A car's air conditioning works like any standard air conditioner, but on a much smaller scale. It's important to note that the a/c in your car, truck or SUV doesn't produce cold air, it removes heat from the air entering its system. The refrigerant in your vehicle alternates between a gaseous and liquid state. When refrigerant in its cool liquid form is exposed to warm air in your vehicle's condenser, it evaporates into a gas and absorbs or removes heat from the surrounding environment. The heated refrigerant then moves to a separate part of the system, where the gas is compressed into liquid by the compressor. Before the refrigerant can cycle back through the system, any water that may have been created in the process needs to be removed. This is achieved by a component known as a receiver or dryer. Once the water is removed, the refrigerant can start the cycle all over again. If your experience issues with the AC in your car, truck, or SUV and are in Kissimmee, or the nearby area you can bring your car to RepairTech Automotive and DIY today.
Whether it's for your Acura, Audi, BMW, or Buick, there are universal indicators that there is a problem with your car's air conditioning. If you're experiencing any of the below signs, bring your car, truck, van, or SUV to RepairTech Automotive and DIY for an AC inspection, or repair. Here are some of the key signs to watch out for:
The air isn't cooling - When you live in Kissimmee, or nearby it's pretty obvious when your AC isn't blowing cold air. Most of the time, air conditioning loses its cooling properties because there is a low level of refrigerant, your condenser is broken, or the compressor has a broken or damaged belt. Freon (R12) used to be the most common AC refrigerant, but now most vehicles use R134a or R1234yf.
You hear strange noises when your air conditioning is on - Noise usually comes from a dying compressor, but some other common causes can be a cross-contaminated refrigerant or the use of the wrong lubricant.
It seems moist inside your vehicle - The common cause for moist air inside your car is usually moisture or debris trapped inside your air conditioning system. Air Conditioning systems by nature remove humidity and moisture from the air. If you're seeing the windows fog up, or there is moisture in the vehicle you likely need an auto air conditioning repair.
The air from your air conditioning smells - If you haven't used your air conditioning in a while, bacteria and fungus can settle into the system, creating a foul smell. If you've just hopped in your car, truck or SUV, and notice a funky smell blowing from the air conditioning vents, call RepairTech Automotive and DIY or schedule an appointment online.
Something is leaking from your air conditioning - Leaking refrigerant is dangerous and this issue should be addressed as soon as possible. It can be hard to tell, however. Oftentimes a normally operating AC system will leak water onto the pavement below as condensation is released. If you suspect that the puddle on the ground is not water, our ASE-certified technicians should take a look at your air conditioning, or other systems that utilize fluid.
