Even though we're nearing the end of summer, it is still piping hot in Arlington, TX. And we can guarantee that you wouldn't be too happy to cruise around the city without air conditioning in your cars. If you attempt to turn on your A/C and no air flows out, or maybe only warm/hot air blows out, then you should have the problem assessed and fixed promptly. The A/C system is more complex than you may believe. It involves the workings of multiple parts, and consequently, the malfunction of any of its components can corrupt the entire A/C system.
Here are some of the most widespread causes of A/C failure that we've seen and repaired at Euro Car Tech:
- Refrigerant leak
- Failing compressor
- Aged refrigerant hoses
- Mold or mildew buildup
- Faulty cooling fan
- Broken seal or hose
To prevent your air conditioning from breaking down suddenly, you should have your vehicle inspected seasonally by our expert team. Routine inspections of your HVAC system will allow our techs to catch problems early on before they become extensive repairs.
If you're unsure what you're dealing with when it comes to your HVAC system, be on the lookout for the following signs of failure:
- Hot air blows out of your vents when A/C is turned on
- No air reaching your vents
- Low air pressure when the A/C is turned to max
- Unusual smell or sounds when A/C is turned on
- Water leakages
A broken A/C system should be the least of your concerns for the remainder of summer. Even if it is not broken, you should take preventative measures by getting your vehicle frequently examined.
