Process of Servicing Your A/C
Like your vehicle’s engine, your vehicle’s A/C is made up of several different components. The first step a service tech would do when performing an A/C service would be to visually inspect the different components of the system to see if there are any obvious issues. Then the tech will generally try out the A/C to check its performance and make sure everything is working in a certain way. Before any work on your system will be done, the tech will go over with you any issues that your system may have, and any costs involved with the repair.
Importance of a Well-Maintained A/C
Many people underestimate just how important the A/C is until it stops working. Even with mild temperatures, the cabin of a vehicle can get very hot extremely fast. Having your A/C in proper working order is paramount to driving comfortably. Usually, if you catch any issues with your A/C early enough, it will most likely be easier and therefore cheaper to fix. But common issues with A/C units, if left unattended, can cause major more expensive problems in the long run. Sometimes it could be as simple as being low on refrigerant. Refrigerant is easy to replace, but if you go too long with low levels of refrigerant, it can keep your compressor from cooling off properly and eventually can be damaged to the point you will need a replacement.
Signs Your A/C isn’t Working Properly
If your A/C isn’t working properly or is on its way to a full breakdown, there are usually signs that come before any major damage is done. There could be many reasons for the following issues, but it is always to keep an eye on your A/C before a small problem becomes a big problem. Here are three major signs that your vehicle’s A/C isn’t working properly:
- Strange smells: There is usually one major cause if you begin to smell foul odors when the A/C is running, and that is mold. Mold can be caused by several different factors, all of which should be fixed as soon as possible.
- Blowing hot air: If you notice hot air coming from the vents when it should be blowing cold, this could be a big red flag. Usually, this could mean you have a refrigerant leak or a blown compressor, both of which should be serviced.
- Weak airflow: This could mean your blower motor is malfunctioning, mold or debris buildup in the cabin air filter that is restricting airflow, or some sort of restriction in the evaporator core.
