Vehicle drivers often spend long hours out on the road and it’s important that the conditions are comfortable. The last thing you need is to discover that your air conditioning isn’t working, especially during the hotter summer months. A functioning air conditioning system is an essential part of ensuring that your journeys are comfortable, so it’s important to fix any issues as soon as possible.
With this in mind, if you notice any of the warning signs below, get in touch with an engineer to arrange air conditioning repairs.
The air isn’t cold
Your air conditioning system may still be working by producing air, but if the air is warm then it’s no use. This is often a sign that the refrigerant needs to be topped or recharged and you may be able to refill it yourself.
A bad odour
Noone wants to have a bad smell blown throughout their vehicle and this is usually a good indicator that your air conditioning system needs to be cleaned. Dust and dirt can build up and become trapped over time, which then harbours bacteria that causes the unpleasant smell. An engineer will be able to take apart your system and give it a thorough clean so that it’s good as new.
Condensation on your dashboard or the interior of your vehicle is a sure sign that something’s gone wrong with your air conditioner. Air conditioners work by changing a gas into liquid, and then back to gas, in order to cool the air. If you notice water droplets then this means that something has gone wrong during the process, so take your vehicle in for examination.
A rattling sound
A rattling or banging sound suggests that the condenser or fan belt of your air conditioning system is worn out. There might also be dirt or debris clogging the system and you may notice other signs like an unpleasant smell or a weaker air flow.
