Vehicle Air Conditioning Problems
It is possible for AC systems to malfunction for a variety of reasons. Below are some examples:
- CLOGGED OR LEAKING CONDENSER
- LEVELS IN THE REFRIGERATOR ARE INACCURATE
- REFRIGERANT COMBINATION
- CONTROLS THAT RESIST PRESSURE
- COMPRESSOR FAILURE
- A BELT HAS BEEN BROKEN
- FILTERS RUBBER-RIDDEN AND DUSTY
- THE AIR CONDITIONER IS LEAKING
- HEAD CONTROL PROBLEM
A low refrigerant level can compromise the quality of an air conditioner. It is our goal to provide you with an AC system that uses low refrigerants and is cost-effective. Store-bought DIY cans shouldn't be used for recharging your AC. Incorrectly or unnecessarily adding refrigerant can damage your AC system irreparably.
