Has Your Car’s Air Conditioning Stopped Keeping You Cool?
by Jamie Ruf
Through out the cooler months in the Brisbane area most people don’t give any thought to their car’s auto conditioner. But when things begin to heat up there are many that reach for the air conditioner only to find out that it no longer puts out cool air. Putting your hand in front of it may let you know there is a problem, but it is not at all going to help you with the solution!
There are several reasons why a car’s air conditioner may stop working or putting out cool air. These can include such problems as:
- Leaks or a thermal expansion valve in need of replacement
- Worn or broken hoses or belt
- Compressor clutch that is slipping
- A broken condenser or compressor
- Needing a re-gas (this is needed every 1.5-2 years on average)
One of the main reasons that an air conditioner stops putting out cool air is that people have not kept up on their routine maintenance. In order for a car’s air conditioner to keep working well, putting out cool air on a hot day, it needs to be taken care of. The most important thing you can do in order to take care of your car’s air conditioner is to get routine inspections and keep up on maintenance.
Leaks, worn hoses, and a variety of other possibilities can lead to your car’s air conditioner not putting out cool air. In order to get the cool air back it is important to bring it in to be serviced.
