a blown fuse, a leak, or a clog in the expansion valve.
  • What causes A/C system leaks? A/C system leaks are often due to a combination of age and moisture. Rubber seals and gaskets naturally degrade over time, allowing refrigerant to exit and moisture to enter your Avalanche 1500's A/C system.
