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 Denners Garage, 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.

what our customers say

Steve is a great guy first off, very knowledgeable and more than reasonably priced. I will go there for all my vehicle needs.

The most honest and trustworthy mechanic I've ever dealt with. Not to mention quick, helpful, and friendly.

If you need a mechanic who is honest, look no further. I called him because our tire was making an odd sound and he said to bring it over. He then came outside and proceeded to get on his hands and knees in the parking lot, crawling around our Jeep and diagnosed the issue. He had no space in the garage that day so he said we could drop it off the next morning. There is even a key drop box outside for security! His prices are beyond reasonable and the shop is tidy. I hesitated to review him because, honestly, it's hard finding a trustworthy mechanic and, quite frankly, I don't want to share.
K

Great job, friendly staff, timely details. Just wish to know an estimate before job is done. Will be coming back with both vehicle's.

Steve Denner (owner and master mechanic) is a fantastic human being. Always incredibly fair and will make sure you don't leave his shop without being taken care of. Great shop and great team of people he has working there with him, they won't let you down.
