Car Air Conditioning Repair
Air Conditioning Service and Repairs
A compressor inside the air conditioning system includes a refrigerant, which is the gas. When the air conditioning is turned on, the compressor compresses the gas and pushes it to the condenser. The temperature of the gas drops quickly as fresh air from outside the vehicle flows over the condenser, causing the refrigerant to liquify. Now in liquid form, a drier removes impurity before reaching a thermal expansion valve which essentially allows the driver to control the temperature in the car by limiting the liquid flow. Lastly, the liquid is turned into vapour as it travels through evaporation coils and is then blown into the cabin as cool air. Meanwhile, the refrigerant, now back in gas form, returns to the compressor to start the process all over again.
The refrigerant gas in your car’s air conditioning system depletes with time, especially if it isn’t used on a regular basis. To keep your air conditioning running at its best, car manufacturers recommend getting an air conditioning service every two years.
Most cars now come with air conditioning as standard. Did you know that if you do not maintain your car’s air conditioning system throughout the year, it might not have the power to cool you down in the summer months? But did you also know that your cars air conditioning actually heats better than it cools? Your air conditioning system is really good at clearing the condensation off your windscreen, removing the moisture from the air and warming the car in the cold winter months so it is ideal for year-round use.
