Honda HR-V A/C Repair

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. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Honda HR-V A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with Honda vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2018 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 2018 Honda HR-V A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and 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" is a machine that's run along parts of your Honda HR-V A/C system that can detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

A/C Recharge for Honda HR-V

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2018 Honda HR-V, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Honda's recommendations. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2018 Honda HR-V A/C recharges.

Other Honda HR-V A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Honda HR-V A/C problem you may encounter. Other common A/C problems include 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 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. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 2018 Honda HR-V? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your HR-V — without all the sweat puddles!

2018 Honda HR-V A/C System FAQs

  • How can I make my HR-V 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 HR-V 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.
  • 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 HR-V’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
