Common Vehicle AC Problems
There are numerous variables that could cause your AC to break down or simply not work as well as it once did. These include:
- Clogged or leaking condensers
- Improper refrigerant levels
- Refrigerant cross-contamination
- Unresponsive pressure switches
- Damaged compressors
- Clutch problems
- Broken belts
- Moisture and debris-ridden filters
- Leaks in the AC system
- AC control head malfunction
While low refrigerant levels often contribute to diminished AC quality, our comprehensive inspection examines your entire AC system to identify any additional issues, allowing us to offer cost-effective solutions.
Importance of Professional AC Services
We strongly advise against attempting to "recharge" your AC yourself using store-bought DIY cans, as adding refrigerant unnecessarily or incorrectly can result in irreparable damage to your AC system. Fortunately, your AC system typically provides warning signs when it's struggling or on the verge of failure. Unusual sounds emanating from the vents or under the hood, unexplained odors permeating your vehicle (indicating potential bacteria buildup in the evaporator), and inconsistent temperatures from the AC vents are all common indications of AC problems.

With our vast experience and expertise, we have successfully resolved all types of AC system issues across various vehicle models.
