Aircon Regas, Repair & Servicing
Making sure that your aircon stays cool through the summer months and warm through the winter months is essential in Western Australia. Midland and its surrounds can experience days over 40 degrees and nights close to 0 and having a faulty aircon or one that’s run out of gas can leave you very uncomfortable. If you’re noticing that your car doesn’t get as cool or warm as it used to then book in for a car aircon service at ABS Auto Midland
Signs your aircon needs repair
One of the last things you would wish for on a hot day is hot air conditioning when it’s already blazing hot outside. If that’s the case it’s likely the system is low on gas so it will not engage or one of the critical compoentents that run the system such as the compressor has worn out..
Generally, these are things that don’t usually improve, and an air conditioning service or repair may be required.
It’s a common side-effect while your air conditioning is on to sometimes develop visible moisture or water running under your vehicle. It’s perfectly normal and a sign of a working system, however excess water or moisture build up in side your car is often a sign of an issue.
The problem can be put right quite easily with a simple check of your cars air conditioning system drain hose which can become blocked over time with debris from outside the car.
Bacteria and residue from this excess build up can cause smells, this can be solved with the use of an antibacterial treatment which destroys bacteria growth and leaves your car fresh, see more on this below.
If your Air-con system is cold but it has a smell this does not necessarily mean it has a leak. It may have bacteria build up on the evaporator which is located behind your dash.
This is caused by the changing temps that allow moisture to build up on the evaporator that leads to a build-up of bacteria. So when you turn your Air-Con on and you get that musty smell, you may need an antibacterial service.
This generally involves running a non-intrusive chemical through a machine placed in your vehicle that kills the bacteria leaving your car with a new car smell rather than a musty one.
If you’re running your A/C and hearing noises coming from the system, it may be that a belt is requiring replacement or something is about to fail, like the compressor bearings or idler or tensioner pullys. If you hear hissing sounds from insode the car when the system is running it could mean you are getting low on gas due to a leak.
Air conditioning systems get used all year round, and not just in the blazing 40 degree WA summers. Often in the chill of winter you’ll be using you system to de-mist the windscreen, and trouble removing humidity can be an early sign of a faulty system.
It’s possible to experience reduced fluid flow from the ventilation after years of operation. This can be caused by damaged vent hoods or a dashboard switch. It could also mean the filter the air passes through before it gets to you is blocked or the blower fan is not working as it should. If you feel no air escaping from the vent contact our team to book an air conditioning system check.
