Five Signs Your Car AC Needs To Be Serviced?

  • Your car air conditioning blows only slightly cooler than the outside air.
  • Your car's air conditioner blows air that smells like mildew and mold.
  • Your A/C only works while driving.
  • You have low airflow even at the highest fan setting.
  • Water condensing or dripping on your foot while driving.

Don't wait! If your car's A/C is working at reduced efficiency, it's worth a visit to Catalano Automotive Repair. Taking care of regular maintenance now can help you avoid more expensive AC repair costs down the road. Sometimes fixing a broken air conditioner is as simple and cost effective as adding new coolant.

Most truck and car air conditioning systems break eventually with usage. Hoses that feed the AC unit may crack, clog or drip if not serviced. Let us service your car or truck and keep your cooling system performing at its peak. Call us at 781-559-0721 to learn more about how we can get your air conditioning running again!

Catalano Automotive Repair in Needham for Recharging Your Freon Fast

In some instances when your car's air conditioning (AC) begins to lose its cooling power or fails to blow cool air, it may be time for a simple freon recharge.

Repair Your Car's AC Compressor
Let Catalano Automotive Repair Repair Your Car's AC Compressor

The cool air in your car is produced primarily by the compressor. The four main functions that your vehicle's compressor carries out include pressurizing the refrigerant to cool cabin air, monitoring and controlling temperature output, sensing temperature changes inside and outside the vehicle, and moving air to your car's AC condenser.

Repair Your Car's AC Condenser
Discover the Best AC Condenser Repair in Needham

Your vehicle's A/C condenser is usually located in the front of the radiator. When your AC compressor is pressurizing the refrigerant flows to the condenser to reduce the temperature and pressure. The condenser is a vital component in keeping your car's cabin temperature cool. It moves the cooled liquid refrigerant to the receiver/dryer or accumulator.

Testimonials

  • I was told by a dealer that there was no way to repair a run flat tire, and that all four tires needed to be replaced (for a 4x car). I was afraid that I was in for the cost of four wheels. Then I came to Catalono, and Shae (I am not sure how to spell his name) was able to fix the tire. Even he was very busy, he took the car and it was ready in less than 10 minutes. No wonder these guys earned my trust over the years that I have been coming there, and I have always been impressed by their work quality.

  • reviewiconVery Informative and Quick
    I could not have been more pleased with my interaction with Catalano Auto. The owner took it upon himself to list a few different tire options for me after I let him know what I was looking for. The work was done quickly and they even vacuumed the inside of my car without being asked, very cool! I will most certainly be going back there for any other needs that come up.

    Brakes, near Newton, MA
    I was very impressed by all the positive online comments for John and his Catalano Automotive Repair. I thus brought my Toyota to him about a year ago with some concern with the brakes. He did a quick check and said all looked fine - no need to do any replacement. A couple weeks ago, I brought the car to him again for maintenance and others. The whole process was efficient and John was very professional. He even offered the service to drop the car as I couldn't go there to pick it up before the New Year holiday. Definitely will be back again and recommend to others.

    John and his staff are always amazing! We've brought our cars here a few times and every time it's worked out very well. I had an issue once and the larger National chains were telling me I needed several things done and it was going to cost quite a bit. John checked the car out and said I didn't need half the work that they quoted. Honest, knowledgeable, fairly priced and is willing to explain the problem in a way you will understand if you don't happen to be proficient yourself in auto mechanics. No one wants their car in need of a repair but if you do, this is the place to come!

    Been a happy customer for years! John is honest, does an excellent job, and is the only reason my 20 year old car lasted as long as it did. I can't recommend him highly enough!

    John is a great mechanic. Needed new brakes on my Lexus he did them for considerably less than I was quoted from the Lexus dealership.
