One of the most important aspects of keeping your vehicle comfortable is having a properly working air conditioner and heater. When the air conditioner goes out, it’s possible that refrigerant will leak. This is both harmful to the vehicle and the environment. As far as your vehicle goes, refrigerant can damage the compressor and evaporator. This is why it’s so important to get your air conditioner serviced as soon as you realize there is a problem.
Every ride in your vehicle should be comfortable, and at Kwik Kar Richardson we can make sure the heat and cooling system is running well so you are in comfort while driving.
When it comes to the vehicle air conditioner, the following are some of the signs that there may be a problem:
On the other hand, if your heater core has a problem, you may see these other signs:
You can keep driving your vehicle even if the air conditioner or heater is not working. However, having operational heating and cooling can make for a more comfortable ride. In cars where heating and cooling are a combined system, one being broken can lead to a lack of temperature regulation with both.
First, one of the technicians at Kwik Kar Richardson will talk to you about what symptoms are present. After this, they will do a full visual inspection of the air conditioner, including the compressor drive belt, serpentine belt, and other accessible items. At that point, the compressor will be checked for operation.
If there seems to be no damage or leaks, the technician will then remove the refrigerant that is in the system, test it, and then recharge that system with the proper refrigerant for your vehicle.
On the other hand, if there is damage or problems with some part of the air conditioner, that will be repaired or replaced.
