The Basics Behind Hybrid A.C. Service at Auto Sense Auto Repair & Tire Center

There are over 1.5 million Toyota hybrid vehicles in North America (and well over 2 million hybrids total, including Toyota and other brands). Even though these numbers represent perhaps less than 1% of the total North America vehicle population, it’s evident that hybrids are here to stay, and their population will increase. Based on this, it’s time to become familiar with A/C systems in hybrids. Before attempting any service to the A/C system, you need to be aware of important battery voltage concerns. Remember, hybrids don’t feature a traditional 12-volt battery alone; a high voltage (HV) battery pack is present that, in the case of the Prius, contains from 201 to 273 volts. It’s vital to be familiar with the power system before attempting any service work. Auto Sense Auto Repair & Tire Center has highly skilled staff who are fully trained in servicing hybrid A.C. Systems for a variety of hybrid vehicles .

Why Should You Have Hybrid A.C. Service Performed at Auto Sense Auto Repair & Tire Center?

Like most aspects of car maintenance, treating a problem with your hybrid vehicle’s air conditioning system early can help prevent major repairs. For example, an air conditioning system operating on low refrigerant due to a leak will eventually damage the compressor. Replacing or repairing the compressor can be more expensive than sealing the leak and refilling the refrigerant. Some symptoms to beware of regarding a faulty air conditioning system include an inoperative fan or blower, an unusual amount of noise during regular operation, and, of course, reduced cooling capability. Stale smelling air is another sign that something is wrong with your vehicle’s air conditioner. A clogged compressor, evaporator, or condenser can contribute to the failure of the AC system, as can clogged expansion valves. Routine maintenance is important and can help you avoid costly AC repairs.

We proudly service the Hybrid A.C. Service needs of customers in Millersville, MD, Severn, MD, Severna Park, MD and other surrounding areas.

Hybrid Air Conditioning Service: Some Hybrid air conditioning compressors are electrically driven instead of driven from a belt. Because the inner windings of the compressor are sitting in the compressor oil, it is essential to use high dielectric (non-conductive) properties. MACS (Mobile Air Conditioning Society) says as little as 1% contamination can ruin the compressor. These vehicle require a machine that is J2788H equivalent. We at Auto Sense have a dedicated Air Conditioning J2788H for Hybrid Vehicles only. This eliminates the possibility of contamination.
