When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Honda HR-V A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around Honda vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2016 Honda HR-V A/C systems. Bring your Honda HR-V to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2016 Honda HR-V 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 any signs point to a possible leak, we’ll send a special U/V dye through the system, or use something called a “sniffer.” What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Honda HR-V A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.
Let's say we repair your 2016 Honda HR-V A/C system. We will also perform an A/C evacuation and recharge. To do this, one of our technicians will remove the refrigerant in your A/C system (if there is even any left to remove). Then, they’ll use Honda’s specifications to evacuate the system. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2016 Honda HR-V A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential Honda HR-V A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Typical A/C problems also 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. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 2016 Honda HR-V? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your HR-V — without all the sweat puddles!
