Aircon Repairs

It's easy to forget about your air conditioner until something goes wrong. To avoid the inconvenience and potential long-term problems of a malfunctioning car air conditioner, it's important to know the warning signs that your car air conditioner needs repair before the problem becomes serious. Once or twice a year is probably enough. Spring is a good time for this. We recommend that you schedule an AC charge before your device completely stops blowing cool air. If you find that the air coming out of your vents isn't as energetic, give us a call. Car air conditioning service usually takes 3-4 hours. The service includes many steps: First, the residual gas is removed from the air conditioning system. The dashboard is removed, and the cooling coil is removed.

1. Your air conditioner isn't cooling your car

The most obvious sign that your air conditioner needs repairing is that it's not performing its essential function of keeping your car cool. Your car may be cooler due to poor airflow. A weak air flow indicates that the air is blocked due to an obstruction, e.g. mold or a damaged fan, has difficulty flowing through the vents.

2. Unusual noises

Unusual noises from your car are often an obvious sign that it's time to see a mechanic. When you turn on the air conditioner, you may hear a thumping or rattling sound rather than the sound of airflow. This indicates that there could be a problem with a broken fan belt or condenser, or foreign objects clogging the fan. If you hear unusual noises, it is important that you reserve your car for an air conditioning service to avoid further problems.

3. Unpleasant odours

Unpleasant, burning odours from your air conditioner vents indicate other but equally worrisome problems if left untreated. Unpleasant odours are a stark warning that something is wrong with your car's air conditioning system. The odour often indicates that mold is growing inside the system, which requires immediate professional cleaning of your car's air conditioning system to avoid breathing problems for you and your passengers avoid. Don't hesitate to have your car's air conditioning repaired if you notice unpleasant odours coming from the air vents.

4. Leaky Dashboard

A leaky dashboard and water stains on your car's floor mat indicate that a hose on your car is clogged or snapped. A clogged hose means Your car cannot drain moisture from the air conditioner down the drain, instead it seeps into your vehicle. If you notice water on the front floor mats or dripping down the dashboard of your,  this is a serious indication that there are problems with your car's air conditioning system that should be checked by a mechanic.

5. Cools down slowly

If the air conditioner cools the car much more slowly than it should, it is probably due to insufficient refrigerant leakage or prolonged use.
