At BERARDS AUTOMOTIVE in Mandeville, La. all A/C systems are diagnosed and tested by ASE-master certified technician Tye Berard. He has also completed training and testing through EPA-approved A/C programs. Tye has been working on automobiles since 1984; opening BERARDS’S AUTOMOTIVE at 723 Girod street, Old Mandeville, in 1998. We have repaired thousand’s of air conditioning systems over the years. He will test and diagnose your A/C problems and determine what needs to be repaired.

Some common A/C problems are:

  • Hot air blowing out vents
  • Air not cold enough
  • Lack of air pressure
  • Noise coming from blower
  • A/C wont blow at all

The number one problem we find is low refrigerant. Air conditioner systems are filled with refrigerant which is responsible for the cold air that comes out your vents. Over time A/C O-rings, hoses and seals wear out – and refrigerant leaks out, therefore your A/C stops cooling. The refrigerant in the a/c system has a special compressor oil mixed with it. When the refrigerant leaks out, so does the compressor oil. This special refrigerant oil lubricates and cools the A/C parts. When enough refrigerant and refrigerant oil leaks out, the parts don’t get cooled and lubricated and they wear out. Addressing problems early can save on more extensive and costly repairs down the road.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]
