A&E Automotive Solutions understands the importance of staying cool and comfortable while driving. We offer comprehensive auto AC repair and service in Waxahachie, TX.

Driving in a hot car can be uncomfortable and even dangerous, especially during the hot summer months in Texas. Thus, your vehicle’s air conditioner is critical in keeping you cool and comfortable in such conditions.

But your car’s aircon can malfunction or break down anytime—you wouldn’t want this to happen when you badly need the air conditioning. Thanks to regular AC service and timely repairs, you can prevent these inconvenient breakdowns and more costly repairs. 

Components of an AC System

Understanding the various components of an auto AC system can help vehicle owners identify potential problems and understand the importance of regular AC service and maintenance. The major components of an auto AC system include:


The compressor is the heart of the AC system. It compresses and circulates refrigerant gas, which is responsible for cooling the air.


The condenser is located in front of the radiator and is responsible for releasing the heat the refrigerant gas absorbs from the evaporator.


The evaporator is located inside the dashboard and is responsible for absorbing heat from the air inside the vehicle. It cools the air by evaporating the refrigerant.

Expansion valve

The expansion valve controls the refrigerant’s flow into the evaporator, regulating the amount of cooling.

Receiver-drier or accumulator

The receiver-drier or accumulator is a filter that removes moisture and debris from the refrigerant gas before it enters the compressor.


This gas absorbs heat from the air and carries it to the condenser, where it is released. The most commonly used refrigerant in modern AC systems is R134a, with R1234yf as the latest and more eco-friendly option.

Hoses and pipes

These are used to transport the refrigerant and oil between the different components of the AC system.

Electrical components

Electrical components (such as relays, switches, and wiring) are used to control and regulate the operation of the AC system.
