A/C problems in vehicles

There are a number of reasons why AC systems can malfunction. The following are a few:

  • Clogged or leaky condenser
  • Refrigerant level is out of accuracy
  • Refrigerant combination
  • Pressure-resistant switches
  • Compressor broken
  • Problem with the brakes
  • Belt broken
  • Debris-ridden, dusty filters
  • Leaky air conditioners
  • Trouble with the control head

Often, AC quality is impacted by low refrigerant levels. Your AC system will be fitted with low refrigerant and cost-effective solutions by our technicians.

Recharging your AC with DIY cans from the store is not recommended. Adding refrigerant incorrectly or unnecessarily can irreparably damage your AC system.

If the AC unit is failing or struggling, it usually warns you.

The following signs indicate an AC problem in a vehicle:

  • There may be unusual sounds coming from a vent or hood if a central air conditioner is malfunctioning.
  • Bacteria may be present in your EVAPORATOR. Besides fast food and gym clothes, it may include other items.
  • It is possible that your compressor is malfunctioning if you have inconsistent temperatures.
