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? Auto Specialties of Lake Norman in Huntersville, NC 28078 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 Auto Specialties of Lake Norman 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 Auto Specialties of Lake Norman. You can also call us at 704-201-7334 with any questions relating to your vehicle's air conditioner.

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 Auto Specialties of Lake Norman 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 Auto Specialties of Lake Norman today. The mechanics at Auto Specialties of Lake Norman will thoroughly inspect your car's belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts.

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 704-201-7334 or visit Auto Specialties of Lake Norman in Huntersville, NC 28078 for all your coolant system flush and fill needs. Ensure maximum performance from your vehicle's heating and cooling systems today.

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 Auto Specialties of Lake Norman 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 Auto Specialties of Lake Norman today. The mechanics at Auto Specialties of Lake Norman will thoroughly inspect your car's hoses; replace all worn hoses; and adjust the installed hoses.

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 704-201-7334 or visit Auto Specialties of Lake Norman today.

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 Auto Specialties of Lake Norman today.

Summerize Your Vehicle
It's important to prepare your car for the perils of summer - heat, dust, traffic jams - which increase the likelihood of a breakdown. At Auto Specialties of Lake Norman in Huntersville, our technicians can perform the necessary preventive maintenance to get your car ready for summer. These are some of the recommended services:

  • Check the battery
  • Change the fluids
  • Examine the belts and hoses
  • Check climate and coolant systems

What Our Customers Are Saying

Once again, Bert and his team have taken great care of my family! My son's transmission was acting up, and he got me right in on short notice in order to check it out. My son was in and out in no time. I've been taking our automobiles to another place for over 20 years, but it's time to move our business to Auto Specialties of Lake Norman. Well done, Bert! Five stars!


-Todd N.

Bert and his boys at Auto Specialties of LKN were terrific with my 2008 X5 with over 100,000 miles. I had a front end noise that resulted in replacing the front struts and left axle, and when that didn't solve the problem they dug in and found the culprit. They're problem solvers! Thanks guys.


-Tom S.

Great experience. I had previously received a couple different quotes from other companies that seemed unusually high. Bert gave me a very reasonable quote on the repair. While I had been told by others that would need 1-2 days to fix, ASLN was able to complete in one day. was nice to have the loner car to use during that time. Very happy with service. would certainly recommend. Thank you.


-CL Davidson

Burt and his staff always go above and beyond. They explain every repair detail to you. They are friendly, courteous and do excellent work for a reasonable price. I have to say I was also impressed with their clean and comfortable "waiting area". I highly recommend Auto Specialties of Lake Norman to anyone and everyone!


-Laura

This morning, I drove 20 minutes past 4-5 auto shops to come to Auto Specialties of Lake Norman because I read such positive reviews. I have to tell you this was the best decision! The past 3 weeks I was having to jump start my car multiple times a day, and believed it was battery. I got a new battery installed and still happening, so I thought it must be alternator. I arrived at Auto Specialties for 1st time and they QUICKLY diagnosed that it was ONLY a bolt missing from the battery connection. Thus he didn't charge me anything -- the trust and honesty of the owner was beyond impressive and earned my business for life!


-Josh

I was treated with great customer service and was contacted promptly after leaving my vehicle to be looked over. I received a phone call and was given information on exactly how and when they would be able to get my car back in working order. I was given an extremely fair price and I was surprised by how quickly I could expect to have my car back. I have been in the Charlotte area for a little over a year and had still not found a reliable mechanic - I think I have found that in Auto Specialties of Lake Norman. Their customer service goes above what I have come to expect for my auto services.


-Anna R.

My daughter lives in Charlotte and had some issues with her car. After going to a dealership, they gave her an estimate for repairs. We wanted a second opinion, and my nephew gave us Auto Specialties info. We called and spoke to Bert. My daughter took her car and we had it back in two days after they replaced valve cover gaskets and the ABS modulator for the brakes. Bert is very nice and honest, and his rates beat the dealership prices. We were amazed to get the car back so quickly, and they have earned our business for our daughter's car, who lives 2 1/2 hours away from us. They are wonderful!!


-Brian

My daughter's AC started having problems today, and she has a beach trip planned. I told Bert, and he worked me in right away, even on a Friday. He spent time trouble shooting and figured out the problem. I was in and out in about 30 minutes. AC is cold and ready for the beach trip thanks to Bert. Great service!


-Todd C.

I have been using this shop for a few months now and this is become my #1 go to place for repairs. They are professional, do what is right to fix your car. Price quotes are accurate. Most of all they are very honest and take time to show you what is wrong and fix it right the first time.


