Air Conditioning Repair For Cars and Trucks
Byrd Automotive Repair
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 Byrd 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 859-885-9121 to learn more about how we can get your air conditioning running again!

Repair Your Car's AC Compressor
Let Byrd 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.

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.

I had called around to many places for my repairs and some of these places were just so astronomical in pricing for a problem that I thought was electrical. Byrd had beaten every price that I was quoted by a lot. One company quoted me $400 just to find the issue. I couldn't imagine if I would have had to pay $400 for an issue that wouldn't even have been an electrical problem, on top of whatever else they would have charged me. Come to find out it was just my bad luck that things were going wrong all at once and had nothing to do with an electrical problem. Byrd fixed my issues, didn't overcharge, and got the job done in a timely manner. I knew nothing about Byrd and had never even heard of their shop but I am glad I called and took that leap for my repairs. Thank you! I plan to use them going forward for any other repairs I may need.
