Is Your Air Conditioning Ready for Summer?
May 2, 2019
Summer is just around the corner and with it the hot summer air. And when it comes to summer driving, the only thing worse than being stuck in traffic on a hot day is being stuck in traffic on a hot day without an air conditioning system ready to handle the heat. Take some time before it warms up too much to know if your air conditioning is ready for summer or if you might need to look into vehicle air conditioning repair.
The compressor is often the route of many air conditioning issues and is where we recommend starting the search for a solution. In this system, your clutch may be failing to engage or may be engaging and disengaging too rapidly. An auto shop with the capabilities to perform vehicle air conditioning repair will be able to diagnose the specific issue and reset your compressor to help properly keep you cool.
Cool But Not Cold
An air conditioning system that gives you a taste of the good stuff might as well be giving you nothing; it’s like a microwaved lunch that’s only hot on the outside. But just like that microwaved lunch, it can be fixed. If your system is set to its max cool setting with the fan on high yet is still putting out air at a temperature other than cold, it could be for a number of reasons. Most commonly, your condenser or radiator fans might not be running, or the airflow might be restricted by leaves, bugs, dirt, or other clutter. There’s also a chance that the high-side and low-side pressures of your system are out of alignment.
Leaks are one of the most common problems when it comes to air conditioning systems and could result in a lack of vehicle readiness for summer, especially if you haven’t needed to use your system in the midst of the recent cold months. Most leaks will stem from low pressure, but there could also be gaps in different seals within the system, small holes in the tubing and other key parts, or broken solder points. It’s important for your local vehicle air conditioning company to troubleshoot and find the leak in your system so you can get on your way to comfortable summertime driving.
