How Does an A/C Provide Cool Air?
The main components of the air conditioning system of a vehicle are the compressor, condenser, evaporator, and refrigerant. The parts of the system are able to produce cool air to the cabin of a vehicle by manipulating the refrigerant between a gaseous and liquid state. The compressor pumps refrigerant through the A/C system, the condenser changes the refrigerant from a gas to a liquid, and the evaporator turns it back into a gas. Each part of the system needs to be in good condition to do its job of providing you with cold air in your vehicle.
Common Problems with a Vehicle’s A/C
Oftentimes, when a vehicle goes into a service department for an A/C problem, it can be traced back to a leak in the system. If a leak does occur, the refrigerant will escape. This often leads to a lack of cool air coming from the vents no matter what temperature you set your A/C to. A lack of cold air isn’t the only side effect of a leak in the system, however. It could also cause contaminants to enter the system and put its parts at risk for damage. Another big issue that it could create is a damaged compressor which can be caused by it not having enough refrigerant to prevent overheating.
When you take your vehicle in for A/C repairs or inspections, a technician will ask you a few questions to get a better idea of where to begin. Usually, an inspection will start with a technician evaluating the system visually. If they believe it could be a leak, they can remove any existing refrigerant and perform a vacuum test. This will help locate a leak quickly and efficiently.
