Low refrigerant levels in the air conditioner are the main cause of it not working. Air conditioner units are sealed and can lose less that.5 ounces per annum. Any loss greater that.5 ounces in a year is considered to be a leak. Refrigerant levels must also be checked for lows. The second most common problem is a blockage of restriction in the system. The compressor failing to engage, or not creating enough pressure for the system's normal operation is the third most common reason for air conditioning problems.
The car's HVAC system includes a cabin air filter. It filters out pollutants and allows warm or cold air to circulate through the car. Once it gets dirty, however, it must be replaced. Repairing a cabin air filter blockage will cost you between $70 and $100. The labor and parts cost between $40 and $70.
There are a few ways you can detect a leaky A/C. One option is to use ultraviolet dyes with black light enabled dyes. Many refrigerants can be seen under black light because they are often mixed with UV dyes. The "sniffer", which is a special device that detects potential leaks and can zero in on refrigerants chemical compounds, is another option. Ask your service tech about these options.
Your A/C could be producing hot air, which could indicate a serious problem. Water can get into your A/C and combine with refrigerant to create a highly corrosive chemical that literally eats away your system. Rubber seals that keep the refrigerant from leaching can be damaged by this acid. The refrigerant can cause your A/C to lose its cooling power if it leaks.
The air-conditioning system is made up of three main parts: the compressor, evaporator, and condenser. All these parts are connected via a series of sensors and valves. A technician will usually be required to nitrogenize the system in order to stop a leak. Although this isn't expensive, it will take about an hour of labor at an average auto repair shop.
