Car Aircon Not Working? Call HAC Aircon at Rockhampton


Your car air-conditioner not as cold as it used to be? These are some of the problems and the best way to fix them, get ice cold air again at a fair price.

Why Do Car Air Conditioners Need to Be Re-Gassed?


If you notice reduced not-so-cold airflow early on, rather than later, take the right step and have it looked at before other fatal A/C system damage can occur.

There are several reasons an A/C system can lose its cool. Bring your vehicle to us as soon as you start noticing this symptom, it could mean the difference between needing a small repair, or worse, a large one. Here’s what can cause your cold air to lose its cool.

 

The lack of precious cold air could be caused by:


  • A Refrigerant leak caused by a failed o-ring, seal, hose or component
  • A clogged expansion tube or refrigerant charging hose
  • Failed compressor or compressor clutch
  • Failed blower motor or blower motor resistor
  • Damaged or failed condenser or evaporator
  • Vacuum leaks
  • Failed switch, fuse, relay, control module, blend door or solenoid


Leaks can be devastating. When an A/C system develops a leak, you have what’s called an “open system.” If your technician discovers the leak early, your repair could be less expensive.

Unfortunately, if a leak has been affecting your cold air for a while, moisture will most likely have entered your A/C system and may have damaged other vital and expensive parts. Stay cool. Schedule an A/C Performance Check now.


The A/C starts out cool then starts getting warm, what’s happening?


Well, like many complicated stories, there’s never one simple answer. A/C systems are a fickle breed. Your best bet is to have us inspect your system for any of the following listed symptoms.

From cold to hot and all the symptoms in between:

  • The clogged expansion valve: The expansion valve distributes the proper amount of refrigerant to your evaporator. If the valve is blocked, the refrigerant can’t flow into the evaporator. With the valve clogged, the refrigerant will start to freeze the valve altogether if moisture is present.

  • Faulty compressor clutch: If the clutch is not engaging with your compressor, than your compressor can’t maintain the correct pressure. Hot air will result.

  • The blown fuse scenario: Fuses sometimes short out. If the fuse associated with your A/C system goes, the power to certain parts will stop.

  • Leaks are an A/C system’s worst friend: Leaks are the result of damage or the presence of moisture. When moisture and refrigerant mix, nasty corrosive acids will eat away at seals and components, causing a leak.

Our expert advice


We recommend using your car's air conditioning system all year round. It is best to run the system for at least 10 minutes every month to keep the seals lubricated and so prevent leakage. Regular operation also stops unpleasant odors developing as a result of moisture forming in the filter or due to the build-up of bacteria.
