What Are The Most Common Car A/C Problems?

With cars running better than ever nowadays, it can be easy to take the vehicle’s air conditioning systems for granted. Once the A/C stops working, you’ll be forced to sit in the blasted heat. Fortunately, we make air conditioning repairs easy at Complete Car Care Encinitas. We can recharge your A/C system with refrigerant, seal the leak, or replace any component necessary so that you can be on your way to a more comfortable ride. Read on to learn about the top 3 common auto air conditioning people experience.

A/C Has Weak or No Air Flow

You might notice subtle coolness in your A/C, but it is nowhere near being enough to cool you and your passengers down. In some cases, the A/C may not cut on at all. The common issues behind this symptom is loose hoses, bad fans, electrical problems, and leaky seals. 

A/C Has a Bad Smell 

If you have a lingering odor coming from your vehicle’s A/C, it can be annoying to deal with. Let’s face it – the air fresheners in your car can only do so much to camouflage the smell. The bad smell usually stems from the accumulation of mold or mildew in the A/C system, which can be found in the evaporator or the air filter. 

A/C Blowing Warm or Hot Air

Imagine going to crank the A/C up just to be welcomed with more HOT air. With most cars nowadays, the cool air should kick on in a matter of seconds. If it continually blows warm air, it usually points to a refrigerant leak or a faulty component.
