Why Your Car Air Conditioning May Not Be Blowing Cold Air
Auto air conditioning systems are made up of many parts. If something is wrong with one of those parts, the entire system can fail, which means that your air conditioning system won’t provide cold air. One of the main causes of a malfunctioning air conditioning system is a buildup of mold, dust, and other types of debris, which can block air from flowing freely through your car.
Your car’s air conditioning system may also be failing to cool your car properly because it has a damaged seal, which will cause it to lose air pressure. A loss of air pressure will result in an air conditioning system that doesn’t blow cool air. Another reason that your car’s air conditioning system may not be working properly is that your car is out of refrigerant, the liquid within your car’s air conditioning system that cools the air. This can be solved with a simple evacuation and recharge.
Figuring out what is wrong with your car’s air conditioning system doesn’t have to be daunting. You can find out what is keeping your car’s A/C system from working properly by taking it to Miami automotive air conditioning repair shop AAA Radiator and Auto Air Conditioning for a diagnosis. We can identify the reason why your car’s air conditioning system isn’t cooling enough and can find any other problems that your car’s air conditioning system may be experiencing, including:
- Foul smells coming from vents – A musty or foul smell coming from the vents in your car’s air conditioning system may be caused by a buildup of either mold, bacteria, or humidity. If you smell something off coming from your car’s air conditioning system, it means that you are likely inhaling particles that are not good for your health, and you should get attention from a professional as soon as possible.
- Abnormal sounds – Strange sounds are a sign that there is something wrong with your car’s air conditioning system. Screeching means that the fans in your car’s system aren’t working as they should, a clicking sound means that the bolts in your car’s system are worn out, and a buzzing sound means that there is something wrong with the refrigerant your system is using.
Why Auto Air Conditioning Evacuation and Recharge Might Be the Solution
If your car’s air conditioning system isn’t blowing cold air, it’s likely that there is a problem with your car’s refrigerant. Refrigerant is the substance that transforms air from a low-pressure gas into a high-pressure liquid, and then back into a low-pressure gas. During this process, the air is cooled down and then blown into your car’s cabin.
As refrigerant cycles through your car, it can collect contaminants such as mold and dust. Contaminated refrigerant cannot do its job of cooling air, which means that your system will not blow cold air as it should. If this is the case with your car, a mechanic can perform an evacuation and recharge of your refrigerant. The mechanic will use a special vacuum to drain the contaminated refrigerant from your car and will then replace it with clean refrigerant. They will then run tests to make sure that the system cools your car the way it should.
If your car’s air conditioning system has a leak, the refrigerant will eventually seep out of the system. A mechanic can identify the place where the refrigerant is leaking out; refrigerant often leaks through a broken hose, a broken compressor, or a damaged evaporator or condenser. Once the mechanic finds the place from which the refrigerant is leaking, they can patch it up and then refill your car’s A/C system with refrigerant.
The Environmental Protection Agency maintains close supervision of refrigerants, as well as evacuation and recharge procedures. Drivers should never attempt to perform an evacuation and recharge themselves; it should always be left to a professional.
Identifying the Cause of Your Car’s A/C Not Blowing Cold Air
The mechanics from AAA Radiators and Auto Air Conditioning pride themselves on an ability to diagnose the air conditioning problems that Miami drivers face. They can put their wide base of expertise to use to identify what is wrong with your car’s air conditioning system and then find and implement a solution.
If your car’s air conditioning system is making an abnormal sound, we can figure out where the sound is coming from and what it means. A clicking sound, for example, often means that your car’s air conditioning system’s bolts are worn down or loose. A screeching sound means that the fan that cools your air conditioning system is facing trouble. A buzzing sound means that there is something wrong with your car’s refrigerant.
Our mechanics can also identify the cause of odd smells coming from your car’s air conditioning system. Often, a bad smell means that mold, bacteria, or another substance has infiltrated the system. Breathing in the air produced by an A/C system that has mold and bacteria in it can be harmful to your respiratory health; if this applies to you, your car’s air conditioning system should be looked at by a professional as soon as possible.
It can be frustrating to have an air conditioning system that behaves abnormally, operates at a low speed, generates warm air, or fails to work at all. Don’t waste any time wondering what the problem is. Allow a mechanic from AAA Radiator and Auto Air Conditioning to diagnose the issues with your car’s air conditioning system and then fix it quickly so that you can get back to driving in comfort.
