Replace Your Car's AC Thermal Expansion Valve or Orifice Tube

Owen Chester Enterprises Inc

Your car or truck's AC system is under extreme pressure and the thermal expansion valve or orifice tube monitors the amount of pressure and the temperature of your A/C system. It calculates the precise amount of refrigerant that can safely go into the evaporator. A failing expansion valve or orifice tube often causes a vehicle's air conditioner to blow hot air.

Replace or Repair

  • Expansion Valves: Too much refrigerant causes your evaporator to get too cold whereas too little refrigerant would result in inadequate cooling. The expansion valve is a complex valve that regulates refrigerant flow. This process of metering the refrigerant adjusts the flow according to the temperature of the refrigerant in the evaporator coil. Talk to one of the pro mechanics at Owen Chester Enterprises Inc, as this part can be replaced on its own and does not require the entire replacement of the AC assembly.
  • Orifice Tubes: Unlike the expansion valve, the orifice tube is a simple fixed device with no moving parts. It therefore cannot vary the flow of refrigerant into the evaporator, but rather causes a permanent restriction in the system. However, like the expansion valve the orifice tube regulates refrigerant flow through the system and filters debris which may come through in its screen. Often fixing a "bad orifice tube" requires replacing the entire evaporator assembly.

Testimonials

Excellent service. Owen Enterprise has fixed two different vehicles for me in a very efficient and satisfying manner. Explained problem, fixed, and notified via text message when cars were ready. Such a relief to find a mechanic that is honest and willing to charge only what needs to be repaired. Costs for both vehicles were very reasonable. I would highly recommend Owen if you are looking for a good mechanic! Also, very easy to find.
