Best Practices
  • We recommend replacing the A/C drier when the A/C compressor is replaced. The A/C drier acts as a moisture and debris filter for the A/C system and a new part will keep the repaired system clean. (This will add additional parts and labor cost to the estimate.)

  • Any restrictions in the A/C system will need to be identified and repaired or a recurring problem with the A/C compressor is likely.

Common Symptoms
  • AC compressors may need to be replaced if they are found to be leaking oil and/or refrigerant.

  • Failing A/C compressors that make unusually loud noises while operating should be addressed before they cause damage to other parts in the AC system.

Common Misdiagnoses
  • "Stop leak" compounds are not recommended, as they are a temporary solution and can damage A/C components, resulting in expensive repairs.
