Auto Air Conditioning Repair
Do you hear loud noises under the hood when you turn on your air conditioner? Do you only get cool air sporadically? If so, it’s time to get your air conditioner checked. It’s real easy to take your car’s air conditioner for granted. Just push the right buttons and out comes cool, dry, clean air. But your air conditioning system needs attention from time to time to help it keep its cool.
When most people hear the words “air conditioning problems,” it sends a shiver up their spine. That is because the air conditioning system is fairly complex. It has a lot of parts and when it’s broken, it’s expensive to repair.
What are some things can we do to prevent air conditioning breakdowns?
A common cause of air conditioning failure is leaks. Refrigerant, the stuff that makes the air cold, can leak out if the system has a part that has failed, such as a hose, 0-ring or evaporator. When refrigerant leaks out, the system loses its ability to cool, and it must be properly repaired. Simply adding more refrigerant to a system with a leak is not a correct repair, and it is also illegal to top it off.
You should also run the air conditioner regularly, even in the winter, so that it lubricates itself and keeps the seals from drying out, which leads to leaks. Of course, if it’s not working right, now is the time to get it checked.
New environmental laws have stopped the manufacture of Freon (R12), a refrigerant that was used in cars made before 1993. There is a very limited supply of R12 so the price is very steep. If you have an older vehicle that uses R12, you should consider having it retrofitted to use the new R134-A refrigerant. It will pay for itself in the long run. So, if your A/C is just blowing a lot of hot air, bring it to us for an inspection.
Often, repairing your car’s air conditioner can be done on the same day it’s brought in; however, it is impossible to diagnose your vehicle’s A/C system over the phone. Bring your vehicle in for the correct diagnosis. We have all of the latest equipment to guarantee you the correct repair.
All car A/C repair shops should verify that your air conditioning system is not leaking. This will ensure that your car A/C repairs are not temporary. An external check will determine if there is an internal or external problem with the system. Repairs to your car’s air conditioning may range from replacing the compressor to just recharging the system.
Often, a small electrical problem may cause the car’s air conditioning to fail. To be sure of what the problem is, bring your vehicle in to Lansdale Automotive today!
