Vehicle AC Systems Are Complex
Your car’s AC system consists of the compressor, receiver and dryer, orifice tube or expansion valve, and filters. It’s a complex system and when it malfunctions, an expert is needed to diagnose the problem. Let Lamb’s AC specialists keep you riding around in comfort.
Two of the most common fixes for a faulty AC system:
Change the AC Filter
This action generally has an immediate effect on your AC system. The filter can get clogged with debris, which makes the blower motor work harder. The harder it works with no resolution the more likely it is to overheat. Eventually, the blower will fail completely.
When your AC system doesn’t allow cold air to pass through the vents into your car, you turn it up to compensate. Your fuel economy falls, too. A clean AC filter is essential to making the entire AC system work properly.
Did you know that there is an inside cabin filter, as well? But it is located in a difficult area to access. Let Lamb’s AC technicians check the cabin filter and change it, if needed. This can enable your system to work at peak performance.
Recharge the AC Compressor
Many times a car AC recharge is all it takes to get your system working efficiently. The AC compressor in the system, along with the drive belt, provides the power to move the coolant through the whole system. A complex process changes the coolant from gas to liquid and back to gas. Low levels of coolant can eventually cause failure in the system or it could become contaminated, which will hinder it from doing its job.
For the purpose of staying cool, all you need to know is that the coolant has to be replenished (recharged) periodically. Our AC specialists will advise you when it is time for a recharge.
