Signs Your A/C May Need Service
If you are noticing any of the following signs, it may be time to bring your vehicle in to Auto Repair Pros for an A/C service:
- Hot air coming out of the vents
- No air coming out of the vents
- Loud noises when you turn the A/C on
- Musty smell coming out of the vents
Common Issues with A/C
When you bring your vehicle in to get serviced at Auto Repair Pros, one of our ASE Certified Mechanics will run a performance check and diagnose the problem with your air conditioning.
Most of the problems will be the result of one of the following issues:
- Leaking refrigerant – If there is no cold air coming out of your a/c, it could indicate a leak in the system. The most common leaks occur at the A/C unit hose connections.
- Blocked or broken condenser – if the condenser is blocked or broken, the refrigerant cannot be properly re-cooled after being compressed and your car will continue to blow hot air.
- Broken compressor – the compressor is responsible for pressurizing the refrigerant to cool the air and keeping it moving throughout the system.
- Broken fans – if your cooling fan is malfunctioning or damaged, it may cause the condenser to overheat and you’ll get hot air coming out of the A/C.
- Electrical issue – we will visually check to make sure there are no broken or frayed wires, blown fuses, or broken temperature sensors connecting your A/C.
How long does it take to repair my vehicle's A/C?
A/C repairs can vary from a few minutes to a day or more. Schedule an appointment and our ASE Certified Mechanics will diagnose the issue with your vehicle’s A/C unit. Once we know what’s wrong, we will communicate a timeline for the repair.
If you want to stay cool as the weather outside heats up, schedule your A/C service at one of our convenient Auto Repair Pros locations.
What is an ASE Certified Mechanic?
We have mentioned several times that Auto Repair Pros employs ASE Certified Mechanics. So, what does that mean? ASE is short for the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence, an independent non-profit organization formed in 1972 with the mission of improving the quality of vehicle repair and service.
In order to become ASE certified, our associates must pass an ASE certification test and have at least two years of on-the-job training, or one year of on-the-job training and a two-year degree in automotive repair to qualify for certification.
Because automotive technology is advancing at a rapid pace, our ASE Certified Mechanics must keep up their education and retest every five years.
