My Ford is Making Noises When I Turn the A/C On
You turned your car’s air conditioning (a/c) system expecting to enjoy a breezy ride all the way to work. To your surprise, your car started making weird noises, and the air unit did not cool the air. These are all indications your vehicle’s air unit may be compromised. Sounds that appear when you turn your air conditioning on can be caused by many different factors.
One of the most common indicators of failure within your car’s a/c unit is the sound coming out of the car’s vents. Crackling or rattling sounds may indicate there are problems within the a/c system requiring immediate assessment and repairs. Most of the times, rattling noises happen due to issues in the compressor. The compressor is one of the most critical components in your car’s a/c. It is in charge of pumping, pressurizing, and passing coolant to the evaporator. If the compressor’s core or any of its components fails, your air conditioning unit will not work adequately.
There are instances where you may experience a loud screeching or squealing noise every time you turn the a/c on. This may be caused by a pulley working in unison with the compressor. The pulley has a set of bearings that if worn or damaged tends to cause the distinctive loud, sharp noise.
In addition to odd sounds, your car may provide you with other signs its air unit is failing. For instance, when you turn the a/c on, you should be able to feel cold air coming out of the vent almost immediately. If you turn your air conditioner on and feel nothing but hot air coming out of the vents, that should raise a big red flag. If this is your case, you should take immediate action and take your car to a certified auto air conditioning professional as soon as possible.
When Is it a Good Time to Take My Ford to an A/C Repair Shop?
There may be some lucky car owners who may not need to get their car’s a/c checked for years or maybe never. However, many people may not bee that lucky. One of the most common reasons people take their car to an auto air mechanic is because their car is not cooling as it once did. Most of the times the lack of fresh air happens because of leaks. Leaks can cause the system to lose its cooling agent. In these situations, a certified auto air conditioning mechanic will perform a process called evacuation and recharge.
Recharges are conducted by implementing the use of specialized equipment. It is essential to know, performing a trained and experienced mechanic should do this type of service. Recharging you’re a/c unit on your own can lead to an otherwise preventable injury and further compromise your vehicle’s a/c unit.
During recharge, a specially designed machine is attached to your car. The machine is in charge of extracting old coolant residue, oil, and other contaminants. Once cleaned, the evacuation and recharge device will refill your car’s a/c system to the manufacturer-recommended levels.
Why Should You Take Your Ford to a Professional Auto Air Mechanic?
Assessing and repairing a car’s a/c unit is complicated and requires a trained, experienced, and certified mechanic. The science behind turning your air on and off is more complicated than most people may know. Air conditioning systems in cars have evolved to the point where they have more electrical than mechanical components. This means there are more chances to cause damage to your vehicle’s a/c if you decide to perform any repairs on your own. A certified auto air conditioning mechanic can help you take care of any problems your vehicle’s air conditioning unit may have.