-Robert W.

I did my BMW 328i tune-up here, and I can say: This place is friendly, trustworthy and affordable!


-Slobodan N.

This has been the best repair experience I have had in years. They are friendly, have fair prices, quality work, and timely. Called they took in in immediately, had done in 3 hours. Will be going back.


-Robert W.

Great friendly staff. Fixed the brakes on our van and now we can have that safe driving feeling again. Great prices and honest people. We will be a repeat customer!


-Andrew

The guys at Auto Specialties of Lake Norman have always treated me fairly and do a great job. They will give you an honest quote and do it correctly. I recommend them to anyone!


-Gary K.

Bert and his team at Auto Specialties are fabulous. They are always prompt to respond to calls, courteous, and go out of their way to help. But most of all, I trust their opinion and the wonderful service they provide. I feel fortunate to have found them and I recommend them to anyone who is looking for car service.


-Hope P.

I recently moved to the Charlotte area about a month ago. I experienced a problem with my car. Being new to the area I had no information on a repair facility. I called the dealer and they quoted an outrageous price to repair my car. I call Auto Specialties of Lake Norman and spoke with Bert. He was very professional and understanding and most helpful. I had my car towed to the location and in less than 5 hours he called to advise that my car was ready. Great service!


-Lisa V.

This shop is great - they do solid work and stand firmly behind everything they do. I have had a couple of major problems with my 2007 BMW 335i, and Bert and the team have gotten my car back on the road each time. They are more than fair with their charges and are great to work with. I feel so fortunate that a friend referred me to them!


-David S.

Burt was great in being patient with us in dealing with my son's car, which blew the engine. He was gracious enough to diagnose it and not charge a storage fee while we made arrangements to have it towed and removed from his lot. Thank you!!


-Brennan Z.

Thanks Bert for excellent customer service! I will recommend to all of my friends and be back for sure!!


-Suzi T.

Exceptional service! Stood by price even though job parts costed more than the original quote. Offer big dealer professionalism in a small shop environment with straight forward pricing.


-Jason L.

We found Bert's shop while looking at reviews online and tried him out. We were very happy with the work that they did on my wife's 2003 BMW and have been back 3 more times and have saved hundreds of dollars with him as opposed to the BMW dealer. His work is great and has a great personality. My wife and I will continue to have them do our work. Bert is a great person.


-Brian F.

Let's hear it for small shops! These guys are expert mechanics, they're honest, and they aren't interested in pressing you for work your vehicle doesn't need. They know that their phenomenal service will earn your trust and repeat business. I'm moving out of Huntersville for a new job in South Charlotte, but by God I'm going to drive to Auto Specialties of Lake Norman whenever I need a mechanic; I'm sold for life.


-Clayton S.

Top rate service every time. Bert has been servicing my vehicles for years and I wouldn't go anywhere else!


-Patrick G.

Burt and the rest of the guys were great. My oil pressure switch on my jeep was broke and he only charged me 320 for the all fix. He even fixed a hose for me for free. One place was gonna charge me 900 for the fix. These guys are honest and do great work. I would recommend this place to everyone.


-James G.

Was looking for a place close to home for an inspection. Drove by and found Auto Specialties this morning. They got me right in and took care of it! Great customer service, no wait time, super easy and fast. Thanks for taking care of me!!


-Stacey C.

Best locally owned shop around, Bert and his team do a wonderful job of getting in and fixed and on your way again. i will continue to make the drive from China Grove to Huntersville for my automotive needs. I highly recommend you give them a try


-Stephen F.

Performed complete brake service on my Dodge truck. Part I requested to have replaced,I was told no need to spend the extra money, unless I just wanted the item replace. Great value and quality work.


-William T.

The guys here are absolutely awesome. They always make sure your Vehicle and family are safe. Top notch. It's the only place I will go for our vehicles.


-Jeff H.

Outstanding work and completed in a very timely manner. Fixed my van prior to making a 1400 mile round trip. Very pleased! I highly recommend Bert and the guys to everyone I know needing vehicle maintenance and repair.


-Justin M.

Bert is absolutely amazing and he always quickly resolves my automotive problems. I have taken my Infiniti to Bert several times and he quickly repairs my car at a fraction of the price the dealer is asking. I wouldn't take my baby to anyone else in NC. Thanks to the team at Auto Specialties of LN for looking out for my car and my pocket book. You guys are so awesome!!!!


-Nikita G.
