2012 Hyundai Santa Fe A/C Repair Near You

A/C Repair Service for Your Hyundai Santa Fe

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. 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 Hyundai Santa Fe A/C?” Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We’ve got experience with Hyundai vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2012 Hyundai A/C systems. Steer your Hyundai Santa Fe to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe’s A/C system to see if repair work is required. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. 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 Hyundai Santa Fe A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

A/C Recharge for Hyundai Santa Fe

Let's say we repair your 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe 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). Next, they will evacuate the system according to Hyundai's recommendations. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, 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 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Hyundai Santa Fe A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Hyundai Santa Fe A/C problem you may encounter. Another common A/C problem is 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 can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. 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 Santa Fe’s A/C!

2012 Hyundai Santa Fe A/C System FAQs

  • How can I make my Santa Fe 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 is my Santa Fe A/C blowing hot air? 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? 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 Santa Fe’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
