Keep Your Vehicle's Air Conditioning System Working Properly

Your vehicle's system requires a full discharge every two years and a recharge and top up every year.

I'm not getting enough cold air, what's wrong?

Not enough cool air, or air that is warmer than usual, is generally caused by:

  • Low refrigerant
  • Loose drive belt
  • Slipping compressor clutch
  • Partially clogged valves or filters
  • Slow leaks in components or hoses
  • Clogs in the evaporator or condenser

Why did my air conditioning suddenly stop working?

The most common reasons why an air conditioning system will stop working include:

  • Broken or very loose drive belt
  • Blown fuses
  • Broken compressor or compressor clutch
  • Leaks in components, seals or hoses
  • Defects or clogs in the expansion valve, orifice tube, accumulator, receiver-drier, or hoses

If you are asking yourself either of these questions, it's time to have your vehicles air conditioning system checked. Finding a solution that corrects the problem now, will help you save on repairs and maintenance down the road.
