Research on AC Compressor for Chevrolet Equinox
When the weather outside is too hot and humid to roll down the windows for relief, you usually turn on the air conditioner, but if you only get slightly cooled or warm air blowing from the vents, it's likely that you need an auto AC compressor replacement. This will restore your air conditioner's ability to cool the air entering the cabin. If you live anywhere it gets warm at any time of the year, you will need to have a working air conditioner in your car, and replacing the AC compressor could restore your driving comfort.
What an AC Compressor Does
Your Chevy Equinox's AC compressor is the heart of the air conditioning system. It pressurizes the refrigerant, which allows it to flow through the system and reduce the air temperature in your cabin. Without being pressurized, the refrigerant cannot do its job as it should, and it cannot cool the air. Signs of a failing AC compressor include the air not being cooled when the AC is turned on and noises coming from under the hood only when you are running the air conditioner. If you experience any of these Chevy Equinox AC problems, it's time to consider getting a new compressor.
Chevy Equinox Air Conditioner Recall
You may have heard about an air conditioner recall for the Chevy Equinox. Some models of 2010 Chevy Equinox have been recalled due to the window defrosting system not working. Because the defrosting system is tied to the air conditioner, this recall does tie to your vehicle's compressor. The problem with the vehicles in the recall is the software governing the heating, cooling, and defrosting controls. At random times, all of these systems as well as the radio and dash lights could stop working. If you need the defroster to properly see at such a time, it could reduce your visibility, resulting in an accident. Take your car to the dealer to get a replacement central console computer module to remedy the issue. This is one instance where a non-functioning air conditioner is not the fault of your compressor.
AC Compressor Replacement Cost for a Car
The price you pay for a new air conditioner compressor on your vehicle is cheaper than the numerous sets of new clothes you will have to buy during the summer from driving around in the sweltering heat. For a 2005 Chevy Equinox AC compressor and recharge, you can expect to spend anywhere from $1157.20 to $1383.81. This includes an AC refrigerant recharge, which is usually done whenever the compressor is replaced. It also factors in the labor costs your mechanic is most likely to charge you. The difference in prices is due to the variations in price service technicians charge on an hourly basis.
