Why Is the A/C in My Car Not Working?

Air conditioning is a must when it comes to spring and summer driving in Tampa, FL. And most of us take it for granted until we can't feel the cool air blowing anymore. With spring in full swing, now is the perfect time to have your A/C checked by professional mechanics. Otherwise, it could suffer from one of these problems later on this season.


Common A/C Problems

  • Refrigerant Leak - Refrigerant, also known as freon, is the cooling factor for the air. A leak of this stuff is one of the most common ways a car A/C stops working. Often, it bleeds out of seals or hoses that have worn down over time. The experts at our shop can pinpoint the leak, patch it up, and top you off on freon so that you can be on your way.
  • Broken Compressor - The compressor in your car's air conditioning system makes sure the air and freon are circulated. A common reason for this component to go bad is going too long without using the A/C. 
  • Blocked Condenser - The condenser is what allows the air outside your car in before getting depressurized and cooled. When this part is damaged, you probably won't get much airflow at all. The condenser can fail for a number of reasons, including damage from road debris. 
  • Electrical Issues - Last but not least, electrical problems like blown fuses, broken switches, and frayed wires can occur within the system. You'll need a technician with electrical experience to work out this problem.

If you're having problems with your car's air conditioning system or simply want to have it inspected for the spring, please bring your vehicle to Brazzeal Automotive. Our skillful technicians can ensure your A/C works all spring and summer long, so you don't have to worry about it!
