Signs of car a/c failure

Nobody wants to get stuck during the spring or summer warmth without working air conditioning. If you try to turn on your A/C and no air blows out, or maybe only hot air blows out and it never gets colder, there’s something wrong with an A/C component. The A/C system is actually very complex, and therefore there are a number of different reasons why the system can fail. Here are some of the top causes of A/C system failure: 

  • Refrigerant leak
  • Failed compressor
  • Deteriorated refrigerant hoses
  • Mold or mildew buildup
  • Faulty cooling fan
  • Broken seal or hose

The best way to ensure that your vehicle’s air conditioning will work properly throughout the spring and summer is to have your system inspected by one of our experts regularly. Routine A/C inspections will allow us to catch small problems early on before they turn into more expensive issues. 

If there is a problem with your vehicle’s air conditioning system, you may notice one or more of the following symptoms: 

  • Air blows out hot when A/C is on
  • No air coming out of vents
  • Low air pressure 
  • Temperature of air doesn’t match setting
  • Strange smell or noises when A/C is turned on

If you suspect an issue with your vehicle’s air conditioning, don’t hesitate to give our experts a call or stop by today for friendly and fast service!
