Nearest A/C Repair for Your 2020 Subaru Legacy

A/C Repair Service for Your Subaru Legacy

When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. 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 Subaru Legacy A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know Subaru vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2020 Subaru Legacy A/C systems. Bring your Subaru Legacy to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2020 Subaru Legacy’s A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. 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 Subaru Legacy A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Legacy A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2020 Subaru Legacy, we’ll also do 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 Subaru's recommendations. 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 2020 Subaru Legacy A/C recharges.

Other Subaru Legacy A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Subaru Legacy 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. 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 2020 Subaru Legacy? 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 Legacy — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 2020 Subaru Legacy A/C Systems

  • How can I make my Legacy 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 Legacy A/C? Maybe your A/C starts cool but then gets warm. Or maybe it never gets cold in the first place. Either way, your A/C troubles could be traced back to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak.
  • What can cause an A/C system 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 Legacy’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
