Chevrolet Avalanche A/C Repair

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my Chevrolet Avalanche A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around Chevrolet vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2012 Chevrolet A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Chevrolet Avalanche

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche 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." A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Chevrolet Avalanche A/C system that can identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Avalanche A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche, 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 Chevrolet’s specifications to evacuate the system. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche A/C recharges.

Common Chevrolet Avalanche A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Chevrolet Avalanche A/C problem you may encounter. Another common A/C problem is weak airflow, which could indicate an old ventilation fan, a seal or hose that needs replacing, or mold buildup in your A/C system. If your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Avalanche’s A/C!

Questions About 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche A/C Systems

  • How can I make my Avalanche 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.
  • What’s making my Avalanche A/C put out warm air? If your car’s air conditioning isn’t blowing cold air at all (or it tries, then turns warm), you could have a clogged expansion valve, a faulty compressor clutch, a leak, or a malfunctioning fuse in the system.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? To put it simply, age and moisture are some of the main causes of leaks in your A/C. Over time, rubber gaskets and seals can wear out, which pushes much-needed refrigerant out of your Avalanche’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
