Some common car A/C problems include:
Problems with your vehicle's A/C system can stem from many issues, including blown fuses or bad electrical connectors, a refrigerant leak from a cracked O-ring seal in the A/C line, a worn out cabin air filter, a bad compressor clutch or receiver dryer, a broken orifice tube, excessive heat damage from the engine, or a number of other causes.
With so many potential reasons for A/C repair services, we recommend letting our expert technicians run an A/C Performance Check to help diagnose the cause of your A/C problems.
Most drivers notice issues with their A/C system around the beginning of summer when the weather starts to get hot again. They turn on the A/C, expecting to be greeted with refreshingly cool air —only to get a face full of hot air instead.
A working A/C system is just as important in the winter as it is in the summer. That’s because the A/C system removes moisturefrom the cold air inside your car, preventing frost from forming on the inside of your windows and helping maintain visibility.
Sometimes, all that’s needed to fix A/C problems in a car is a simple recharge service where new refrigerant is added to the system. That’s one way to make sure you’ve got cold air flowingin time for the summer heat.
An A/C system that no longer blows cold air could be a sign that the refrigerant has become contaminated, there’s a leak in the system, or there's a failing part. When you top off the refrigerant levels without removing the old refrigerant or finding the root of the issue, the cool air you feel likely won’t last. Since your A/C is meant to be a closed system, opening it up without professional help may lead to a change in system pressures and furtherlower performance.
