With the warm weather we now frequently experience, its a great comfort to have cool air inside your car while you travel. However, cooling systems can break down. Proper maintenance and inspection of your air conditioning system can be an intimidating task. However, without doing periodic checks on your AC system it can cost you a fortune in the long run. Air-conditioning system service and repairs can be very expensive.
Warning signs to look for: Once you notice that the air emitted inside your car is warm, or not cooling as it should, it may be an indication that there is an issue. Moreover, if the air in your car is cool at first but turns warm after driving, it is another sign that your system maybe in need of service. At this point a recharge of the refrigerant may be needed or parts may need to be replaced.
If you are purchasing a used automobile that has air conditioning, it is a good idea to have it checked out by a reputable service shop to insure that it is functioning properly.
One of the common problems with the A/C in your car is a simple fuse wire connection. Once you turn the air conditioning on and the compressor did not start up, the issue maybe with the fuse or electrical system. It could be a wiring issue to the fuse or the fuse itself. If this is the case, you can easily replace the fuse.
If replacing the fuse did not solve the issue, and if you are not handy with a wrench yourself, then your next option is to locate a experienced auto mechanic to take a look at it. Common parts that fail are seals, lines and compressors
The two most common problems with car air conditioning systems are;
- Leaks: As your automobile ages, hoses and other sealed components of the air conditioning system may start leaking.
- Lubrication: make sure your air conditioning system is properly lubricated and the correct recommended lubricated is used. If the wrong lubricate is used it could damage your system
