MOST COMMON HEAT & A/C QUESTIONS
Q : Why is my A/C not blowing air?
A: There’s nothing more frustrating than weak air flow on a hot summer’s day! Unfortunately, there’s no easy diagnosis here; insufficient air flow could stem from a number of problems.
Your refrigerant may be low, you need a refill or you have a leak in your A/C system
An instance of mold or mildew building up in the evaporator core.
It could also be a loose hose, a bad ventilation fan, or blown seals.
Q : Why is my car A/C blowing out warm air?
A: Warm air coming from your A/C is never a good sign. There could be a number of potential factors here, such as a clogged expansion valve; a faulty compressor clutch; a blown fuse; or even leaks within the A/C. The only way to know for sure what’s causing that warm air is to bring your car to Kings County Collision & Repair to have it inspected.
Q : What causes an air conditioning system leak?
A: A leak in your A/C is bad news, without question—but what causes it? The short answer: age and moisture. Over time, the rubber hoses and seals in your A/C lose elasticity and allow Freon to escape, all while allowing moisture to enter.
Q : How do you test for an A/C system leak?
A: If your A/C is leaking, there are a couple of methods we choose to detect leaks; One is to use black light-enabled dyes; many refrigerants are mixed with UV dyes, which allow them to show up under a black light.
Q : How do I stop the bad smells coming from my A/C vents?
A: Nobody likes an A/C that emanates bad smells! There are a couple of possible causes of A/C odors, the first being dirty, old air in the cabin filter. The second is an evaporator case that’s developed mold, which could point to more systematic problems with your unit.
Q: Every time I turn on my car A/C it makes a weird noise but works great! Where is the noise coming from?
A: It could be a minor engine noise or hose you’re hearing, but it could also be a symptom of problems with your compressor. This is the heart of the system, so have it checked if you hear anything unusual.
