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

Beauregard Transmissions

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 Beauregard Transmissions, 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

I've took my daughters car all over town for an oil change and every time I get the oil changed they tell me we have a large oil leak. Well I finally took it to Beauregard Transmission and they told me I didn't have an oil leak that the oil filter was not put on right. Well problem solved quick and easy. Needless to say I don't need to drive all over town any more. I go to Beauregard Transmission when I need work done. A+ in my book.
