Even though we have looked forward to warmer temperatures, most people still want to stay cool and comfortable in their car even for a short commute to work. If you haven’t yet scheduled a car AC repair service, it’s not too late! Your car air conditioner will get a lot of use as you finish out the summer.

So how often should you service your car air conditioner? It would be wise to have your car inspected by a certified car AC repair technician at least once a year. This would be especially important if you’re still planning a summer road trip! Not only will it help prevent a costly car AC repair, but you will also reap the benefits of a more comfortable drive and improved gas mileage.

The days of “do-it-yourself” vehicle maintenance are in the past! With computerization, the AC system in today’s cars is more complex than ever. If your car AC isn’t getting cold, it may simply need fresh coolant added to the radiator. However, there are other causes that will cause your AC to not work properly:

  • The AC’s compressor isn’t able to create a high enough pressure in the system for the refrigerant to cool properly.
  • A clog or block in the system allows the high-pressure refrigerant to slowly decompress through the clog.
  • There is too low of pressure in the system before the compressor. Without enough pressure, the compressor will work too hard to raise the pressure in the system and won’t be as efficient.
  • The AC unit is exposed to the extreme heat of the engine, road debris, dirt, vibrations, quick stops, and even run-ins with curbs. This stress may create small cracks that allow the refrigerant to escape.
  • The cooling fans could be burned out, poorly mounted, a chipped blade, a blown fuse or a burnt-out relay.
  • There could be an electrical problem such as a faulty signal coming from the ventilation system caused by a broken wire, bad module, or bad sensors.
