  • Air Conditioning

    Summertime is just around the corner. It is important to have your vehicle’s air conditioner serviced before the weather gets hot. Diagnosing your vehicle’s air conditioning issues is best left to your automotive technician. Here are four of the most common signs of air conditioner system problems:

    The Air Conditioner Air Is Not Cool Enough
    There are many different potential causes for this problem such as low Freon levels, a faulty compressor or refrigerant leaks in the seals or hose connections. If your air conditioner has a leak, your local automotive technician may recommend that the O-rings, seals, and hoses are replaced before recharging your air conditioning unit.

    Intermittent Cooling
    If your air conditioner is intermittently blowing warm air and cool air, this is often due to air and moisture in the system. Your automotive technician would most likely recommend that your AC system be purged with a vacuum pump. If the purging does not fix the intermittent cooling issue, your vehicle may have an electrical issue that has to do with the compressor clutch or temperature sensor.

    Air Conditioner Noises
    Typically noises in an air conditioning system could be signs of a compressor problem. But a noisy AC unit could also be something as simple as rattling hoses and other AC parts. An automotive technician can test and verify whether or not your vehicle’s compressor is functioning properly.

    Bad AC Odor
    An air conditioning system that blows air that has a bad odor is usually as sign of bacteria in the evaporator. Bacteria in your AC system can cause health problems, so you’ll want to get this taken care of as soon as possible.
