Auto A/C & Heating Services

Are you wishing that your vehicle's heat or air conditioning was as efficient as it was when you first purchased it? Thomsons Auto Repair Inc. in Kentwood, MI 49508 can get your vehicle's heating or A/C back to its original state, so you can drive in comfort.

Heating and AC systems may break eventually with usage, and hose pipes may clog and drip if not serviced, causing reduced efficiency heating and cooling capabilities. We can fix any problems you're experiencing and provide the regular maintenance necessary to keep your heating and A/C system operating at full performance!

Indications your A/C system may be having issues:

  • If your air conditioning blows only slightly cooler air compared to the exterior air
  • Air that blows in smells damp, musty, or like mildew and mold
  • Your cabin does not warm up in cold weather, or is just a little warmer than outside
  • The defroster takes longer than typical to operate, or does not operate
  • Your heater or A/C only functions when driving, not when idling, or quits blowing when the car is stationary
  • Your heating system blows cold air, or the air conditioning blows warm air
  • Low airflow even at the highest fan setting.

A comprehensive evaluation of heating and A/C system includes:

  • Examining the internal controls and blower
  • Checking radiator coolant operating temperature, hoses, pressure radiator cap and thermostat
  • Inspecting the compressor belt
  • Inspecting system and seals for leaks or various other damages
  • A cooling system pressure test
  • Verifying the A/C pressure meets manufacturer specifications
  • Measuring the interior vent air temperature



Our repair and maintenance services include:

Air Conditioning
Have you been sweltering in your vehicle lately? Perhaps your car's air conditioner isn't functioning properly. At Thomsons Auto Repair Inc. we have qualified service professionals who can fix your air conditioner. To have an air conditioning system serviced, repaired, or replaced by experts consider visiting Thomsons Auto Repair Inc.. You can also call us at 616-281-5150 with any questions relating to your vehicle's air conditioner.

Coolant System Flush
A car's air conditioning system contains a coolant which transfers excess heat from one part of the engine and finally loses it through the radiator fins. With time, the a/c coolant becomes old and dirty. The old coolant will negatively impact the system's performance. To make sure the system is working effectively, consider having a regular coolant system flush. A coolant flush is basic maintenance for your car's cooling system. Call 616-281-5150 or visit Thomsons Auto Repair Inc. in Kentwood, MI 49508 for all your coolant system flush and fill needs. Ensure maximum performance from your vehicle's heating and cooling systems today.

Belts
A fan belt, also known as a drive belt, is a belt connecting your car's engine to the front mounted accessories. The fan belt rotates the water pump and engine fan, which maintains a cool environment for the engine and its components. Sooner or later, your vehicle's fan belts will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Thomsons Auto Repair Inc. for all your vehicle's repair needs.

You not only have to get the belts replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the belts replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Thomsons Auto Repair Inc. today. The mechanics at Thomsons Auto Repair Inc. will thoroughly inspect your car's belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts.

Hoses
Hoses transfer coolant and antifreeze throughout the engine's cooling system (including the radiator). Sooner or later, your vehicle's hoses will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Thomsons Auto Repair Inc. for all your vehicle's repair needs.

You not only have to get the hoses replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the hoses replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Thomsons Auto Repair Inc. today. The mechanics at Thomsons Auto Repair Inc. will thoroughly inspect your car's hoses; replace all worn hoses; and adjust the installed hoses.

Radiators
Radiators are heat exchangers for cooling your car's internal combustion engine. A radiator cools the engine by circulating an engine coolant through the engine block - it then loses the heat to the atmosphere through radiation. A radiator has a set of tubes through which the engine coolant flows. Fins surround these tubes. When the radiator fails, the excess heat produced by the engine could damage the engine components. To prevent this from happening, have your radiator serviced regularly. To have your radiator needs handled by experts, visit Thomsons Auto Repair Inc. today.

Radiator Flush
A radiator is the part of your vehicle that keeps the engine cool and protects it from excessive heating. To be cool, the radiator needs to remain clean - always. With time, sludge, rust and other solid deposits build up inside your car's radiator. These make the cooling system become clogged and less effective. This in effect hurts your vehicle's performance. A regular radiator flush is enough to keep the system in shape. For this reason, make radiator flushing a part of your routine car maintenance schedule. For all your radiator flush needs, call 616-281-5150 or visit Thomsons Auto Repair Inc. today.

    Great customer service, always making sure customers are satisfied. They take time to show and explain the repairs. Very down to earth family oriented. Definitely NOT your typical auto shop. Clean bathroom, and beautiful, nice option for snacks or drink and free fresh popcorn while you wait!


  • -Ryan L.

    If I could give more than 5 stars I would. These guys are absolutely great!! They do not nickel and dime you, and they are very honest with their work and recommendations. Had some exhaust work done, and I thought it would take them 3-4 days, judging by how many cars were in the parking lot...nope...done the next day in the afternoon. I was very impressed...price was as quoted with no additional "surprises" in the repair...I found my forever repair place...Thanks to all at Thomson's!!!


  • -Alexander W.

    I took my 2009 Jeep Wrangler into Thomson's, with a whole shopping list of things that went wrong with the vehicle. Shawn and his team worked tirelessly to make sure that my vehicle was fixed properly and quickly, to accommodate my timelines. The customer service was outstanding, and their knowledge behind their work is even better. I could not be more satisfied with the work they have done, and I would recommend them before any other shop around!
