Car air conditioning systems promote a comfortable cabin interior and help prevent driver fatigue. Your vehicle AC system is responsible for cooling, purifying, and circulating air.
During normal vehicle operation, a substantial amount of heat is created by the engine and by exterior contributors like the road and sun.
The air conditioning system works through a series of processes that involve refrigerant. In your vehicle, refrigerant is responsible for removing heat from the cabin compartment. Refrigerant goes through a continuous cycle of air compression that is dependent on your compressor’s drive belt. The compressor pumps the refrigerant through the system where it is transformed from a hot gas into a liquid and then cooled. Through a number of other components, such as the condenser, compressor, and evaporator, the liquid is again processed into a gas, pressurized, and vaporized before being released into the cabin as cool air.
Like most aspects of car maintenance, treating a problem with your vehicle’s air conditioning system early can help prevent major repairs. For example, an air conditioning system operating on low refrigerant due to a leak will eventually damage the compressor. Replacing or repairing the compressor can be more expensive than sealing the leak and refilling the refrigerant.
Some symptoms to beware of regarding a faulty air conditioning system include:
