Five Signs Your Car AC Needs To Be Serviced?
- Your car air conditioning blows only slightly cooler than the outside air.
- Your car's air conditioner blows air that smells like mildew and mold.
- Your A/C only works while driving.
- You have low airflow even at the highest fan setting.
- Water condensing or dripping on your foot while driving.
Don't wait! If your car's A/C is working at reduced efficiency, it's worth a visit to Das Performance. Taking care of regular maintenance now can help you avoid more expensive AC repair costs down the road. Sometimes fixing a broken air conditioner is as simple and cost effective as adding new coolant.
Most truck and car air conditioning systems break eventually with usage. Hoses that feed the AC unit may crack, clog or drip if not serviced. Let us service your car or truck and keep your cooling system performing at its peak. Call us at 540-699-0558 to learn more about how we can get your air conditioning running again!

In some instances when your car's air conditioning (AC) begins to lose its cooling power or fails to blow cool air, it may be time for a simple freon recharge. Recharging your freon is often a fast and inexpensive repair that can help you beat the summer heat. But leaking freon may be caused by a cracked hose or seal. It is often an indicator that a more significant repair is needed.

Repair Your Car's AC Compressor
Let Das Performance Repair Your Car's AC Compressor
The cool air in your car is produced primarily by the compressor. The four main functions that your vehicle's compressor carries out include pressurizing the refrigerant to cool cabin air, monitoring and controlling temperature output, sensing temperature changes inside and outside the vehicle, and moving air to your car's AC condenser.

Your vehicle's A/C condenser is usually located in the front of the radiator. When your AC compressor is pressurizing the refrigerant flows to the condenser to reduce the temperature and pressure. The condenser is a vital component in keeping your car's cabin temperature cool. It moves the cooled liquid refrigerant to the receiver/dryer or accumulator.

The Thermal Expansion Valve or Orifice Tube monitors the amount of pressure and temperature of your A/C system to calculate the precise amount of refrigerant that can safely go into the evaporator. Uneven pressure can allow unwanted moisture to accumulate in a car or truck's AC system.
Das Performance and EAG Performance (shout out to Moe) are the only two places you should ever take your car into if you live in Fredericksburg or if you planned on making a trip to here. Everyone at Das Performance from the front office to the hard working mechanics in the garage are all excellent from top to bottom. They will let you bring your own oil and oil filter for your oil change and they cost a nominal fee for labor (and they deserve more). The same can be said for other tasks like brake pads and rotors replacement as I was able to bring my own parts for my Mercedes and, again, they charged a simple labor fee. Overall I highly recommend Das Performance and want to thank all of the hard working people behind this excellent shop 100%. TLDR You can trust your car here at Das Performance. Thank you very much.
Great job and fair price. I like the automated process for authorizing repairs and paying the invoice.
Excellent mechanics and the service is top notch. Trent the owner went above and beyond and Denver did a great job for us.
