There is nothing worse than being without AC in Florida, whether it is in your home or your car. If you are dealing with some of the more obvious signs that the AC isn’t working, then you will know it is time for a repair. But are there ways to know before your AC stops working all together?
In general, the big parts of your AC system in your car- like the condenser and compressor – can last about 8 to 10 years. This is different case by case, so this is a rough estimate. You can also be proactive and get your system checked periodically to see if everything appears to be in working condition.
Hearing Loud Noises Coming From Your AC System
We can tell a lot about the health of our car based on out of place noises, and your AC system is no different. In general, when you are hearing these loud noises coming from your AC unit it may be a sign that your compressor needs some attention. If you are hearing noises that are abnormal coming from your air conditioning unit, it may be time to take your car in for Auto AC Repair.
Warm Air Blowing From The AC
This is one of the symptoms that will be uncomfortably obvious. Do you have to turn the AC to a higher setting to get it to just barely cool your vehicle? If the AC in your vehicle is not blowing as cool as it usually does, or if it is blowing hot air at you, your best bet will be to take it to All County Automotive to get it assessed and repaired right away to make your commuting experience more comfortable.
There Is An Odor Coming From Your AC
There should never be a smell coming through your car with the air the AC is blowing. If you are experiencing an unpleasant, funky odor there is a possibility that there could be mold in your unit. This is something that can be resolved by taking your car to your trusty technicians. If you are experiencing more chemical smells like gas, or a sweet smell, it could be an indication that there is a leak in your AC unit, or an even bigger problem to be dealt with. These sorts of smells should not be neglected and should be addressed with your technicians right away.
If you are experiencing any issues with your AC unit, we highly recommend taking your car to be looked at by a professional, like those at All County Automotive. Auto AC repair can be difficult and time consuming for individuals who are not trained and certified to resolve these sorts of problems. Though it is frustrating and generally surprising when your car needs a repair, the team at All County Automotive can get you back on the road right away.
