AC Condensers

If you are driving down the road in Escondido and your AC fails, it may be your condenser. The condenser looks like a large black square and is usually mounted in front of the radiator. Like radiators and evaporators, condensers are constructed as a series of tubes with fins around them. But unlike an evaporator, whose job is to absorb heat, the condenser's job is to release the heat your refrigerant absorbed while it was flowing through the evaporator, very much the same way the radiator releases the heat from engine coolant that the coolant absorbed while it was flowing through the engine. A car's condenser also removes unwanted debris from the cooling system.

First time dealing with AA was great. Got us in for a service same day (with no prior heads up) and took care of a laundry list of things for us on our 2017 Colorado. Experienced shop staff with quality customer service. Thank you Daniel & Team!
