Auto AC Repair

Common AC Problems

Your car’s air conditioning is a system of complex parts. When one of them has an issue, it can affect the entire operation. There are several ways that your vehicle will tell you that something is wrong.

If you turn on your air conditioner and it blows cool air, but not cold, you could have several problems. The issues could be a clogged air filter, a problem with the cooling fan, or even a radiator problem. If your AC is blowing warm air, the problem could be anything from a refrigerant leak to an electrical problem. Bring it into the shop if you experience either of these issues, and our shop of ASE-Certified technicians will efficiently diagnose the issue and perform the necessary repairs. One of the most common solutions is a simple AC system recharge. We perform 1234yf evac and recharge services with the latest technology, tools, and expertise.

Another common problem that many drivers run into is mold and mildew in their AC system. If you turn the air on and it smells damp, you probably have bacteria and mildew growing. If you rarely use your AC, it can become humid in all the nooks and crannies, making it the ideal environment for mildew to grow. If your AC is producing any unusual odors, our ASE-Certified technicians will clean it with Frigi - Fresh, a safe and guaranteed mildew killer. It also prevents the growth of more bacteria and mildew.

Your AC system should not make anything but a blowing noise when it’s running. If you hear grinding, banging, or any other strange sound, it’s time to bring it to our shop. The problem could simply be you have leaves and other debris blocking the ducts. Or, it could be a sign of one of the AC components failing. Do not leave it a mystery; pull into our shop and we will figure out the issue.

If you notice that your floorboard is wet and it hasn’t been raining, this is a sign of a problem with your AC. The most likely culprit is the buildup of bacteria in your A/C heater box under the dashboard. The bacteria causes a gunky film to grow in and clog the box. If this happens, you need to have the problem fixed immediately. It will further damage your system and your interior, causing costly repairs in the future.
