How an Evacuation and Recharge for Your Auto Air Conditioning System
Refrigerant is the chemical used in air conditioning systems that makes the air turn cooler. If your car’s air conditioning system is lacking a proper amount of refrigerant, is using contaminated refrigerant, or has a leak that causes it to lose refrigerant, your air conditioning system will run but will not produce cool air.
Luckily, there is an easy fix. If your car is lacking functioning refrigerant, an experienced mechanic can do an evacuation and recharge. During an evacuation and recharge, mechanics purge the old refrigerant, along with its residues and contaminants, by connecting your car’s air conditioning system to a special vacuum. Once the old refrigerant is removed, the mechanic will replace it with fresh refrigerant and will then run tests to make sure that it is working properly.
In some cases, your car’s air conditioning system will lose refrigerant if there is a leak. In addition to replacing old refrigerant, experienced auto air conditioning professionals can find and patch leaks that are causing you to lose refrigerant over time. Leaks can happen for a variety of reasons, including damaged seals, broken hoses, a broken compressor, or a damaged condenser or evaporator.
It’s important to use an experienced professional to do an evacuation and recharge on your car’s refrigerant since the EPA maintains a close watch over refrigerant evacuation and recharge procedures, as well as refrigerant products. It is not advisable to attempt to perform an evacuation and recharge at home.
Identifying Why Your Car’s Air Conditioning System Is Not Cooling
When your car’s air conditioning system begins to show signs that it isn’t working properly, it can be difficult to know what exactly the problem is. The mechanics that work with AAA Radiators and Auto Air Conditioning can take a look at what’s wrong with your car’s air conditioning system, figure out what the problem is, and then fix it.
Our mechanics are trained to know the meaning of signs that your car exhibits. All the sounds that your car makes have a meaning that can be interpreted by our mechanics. For example, a clicking sound means that there is something wrong with the bolts in your car’s air conditioning system while a screeching sound means that there is something wrong with the fan that cools your car’s air conditioning system.
Experienced mechanics can also identify the cause of bad smells that come from the vents of your car’s air conditioning system. A bad smell that comes from the vents in your air conditioning system means that a substance such as mold or bacteria has taken over; it’s important to deal with this immediately because inhaling these substances can damage your respiratory health.
If your car is experiencing any combination of abnormal behavior or is failing to work at all, allow a mechanic to determine what the problem is. The mechanics that work with AAA Radiator and Auto Air Conditioning are qualified to diagnose any problem with air conditioning in most vehicles in the Miami area.
