A Hassle-Free Drive
Domestic home air conditioning is less common in The UK, but still sees widespread use in vehicles. From family people-carriers to tradesperson vans and trendy sports cars, these systems are fantastic. Providing a revitalising blast of chilled air, the system functions by cycling refrigerant, converting it from a gas into a liquid, and vice-versa. By the end of this process, the formula will remain in a cold gaseous state, sent to the cabin and circulated around the interior.
Even in the Winter, an interior can overheat, so a faulty system should almost immediately be rectified.
Identifying The Issue
Identifying the issue certainly won’t be easy, as the process of producing and circulating cold air takes place internally. Whether you have been notified via an odd unpleasant smell stemming from the air conditioning unit, or the functionality of this device has declined, issues can occur as a result of many routine actions, and may stem from:
- Internal obstructions
- Faulty cooling fans
- Damage to electrical systems
- Lower refrigerant levels
Though the best course of action will almost certainly be to seek a professional opinion, the D.I.Y enthusiasts among us may opt for a check of our own. Turn the air conditioning on while the car is running, and take note of air pressure, unfamiliar noises and unusual details related to the vent and motors. Proceeding to the internal workings of the system could be dangerous, so always leave this to a trusted pair of hands.
