Your vehicle’s air conditioning system cools, purifies, and circulates air throughout the vehicle to promote a comfortable cabin environment and prevent driver fatigue. The air conditioning system operates in a continuous cycle, sending refrigerant through a sealed system to remove hot air from the cabin compartment. As the refrigerant flows through the air conditioning system, it is turned from a hot gas into a liquid, which is then cooled, turned into a gas again, and vaporized in order to absorb heat from the cabin. At the end of the cycle, the cool air is blown into the cabin. This process is made possible by the drive belt, which drives the compressor, the main component of the air conditioning system. The compressor works in concert with the condenser, evaporator, and other parts. If any of these components cease to operate efficiently, the functionality of the entire system is at risk. When the performance of your vehicle’s air conditioning diminishes, allow us to identify and solve the issue through an AC diagnostic.
If your air conditioning system creates an unusual amount of noise while running, produces an abnormal odor, or blows stale air instead of cool air, then you may need the assistance of our service staff. During an AC diagnostic, we will inspect the belts for cracks, the compressor for leaks, the electrical components for connectivity, and the entire system for low pressure. Our service staff may also evacuate and recharge your system with refrigerant according to your manufacturer’s specifications. During an air conditioning system diagnostic, we will use professional leak detection tools to locate the problem plaguing your system. Watch for early symptoms for an air conditioning system in need of repair, and contact us online or call us when you are in need of service.

What’s the difference between Repairs and Maintenance?
Repairs are services that are required or necessary when something on your vehicle is not working properly or may have worn to the point where a replacement is required to maintain the performance of your vehicle.
Maintenance is the routinely scheduled services, inspections and part replacements that your vehicle manufacturer recommends based on the age or mileage of your vehicle.
The schedule for performing these maintenance services varies from vehicle to vehicle. You will find the schedule for your vehicle in your owner's manual. Following this schedule is the best way to make sure your vehicle is performing as it should.
All BIG O Tire dealers in BC pride themselves on being able to provide the best customer service and the highest quality service work available anywhere. To support that, a service warranty on workmanship, service and/or parts is provided by each independent BIG O Tires dealership. These warranties vary from one aspect of our business to another - Tire warranties are different from Wheel warranties, and each of these differ from warranties on Service work performed during the course of a repair or maintenance on your vehicle. Ask your BIG O dealer at the time of purchase of these products and/or services what the warranty period is and what is covered under it.
