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


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 AutoChoice Service Center, 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.

Reviews

These guys are great. They let me know I didn't need my front brakes replaced just yet, only the rear brakes. They informed me that there was a recall issued for my SUV that I would want to get set up with the dealership and printed the info I would need to do that. They told me about other things that could be issues for me down the road and estimates on those issues. They have Definitely earned my business and my recommendation! Thank you guys!!

Some of the nicest guys in town. I can't rave about them enough. They got my car in fast, got it looked at, fixed, and back to me within the day. As a young college student I often find that auto places try and take advantage of me. Here they treated me with respect and clearly explained everything that was fixed. They gave me an itemized list of the all maintenance and charges as well. I definitely will continue to be a customer here!
