My Air Conditioner is blowing hot! Help!

There's nothing more frustrating than turning on your car's air conditioning only to be met with warm air or no airflow at all. There are many things that can contribute to your air conditioning system not working.  Refrigerant Leaks: One of the most common reasons for a sudden loss of cooling is refrigerant leaks. Refrigerant is essential for the air conditioning system to produce cold air. Leaks can occur due to damaged hoses, connections, or components. Identifying and repairing refrigerant leaks is crucial for restoring proper cooling. Faulty Compressor: The compressor is the heart of the air conditioning system, responsible for pressurizing and circulating refrigerant. If the compressor fails, the air conditioner won't be able to cool the air. Common issues include compressor clutch failure or internal component damage. Electrical Issues: Problems with electrical components, such as a malfunctioning thermostat, faulty relays, or damaged wiring, can le ... read more

Why did my cars air conditioning stop working?

Why did my cars air conditioning stop working?

  Here are a few potential reasons: 1. Low refrigerant levels: If the refrigerant levels in your car's AC system are low, it can cause the system to stop working. This can happen due to leaks in the system or normal wear and tear over time. 2. Electrical issues: The AC system in your car relies on electrical components to function. If there is a problem with the electrical system, such as a blown fuse or faulty wiring, it can cause the AC to stop working. 3. Faulty compressor: The compressor is a key component of the AC system, and if it fails, the system won't work. This can happen due to a number of reasons, including wear and tear or a lack of regular maintenance. 4. Blocked or clogged condenser: The condenser is responsible for removing heat from the refrigerant. If it becomes blocked or clogged, it can prevent the AC system from working properly. 5. Malfunctioning blower: The blower is responsible for circulating the cooled air throughout your car's interior ... read more

Why Did My Car's A/C Stop Blowing Cold? The Top Reasons

Summer is in full swing and that means one thing for many people - air conditioning! If you're having trouble getting your A/C to blow cold air, don't worry - you're not alone. In this blog post, we will discuss the top reasons why your A/C might not be working properly. We'll also provide some tips on how to fix the issue. Keep reading to learn more! One of the most common reasons why your car's A/C might stop blowing cold air is because the Freon levels are low. Freon is a refrigerant that helps to cool the air as it passes through the A/C unit. If the levels are low, it can cause the air to not be as cool as it should be. Another reason why your A/C might not be working properly is that there is a problem with the compressor. The compressor is responsible for circulating the refrigerant through the A/C unit. If it's not working properly, it can cause the air to not be as cool as it should be. You could have a leak in your A/C system. All A/C systems are close ... read more

Do all cars leak water when AC is on?

Most do. The water is coming from your evaporator core inside your dash. While using your air conditioner the evaporator core will create condensation. This condensation drains out the bottom of your vehicle through a drain tube. This is completely normal and how the system is designed to work. If you see water on the inside of your vehicle you may have a plugged drain tube or other problem. Give us a call and let us take care of you.

Why does my a/c only blow on high?

If your air conditioning is only blowing on high then it could be due to a faulty blower motor resistor. The blower motor resistor could go out due to a terminal getting burnt due to the blower motor drawing too much current. When the blower motor is drawing too much current it will overload the circuits on the resistor. This will cause them to burn out and stop working.

Why does my air conditioning smell musty?

Your air conditioning may smell musty due to condensation that builds up on the cold components inside of your dash. These cold components can collect dust out of the air. Over time the dust will build up, and combined with the moisture this will cause a musty smell. This musty smell is coming from mold and mildew from the dust. One way to prevent this from happening is to always run your air conditioning on recirculate. This will prevent the dust from entering the cab of your vehicle. We also recommend having your cabin air filter changed. Your cabin air filter collects the spores, pollen, and dirt from the air in your cab. Give us a call and let us take care of you.

Why did my A/C stop working?

Why did my A/C stop working?

Why did my A/C stop working? Most of the time when your air conditioner stops working it is due to the refrigerant level in your air conditioning system is too low to turn on your a/c compressor. This is usually due to a leak in one of your air conditioning components.   This does not necessarily mean that the component has failed, it could mean that you have a faulty O-ring that is causing the issue.

My a/c was just serviced and it's still blowing hot

If your air conditioner was just recently serviced and it's still blowing hot, then you have a leak somewhere in your system. On every vehicle that we do an air conditioning service on we use a dye in the oil that is injected into the system to check for leaks. This save you money and us time looking for an issue with your system. Over time hoses and fittings do wear out and need to be replaced along with compressors and condensers.  If your air conditioning isn't blowing cold, give us a call and let us take care of you.  Happy Adventures, Heather
