The dog days of A/C repair

MACS members Marks Air of Tampa, Florida had a dog gone hard time with a recent repair job. It could have ended in a hairy situation but, we’ll pause the puns and get to the root of the issue.

According to Caroline Marks Acebedo, “This evaporator (pictured) was out of a ceiling mounted unit in the rear of a 2006 Sprinter 2500.”


“The customer owns a mobile dog grooming service.  I think we cleaned about 5 dogs worth of hair out of the A/C unit!  The unit does have a filter and the customer tries to vacuum the filter out each week. But, there was still a huge amount of dog hair on the evap. core and the blowers were caked with dog hair.  I would say she needs to let us clean the evaporator more often.”


Thanks, Caroline that looked like a ruff job.

  1. That sounds like quite the project! It’s amazing there was that much dog hair there. I imagine that the A/C wasn’t working like it should! I hope it all turned out well.
