Top 3 Reasons Why Your Vehicle May Not Be Cooling Off Quickly
by Jamie Ruf
With the temperatures so warm around Brisbane, there are many people who are jumping in their vehicles and immediately hitting the air conditioning switch. While you may want that air conditioning to quickly cool the car off, there are times when it doesn’t. Sometimes those reasons can be cause for concern, while other times they are not. It’s all about knowing the difference between the two.
There are many reasons why a vehicle’s air conditioning may sound like it’s working, yet the air is not cooling off inside the car. If this is happening to you, then you know just how frustrating it can be. Here are the three top reasons why your vehicle may not be cooling off quickly enough for you:
- It’s really hot outside. When the temperatures are higher in the summer, then it’s more difficult for the air conditioner to quickly bring the inside temperature down. This is especially true if you have a large vehicle. If this is the problem, then you will notice that it does cool it down after about 5-10 minutes. The only thing you most likely need in this case is patience, as you give the car a few extra minutes to cool down. Don’t forget to open the windows for the first minute or two, so you can help get the hot air out, helping it to cool down quicker.
- It needs a recharge. When your air conditioner is blowing, yet the air is not as cool as it should be, there is a possibility that it may need to be recharged. There could also be a leak. Either way, this is something that you will need to have serviced in order to properly address.
- The compressor isn’t working. Compressors wear out over time, and when that happens it is not going to properly circulate the refrigerant. This is also something that you will need to have serviced in order to remedy the situation and get your air conditioner working good again.
