Air conditioning is a standard feature in nearly every vehicle manufactured today. It is a necessity for most people to have it operating properly, especially in the warmer months. Making sure that the air conditioning system is maintained to assure that that cold air continues to blow will save you a lot of sweat in the future.
Signs that your air conditioning system needs maintenance:
When the air conditioning is operating, you will notice water dripping from underneath your vehicle. This is the air conditioning system pulling moisture out of your vehicle to keep the inside cool and dry. If you notice that it is a little warmer and humid inside your car, chances are there is an issue within the system. At times you may turn on your system and notice strange odors coming from the vents. This is common during the winter because it is an optimal space for bacteria and other organisms to grow while you are not using your air conditioning as normal. If your air conditioning has quit blowing cool air, chances are there is low refrigeration levels in the system. There is also a condenser that operates to cool the air and circulate it throughout the vehicle. When this fails it will cease to blow air through the system, usually caused by a blockage within the system. This will constrict air flowing properly. Bringing it in to your automotive repair shop will get is repaired and back in service.
