Today’s AC Systems Are Complex
Your car’s AC system is a complex network of components, including the compressor, receiver and dryer, orifice tube or expansion valve, and filters. When it malfunctions, the experience of an expert is needed. Let Lamb’s help you ride in comfort.
Here are two of the most common fixes for a faulty AC system:
Change the AC Filter
This has an immediate and direct effect on your AC system. The filter sometimes gets clogged with debris, which makes the blower motor work harder and over heat. Eventually, the blower will fail completely.
Another result of this happening is that you turn the AC up higher to compensate. Then your fuel economy falls, too. Your filter is critical to making the entire AC system work properly.
Your inside cabin also has a filter. It is often in a difficult place to reach easily. Let our AC technicians check and change the cabin filter. This aids the system in working at peak performance.
Recharge the AC Compressor
Many times an AC recharge is all that is needed to get your system working efficiently. The compressor in the system provides the power to move the refrigerant through the system. It uses a drive belt to do this. Along the way, the refrigerant changes from gas to liquid and then back again to gas.
If there isn’t enough refrigerant in the system to make all this happen, the process fails. The refrigerant can also become contaminated and stops doing its job. All that drivers need to know is that refrigerant has to be replaced periodically. Our AC specialists will assess this fluid level and carry out a car AC recharge if necessary.
