Summer has arrived and temperatures will be rising. During the cold temperatures of winter, your heating unit received a lot of use. Now is the time to schedule a car Ac repair so that you are ready for summer’s hot days. Fresh coolant may simply need to be added to the radiator.

With the introduction of computerized parts, today’s car A/C system is more complex than ever. Air conditioning systems work on the principle that when the refrigerant is compressed and cooled, allowed to expand again, it will then get very cold. If your AC’s compressor isn’t able to create a high enough pressure in the system then the refrigerant will not properly cool when it is allowed to expand through the expansion valve or orifice tube.

If there is a clog or block in the system, the high-pressure refrigerant may be allowed to slowly decompress through the clog which won’t create the proper cooling effect. A certified mechanic can determine how much pressure is in the compressor and will be able to tell you if the compressor is worn out and needs to be replaced or if it is just clogged.

Your car’s air conditioner is exposed to the extreme heat of your engine, road debris, dirt, vibrations, quick stops and even the occasional run-in with a curb. All this stress can allow small cracks to form in components or connections to slowly work their way to lose leaving tiny spaces for the refrigerant to leak out.

Note to Remember: Schedule a routine car AC service at least once a year. The benefits include improved gas mileage, a more environmentally-friendly vehicle, and a more comfortable drive.
