Auto A/C & Heating Services

If the breeze from those open windows just isn't cutting it, come by our shop in Owatonna, MN 55060 to get an expert opinion on what we can do to fix your auto A/C or heating problems. We offer affordable prices and guaranteed workmanship. Contact us at 507-451-8678, so we can help you drive in comfort.

Why maintaining your AC System is very important:
Heating and A/C systems may break eventually with usage, hose pipes may clog and drip if not serviced, causing reduced efficiency heating and cooling capabilities. Regular maintenance will keep your AC system operating at peak 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 Ron's Repair Service 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 Ron's Repair Service. You can also call us at 507-451-8678 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 507-451-8678 or visit Ron's Repair Service in Owatonna, MN 55060 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 Ron's Repair Service 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 Ron's Repair Service today. The mechanics at Ron's Repair Service 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 Ron's Repair Service 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 Ron's Repair Service today. The mechanics at Ron's Repair Service 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 Ron's Repair Service 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 507-451-8678 or visit Ron's Repair Service today.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Friends recommended so I took our car for a oil change and tire rotation. They did a good job! Bonus is the beautiful Irish setters!


-Patty W.

Ron's has always been fair and honest, they do a great job. It's the only place I trust taking my car to.


-Jenifer S.

I have driven my car back to the dealership where I bought the car from for years which was over an hour away because I never felt I received the honest and straightforward auto service I deserved in Owatonna. Out of a real sense of urgency I gave Ron's Repair a try and I can't tell you how pleased I have been with the customer service as well as the auto repairs, maintenance and straight answers about what I really need to take care and what can wait. I highly recommend you give Ron's a chance to take care of your auto repairs needs they won't disappoint.


-Lynn S.

I was quite impressed with my first experience with Rons repair. My car just came out of warranty and I was having some issues with my A/C. Rons was able to get my car in right away and had it fixed that same day, but what really made them stand out is I had a cabin air filter in my backseat that I was going to install at some point and when I picked up my car they had informed me that they went ahead and installed that filter for me. I was not expecting that, saved me the hassle of doing it and it compelled me to give them a great review. All my service work will from now on be going to Rons!!


-Reid B.

I have been going to Ron's for over five years. I have found their service to be excellent and they never do anything that is not necessary. They are honest and do a great job. I would recommend them to anyone in my family or any of my friends. Rons Repair rocks!


-Jody S.

Ron and the crew have always been there for our family when our vehicles need attention, at times with short notice even. Great communication, honesty, and good pricing.


-Cassandra Z.

They like dogs, I like dogs. I like a working car, they make that happen above and beyond. And I even got a flower when my car was all done. What lady doesn't love that?


-Teana W.

Great service and friendly staff. Not to mention there are DOGS!!


-MN Y.

Great, (and honest), service at an awesome price! Mike and the boys at Ron's will take of you and all of your vehicles! They fit me into the schedule on short notice and have a loaner for me to use while they work. Thanks Mike!


-Wade W.

I walked in overwhelmed from a crash on the highway, from out of town and another 2 hours away from home. They looked at the car and made sure it was drivable until I could get it home for the night. He got me chocolate and water to calm my nerves and made sure I was ok to drive before I left. Would recommend his shop to anyone, wheather you’re just driving through or a local.
