Solving Car Air Conditioning Problems

Although many people regard car air conditioning units as a luxury, the truth is the majority of cars are now sold with air conditioning fitted at the factory. People travel for longer periods of time and personal comfort within a vehicle is becoming more and more important.

Unfortunately, many vehicle manufacturers don’t include servicing your car air con system in their standard maintenance programme, so it’s important to know whether or not your air conditioning unit is working normally, in order to avoid paying unnecessary and over-the-top fees for work and parts.

Probably one of the most common air con problems is that the unit installed in your car is not cooling the air properly.

Car air conditioning systems work by forcing the hotter air within a vehicle outside, thus lowering the inside temperature, cooling, drying, and clarifying the air in the process.

Troubleshooting your car air conditioning restoration difficulties can save you money at the auto workshop. You potentially can even be able to fix the a/c yourself.

When the outside temperature starts climbing, you probably use your air conditioner more often. That increased use also increases the chances of something going wrong. If the a/c in your car is not blowing out cold air, things can get uncomfortable pretty quickly. Before you visit a car air conditioning repair specialist, take a few steps to see if you can fix the problem yourself. Even if you cannot fix it, you will be able to better explain the problem to the professional you eventually hire.

The first step in the troubleshooting process is learning the basics of the a/c system. The system cools air by compressing a refrigerant called R-134a. Older systems use r-12 Freon. The refrigerant carries heat from inside the car to the condenser. The condenser changes the refrigerant from a gas to a liquid, which expels the heat. Essentially, air is blown across a very cold liquid.

Check for Leaks

Leaks are often easy to identify, but they are very difficult to fix. Most automobile supply stores carry a bright dye that can be injected into the a/c system, which will reveal leaks. The can will have instructions for use.
