Keep Your Apache Junction, AZ Air Conditioning System Working Properly
Various signs signal that a car’s Apache Junction, AZ air conditioning system may not be working properly. Taking your car in at the first sign of trouble will save you money and time. If the problem is not addressed, it could lead to costly repairs to the vehicle such as to the engine or electrical system.
One of the most common indications of trouble is hot air blowing from the air vents. Typically, this is caused by a leak in the refrigerant. If hot air is blowing, do not ignore it because leaking refrigerant is dangerous and can harm your car’s compressor.
Odd noises also signal that there is a problem. The compressor is driven by a belt that circulates the coolant. When the belt stretches or becomes worn or cracked, it can break or slip and cause noises to occur. It may also stop the compressor from working. If this occurs, air will no longer circulate and the air conditioner will no longer cool. It could cause damage to the car’s engine if it is not repaired right away.
No air blowing from the air vents is also a sign that there is a problem with the Apache Junction, AZ air conditioning system. Generally, this is caused by a blown fuse. It may also be a problem with the blower’s switch.
Strange smells such as a musty or a mildew odor coming from the fan when the air is turned on is also a sign of a problem that may need repair.
If these or other signs are noticed, bring your car to our well-established and reputable automotive repair shop for a full inspection of your air conditioning system. This is the best way to avoid further damage to your vehicle and to keep your system working properly.
