If your vehicle blows only hot or warm air from the vents, or cold air sporadically, or you begin hearing loud noises in the system, these indicate the need for air conditioning service or repairs. A/C system failures can be prevented with regular preventative checks and maintenance.
Major components of an automotive air conditioning system consist of the following:
Compressor – a belt-driven pump responsible for compressing and transferring refrigerant gas.
Condenser – hot compressed gases enter this unit, cool off, condense, then exit as a high-pressure liquid, this can sometimes be a common fault due to stones puncturing the unit, just like a radiator.
Evaporator – a component whose primary duty is to remove heat from the inside of your vehicle. A secondary benefit is de-humidification.
Refrigerant Fluid – commonly referred to as Freon or R134a, environmental laws specify that the recharging and handling of an air conditioning system refrigerant be performed by a certified automotive technician.
