Modern Auto Air of Ft Myers - Auto Air FAQ's

Here are the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions we get here at our shop.

How much is this going to cost?

Prices vary according to the parts, labor and machine time needed to complete the work. You will find our prices competitive and substantially lower than “Dealer” pricing. Estimates are always free and we will present you with a fair price backed by a solid warranty.

Do you guaranty your work?

Yes, all our worked is backed by a 1 year warranty for parts and labor. While we can’t warranty system components we don’t replace, we will do our best to recommend the proper repairs to give you years of trouble free service.

Does my A/C system need regular maintenance?

Normally your system will run for years with no regular maintenance but there are a few things you can do to keep your A/C system out of trouble. Keep all leaves and debris out from under the hood, this can find its’ way into your evaporator and promote corrosion of the aluminum parts.

Make sure your engine is not running hot, the heat transfer from the radiator can cause high pressure in your system and damage seals. Never use cans of “Freon” from the auto parts store, they will introduce moisture and air into the system which can damage your system. Always have your system recharged by a professional with the proper equipment for the job.

How long does an estimate take?

Most estimates are completed within 30 minuets or less.

How long will my repairs take?

Depending on the extent of the repairs, most jobs are completed in the same day many within 2-3 hours.

Do you accept service contracts and extended warranties?

Yes, We will act on your behalf to negotiate the best deal for you, many times eliminating your deductable. Can I supply my own parts?

We buy our parts in volume so there is generally no cost savings to you. We can’t warranty customer supplied parts but will consider using the on a case by case basis.

Can’t you get a cheaper part or a used one?

Cheaper parts are sometimes available but we don’t consider them as reliable as top quality brand name parts. Our reputation is as valuable to us as your vehicle is to you! The best quality work requires the best quality parts.

Our volume purchasing allows us to use the highest quality parts at the best possible price. We won’t install used parts as we value our reputation and can’t guaranty the reliability of used parts.

What about rebuilt parts?

Due to our volume buying power the average savings on using rebuilt over new is less than 10% of the entire job cost. We will used rebuilt parts only when no other option exist or at the customer request.

Can’t I just add “Freon” in a can from the auto parts store?

Yes, but system performance will suffer. For a system to be properly charged the exact volume of “Freon” must be determined by weight. The gauges on the “DIY” cans will never show your precise charge. They will also introduce air and moisture into the system which will create a corrosive reaction with the internal parts causing damage to your system.

There are many reasons you’re A/C system may not cool. We do not charge for estimates or trouble shooting your system. Before you spend any more money let us give you a professional opinion.

No cooling at idle or in traffic but cools fine on highway.

Usually a sign of poor air flow through the condenser but can also be caused by many component mal functions.
