Automotive AC Inspection | Emission Time Offers a FREE Vehicle AC Check
Summer is approaching and before the heat gets too intense, get your vehicle’s AC unit inspected at Emission Time at no cost to you. Find out how the main automobile AC components help you stay cool in the summer:
- Compressor- The compressor compresses the refrigerant and passes heat to the evaporator. If you notice that air is not blowing out of the vents, your compressor may be the issue. The compressor itself has multiple parts that can cause it to stop working. If you notice that your AC is leaking refrigerant, the compressors seals may need to be replaced. Please note that refrigerant should be handled with caution as it can get cold enough to cause frostbite.
- The refrigerant carries the heat. If air is coming out of your vent, but it isn’t cold air, then you may be low on refrigerant.
- The condenser and evaporator are like two radiators. Whereas the condenser expels heat, the evaporator transfers heat to the refrigerant.
- The receiver/dryer is a filter that removes moisture and debris.
