Stay Cool and Comfortable All Year Long
If you’ve ever experienced AC issues in your car or truck, you know
how uncomfortable driving can be, especially in the midst of summer. If
you turn your AC all the way up and it still isn’t offering relief
from the heat,
there’s a reason. Don’t settle for driving with the windows down, sweating from the
humidity and sun. At Christian Brothers Automotive, we specialize in automotive
AC repair and can help you get back to travelling comfortably again.
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 Condenser
- Improper Refrigerant Level
- Refrigerant Cross-Contamination
- Unresponsive Pressure Switches
- Damaged Compressor
- Clutch Problems
- Broken Belt
- Moisture and Debris-Ridden Filters
- Leaks in the AC System
- AC Control Head Malfunctions
Many times, diminished AC quality is due to low refrigerant levels. However,
we will inspect your entire AC system to determine if low refrigerant
is the only culprit, and offer cost-effective solutions if we find additional issues.
We do not recommend attempting to “recharge” your AC yourself
with a DIY can from the store. Adding refrigerant unnecessarily or incorrectly
can cause irreparable damage to your AC system.
Occasionally, your AC system will usually warn you when it’s struggling
or about to fail.
Common Vehicle AC warning signs:
Sound: If your AC is making unusual noises through the vents or under the hood,
it may be failing.
Smell: If your vehicle has taken on an unexplained odor, it could be more than
the three-day old fast food or used gym clothes in your back seat. Your
evaporator could be full of bacteria build up.
Feeling: If your AC is blowing inconsistent temperatures, you could be facing bigger
problems with your compressor.
