Common signs you need car AC repair
You turn on your car’s air conditioner and nothing happens. That’s a dead giveaway that you need car AC repair.
There are other signs that also indicate your car’s air conditioning system needs work. When you notice these red flags, it’s time to contact the expert mechanics at Virginia Tire & Auto for car AC repair:
- Low or intermittent air pressure coming from the AC vents
- Musty odors
- Warm air instead of cool (this is a big one)
- Unusual noises like rattling, banging or loud blowing
- Pools of water or the appearance of water stains inside the vehicle
- Puddles of coolant around the vehicle
What can I expect when I need a car AC repair?
Most of the time, the solution is pretty simple! The first question our service technicians ask is whether your car’s air conditioner is pumping out warm air or no air at all.
If your car is pumping out warm air:
If your car’s AC is producing warm air, we’ll ask you to come into one of our 13 Virginia Tire & Auto locations across Northern Virginia for an evac and recharge. An expert mechanic will use a special machine to take the existing Freon out of your air conditioner, and then refill the correct amount. We’ll also add a UV-reactive dye — this allows us to see if there are any leaks in what should be a closed AC system.
If there are any leaks, a certified technician will refill the refrigerant and your car AC repair will be complete.
If your car is producing no air at all:
If your car’s AC is producing no air at all, there could be an issue with your blower motor, resistor, compressor or other mechanical or electrical component of your air conditioning system. A service professional will ask you to bring your car in for a full diagnostic check so our certified mechanics can make the right car AC repair for you.
