If you live in the greater Atlanta area, you know that Georgia can be brutally hot in summer, particularly in July when the average high temperature is 89.1 degrees. If your vehicle is parked in the sun, the air inside the passenger cabin will likely be about 109 if you return after just 10 minutes and 124 degrees after a half hour. You need to cool off quickly, but what if your AC isn’t working? Before you panic–or roast–bring your auto to Motorcars International in Smyrna, GA, for preventive maintenance services or repairs to your air conditioning system.
It’s always a good idea to have us check your AC before you desperately need it. This will allow us to spot potential problems that may have developed when you weren’t needing to cool off very often. Once an outage has occurred, however, we’re glad to fix that for you, too. The hottest topics in auto AC repair are those issues our technicians see develop most often. For example, if an electrical problem such as a broken wire develops, the AC system may not have power to operate. Also, airborn road debris or flying rocks sometimes puncture the condenser, or it can become blocked. If either of these happens, the result is improper heat exchange. Further, if the compressor fails, the refrigerant cannot circulate through the air conditioning system. Improperly working fans can cause the condenser not to cool properly, keeping the temperature of the refrigerant to be too warm to properly cool the car. Sometimes the blend air door, the component that allows warm and cool air to mix to achieve the set temperature, sticks over the cooler season. When you attempt to use the AC once the weather warms again, you may get only hot entering into the passenger cabin. Finally, if a small hole develops anywhere in the system, refrigerant will leak, leaving an insufficient level for proper cooling.
