03 Oct Has Your Car Air Conditioning Stopped Keeping You Cool
Throughout the colder months in the Brisbane area, most people don’t give any thought to their car conditioner. But when things begin to heat up, many switch on the air conditioner only to find out that it no longer puts out cold 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 cold 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 regas (this is required every 1.5-2 years on average)
One of the main reasons that an air conditioner stops putting out cold air is that people have not kept up with their routine maintenance. For a car air conditioner to keep working well, putting out cold breeze on a hot day, it needs to be taken care of. The most important thing you can do 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 air conditioner not putting out cool air. To get the cold air back, it is essential to bring it in to be serviced. At Keepin’ Cool Auto Air-Conditioning we can conduct an inspection to locate the problem quickly, fix it, and then have you on your way in a cold car.
