3 Common Car A/C & Heating Problems:

A/C Refrigerant Leak

Refrigerant leaks happen more in the winter than in summer because the system isn’t used much in cold months. Because it doesn’t run frequently, seals dry out, and the refrigeration levels lower, causing warm air to blow out of your unit. When your car loses refrigerant, chances are there is a leak. By law, you need to perform a leak test. You can buy leak detectors (with sensors) to find where the leaks are, but your best option is to head to your trusted dealership for maintenance.

There’s an Electrical Issue

Electrical issues within your car’s air conditioning may result from loose connections, such as damaged wires, blown fuses, or broken temperature sensors. The longer you fail to address electrical problems, the more you risk acid build-up. Acid build-up can damage and corrode components so much that a complete A/C system replacement is required.

Problems with Heater Core

Car heater problems are also frequently associated with heater core difficulties: coolant may not be traveling through the heater core properly, the air from the blower motor is not reaching it, or there’s a clog in the small tubing of the heater core.

Signs Your Car’s A/C Needs Repaired

When your vehicle’s air conditioning isn’t working or is on its way out, you can look for these three signs that something might be wrong with your car’s A/C.

  • Your A/C Is Blowing Hot Air: Hot air coming from your A/C likely could mean there’s a major problem. When water gets into your A/C, it combines with refrigerant and creates a highly corrosive acid that eats away at the parts of your A/C system. This acid can ruin rubber seals that prevent the refrigerant from leaking. If the refrigerant leaks, it can reduce your A/C’s cooling power.
  • Weird Smell: A funky smell coming from your A/C may mean it’s time for some attention. If your A/C blasts a weird smell in your face, it could mean mold—and, therefore, water—is present. The culprit might be a damp or dirty cabin air filter or a blocked drain in your evaporator case.
  • Weak Airflow: Excess moisture in the evaporator core could cause the building of mold and other debris that block airflow into the interior of your car. A loss of air pressure may also signal a restriction in the evaporator core or the blower motor failing.

Car A/C & Heating Questions & Answers

How does my car’s air conditioning work?

Your car’s air conditioning compresses refrigerant through several valves and small radiators until it reaches the evaporator, where it cools. This occurs when the refrigerant changes between liquid and gaseous states because doing so cools the refrigerant. The air conditioning motor then blows air over the evaporator, which cools the air before it reaches your vehicle’s cabin. This process may take a minute or two, so the air from your AC is initially the same temperature as the outside air before it cools down.

How does my car air conditioning use refrigerant?

The refrigerant in your vehicle transforms hot air into cool air by absorbing and releasing heat in a few stages. It’s a unique formulation made just for a vehicle’s air conditioning.
