It’s the time of year again that we’re hearing a common air conditioning complaint from auto owners across the lowcountry that is the same as heard by auto repair shops all over South Carolina. “It’s hot and my car air conditioner isn’t blowing cold. What’s wrong? It was working just fine last year”
Troubleshooting your auto air conditioning problem can be confusing if you don’t understand the process of your car’s air condition system. The most common cause of auto air conditioning problems is that the Freon in the system has leaked out. Your freon can escape through a leaky compressor or O-ring seal or you might have a pinhole in the condenser, the evaporator, or maybe just a hose. All automobiles will leak some refrigerant through pores in hoses and the older your car gets the more leakage usually occurs. Newer cars are built with better seals and hoses but because the systems themselves are smaller, it only takes a small amount of refrigerant leakage to notice poor cooling system performance. If this is the problem a simple recharging of the Freon along with repairing or replacing of the part that the Freon is leaking from will do the trick.
That being said, there are however, other reasons your car’s air conditioning system isn’t working properly. It could be a blown fuse, a pressure issue, or even an electrical problem. There are many parts to your car’s air conditioning system including: a condenser, compressor, evaporator, hoses, tube connections, seals, and fittings. Any of these could be the culprit. By evaluating and inspecting your auto’s air conditioning system and troubleshooting the problem, we can usually repair the leak, recharge your system, and get your going in the comfort of your air conditioned car once again.
