Why Replace

Replacing the accumulator / filter drier is an essential part of doing the job right.

  • The accumulator / filter drier acts as a filter by removing moisture and contaminates from the air conditioning system. Such contaminates cannot be removed by flushing, therefore replacing the accumulator / filter drier is essential. 
  • The absorption of moisture in the system is done through the use of a desiccant bag. A leaking or “open” system can cause the bag to become saturated within a few hours after being exposed to the atmosphere making the accumulator / filter drier ineffective. 
  • Replacement of the accumulator / filter drier is required to validate compressor warranty and must be replaced anytime the system is serviced.
