Air conditioning is a modern marvel that we often take for granted. We have a whole system in our car that takes hot air and removes the heat from it through an ingenious feat of physical chemistry. However, that system needs maintenance like all other systems in your car, and at Sheehy Volkswagen, we can provide that for you. We can also help out when your A/C has broken down, so we’ll keep your car cool no matter what.
Most A/C systems start with a chemical called refrigerant, which is a gas. That gas gets turned to liquid by the compressor, which releases a lot of heat and makes the liquid hot. Then the liquid is cooled while still under pressure in the condenser. When the cooled liquid is released into a non-pressurized chamber, it becomes a gas and takes back in the heat it released. However, since the refrigerant already lost its heat, it cools down and makes the air around it cold, giving you air conditioning.
Air conditioning can develop leaks, which is a problem for a pressurized system. These leaky parts generally need to be replaced, and when that happens, we have a full stock of OEM parts for you. These genuine Volkswagen parts are the parts your car was designed to use, which is why they’re the same as the parts put in your vehicle during assembly. With Volkswagen parts in your A/C, you know your car is giving you the best quality possible.
Our experts know your car from headlights to tailpipe, and they’ll make sure that your A/C is in the best shape it can be. That means they’ll check for leaks, they’ll lubricate the compressor, and anything else that will ensure your A/C is functioning at its maximum. These certified technicians are Volkswagen-certified, which means they’ve studied Volkswagen vehicles and know how to best take care of them.
