Does Your A/C Need Service?

Have you noticed a lack of air coming from the vents? Do you feel like the air is cool, but not ice-cold? You’re likely dealing with an A/C system issue. Although you’ll need professional help to identify and fix the problem, it is useful to gain an understanding of what might have caused it. Here are just a few reasons why your car’s air conditioning system may be malfunctioning:

Leaking Refrigerant

A common issue that many vehicle owners experience, leaking refrigerant may be a cause for your lack of cold air. Refrigerant is used to help cool the air entering your vehicle, and a lack of it can cause the cold air to feel a little warmer. If you want to look for the source of the leak, check for an oily substance accumulation. If you see an area within your vehicle that has that, that’s likely where the hole is.

Bad Compressor

The compressor can be considered to be the most important component in your vehicle’s A/C system. This component helps circulate the refrigerant and “compresses” the air entering your vehicle, creating the cold air you feel. The best way to prevent compressor failure? Continue to use it. A lot of compressors fail when they go through long periods without usage. Once every three weeks, do your best to run A/C for 15 minutes to maintain its performance.
