Heating Systems in Littleton, CO

The heater in your vehicle gets the heat from the engine. Water circulates through the engine, radiator,  and the heater core. Once the water heats up, the system blows the heat out into the cabin. Losing heat in the winter could freeze you out, especially if you lose the heat in your work truck.

You could also have a problem with the components under the dash, including the control panel, blend doors, fan, and blower motor control resistor. 

So, each year before winter hits, have the diesel repair specialists at Branch Automotive check your vehicle’s heating system.

Air Conditioning Systems in Littleton, CO

The air conditioning system is a little more complex. It consists of:

  • Condenser
  • Compressor
  • Drier/Accumulator
  • Expansion block/Orifice tube
  • Evaporator
  • High-pressure lines
  • Low-pressure lines
  • Fans (Depending on the application, your vehicle might have one or two electric fans.)

Factors that could cause your vehicle to require AC repair include:

  • Blockage in the system
  • Too much refrigerant
  • Too little refrigerant
  • Leaks
  • Bad compressor clutch
  • Bad compressor
  • Malfunctioning fan
  • Malfunctioning evaporator core
  • Malfunctioning control system
  • Bad air conditioning computer (whether separate or included with other functions)
  • Malfunctioning blower fan
  • Malfunctioning blower motor resistor
  • Electrical issues
  • Loose serpentine belt

If the AC system is low on refrigerant, we’ll add more of it and inject a dye into the system. The dye shows us where the leak is located. To tell whether the system has a blockage, we use gauges to measure the pressure in the system. Otherwise, we test the compressor, control unit, electrical and other components.
