Common Issues With Vehicle Air Conditioning
Several factors can cause your AC to fail or stop working as well as it once did. These include:
- Having a clogged or leaking condenser
- The level of refrigerant is incorrect
- Contamination of refrigerant
- The pressure switch is not responding
- Having a damaged compressor
- Having problems with your clutch
- A filter that is riddled with moisture and debris
- Air conditioning system leaks
- Problems with AC control heads
It is common for AC quality to be diminished because of low refrigerant levels. But no matter what, we will inspect your whole AC system to determine if low refrigerant is the only problem, and offer cost-effective solutions if there are other problems.
You should not attempt to "recharge" your AC yourself with a DIY can from the store. You can irreparably damage your air conditioner if you add refrigerant incorrectly or unnecessarily.
Signs of AC Failure in Vehicles Include:
- SOUND: Your AC may be failing if it makes unusual noises from the vents or from under the hood.
- SMELL: If your vehicle has an odor that you haven't been able to explain, it may be a bacterial buildup in the evaporator.
- FEELING: If your AC blows inconsistent temperatures, your compressor may be having bigger problems.
