Modern vehicles often have air conditioning problems due to either operational or airflow issues. To determine the fault, it is important to first evaluate your vehicle. An inspection of every component of the air conditioner system is the first step in evaluating the service. After determining the type of vehicle's air conditioning system, the technician connects the A/C service machine. Next, the technician tests the pressure, measures the refrigerant level, and compares the results to the manufacturer's specifications. The technician will then be able determine whether the problem is due to a leak, lack or obstruction of pressure or difficulty with the compressor.
After the vehicle has been inspected and the refrigerant levels measured, and no major malfunctions identified, the technician will conduct an evacuation and recharge procedure to check for any evidence of leaks. After the system has been thoroughly vacuumed and no leaks have been identified, the recharging process can begin. To identify future leaks, the recharging procedure adds refrigerant to the system.
No one likes bad smelling A/Cs. There are two main causes of bad A/C smells. One is old, dirty air in the cabin filter. An evaporator box that has developed mold could be a sign of more serious problems. An AC can fail for many reasons, as mentioned above. This could be due to a problem within one of its components or a leakage in one of its hoses. It is important that an AC failure be reported to a licensed repair shop. No refrigerant may be released into the air, as per law.
