Your AC is not ‘vital’ for driving but it is an important component of your car. In the summer season, you may not like to drive with a failed air conditioner because of extreme discomfort. Therefore, most of the cars include Air Conditioning as a standard feature because of its vital importance.
Like other components of the vehicle, your AC may stop working properly because of different reasons.
AC follows a complex mechanism to keep your cabin cool and even a minor issue may affect its cooling power. Therefore, it is essential to know about the possible reasons that may damage your car AC system.
This blog is about the main reasons responsible for the strange behaviour of your AC.
Let us see!
AC is Not Blowing Cool Air:
This is the prime problem when we talk about the faults taking place in the car AC system.
It is possible that your AC is not cooling the cabin due to a leak of refrigerant. Refrigerant is the main component of the car AC system because it makes other components able to function properly.
If you observe this problem, you must look for a hole in compressor, condenser, evaporator etc.
Absence of the Air that Comes from the Vents
This is a complex issue and you need the help of a technician to solve the issue. When you call the technician, he is supposed to check several components to find out the real cause of the problem.
The technician may check the ventilation fuse because if a blown fuse will not provide enough power to the blower motor and the flow of air will be prevented through the vents.
It is also possible that the blower motor is damaged and is not pushing enough air through the vents.
Moreover, a malfunctioned blower resistor may also cause faults in the AC system.
The technician is going to check the air intake area for clogging because the presence of debris makes your vents blow no or little air.
In addition, any kind of damage, leak, or detachment in any hoses or belts may stop the flow of air through the vents.
Air is not Sufficiently Cold
- This issue may take place due to the low level of refrigerant.
- Apart from the low refrigerant, a blocked condenser can be the reason if hot air is coming from the vents.
- Moreover, insufficient cooling of the air is possible due to a failed clutch switch.
Loud Noise from the Air Conditioner:
The reasons for loud noise can be a damaged compressor. In case of damage occurred in any interior part of the compressor, it will start to make noises until you do not repair it properly.
Burning Smell from the AC
A sharp burning smell from the AC is a sign of burnt wirings of the compressor. In this case, you need to call your technician to change the wirings to avoid other major electrical issues.
Presence of Water Inside the Cabin
The condensed water should not enter the cabin but you may find the drops of water inside the cabin due to a clogged drain hose so the water is not drained out properly. In this condition, you need to visit the garage as soon as possible.
There are several Car AC issues that are minor and you can fix them easily but some major issues need the help of a technician. Therefore, you need to visit the service station for proper Car Servicing Barnet.
Surely good maintenance of the car keeps every component of the vehicle healthy including the Air conditioner.
