Auto A/C Service Mesa, AZ
With summer now in full furnace blast, many Arizona residents are just now discovering the inadequacies of their car’s air conditioning system.
"Temperate weather can mask a poorly operating system" says Automotive Engineering's A/C Services Techs., Some of Mesa's leading auto repair shop Mechanics. "You don’t know the real limits of your system until the temperatures hit the triple digits."
A poorly operating AC system may only be able to drop the temperature in a car or truck by five or 10 degrees lower than the outside temperature, and when it’s only the 90s that might feel good enough. But when it's 105 degree outside, that typically isn’t enough for most people to be comfortable.
When an over-heated Mesa resident bring their car to Auto A/C Repair Shops in Mesa, Arizona, the first step for the professional mechanics, who are all ASE certified, is to test the vehicle to see just how well it can cool. Next, comes trouble-shooting to determine the exact problem with the AC system.
Some of the most likely issue if your car or truck as AC problems are: low refrigerant level, blown fuse or a wiring problem, defective magnetic clutch (which gets power to the compressor), or a faulty compressor. Most often the issue with an AC system that won't cool well is a loss of refrigerant from a leak in a hose connection, seals and through microscopic pores in the hose. Newer cars are less prone to leaks, but even the small leaks can affect cooling performance.
This automotive service shop, which offers dealership-quality service at independent prices, can lower the vehicle cabin temperature by as much as 100 degrees, depending on the car or truck, its age and the efficiency of the AC system. Rux says that he’s gotten cabins down to as chilly as 45 degrees Fahrenheit. "You could have stored meat in that car´s cabin," he says.

Make sure the car is blowing air into the cab, start the vehicle and turn the ac on with the air on high. If air is present, is that air cold, cool or warm? Cold air means system if functioning, but may need servicing for even colder air. Cool air indicates that the system needs service, and may have a significant freon leak or weak system. Warm air suggest that your automobile air conditioning system has malfunctioned. With the air still on high, cycle the a/c button or switch on the the air conditioning control panel. Do you hear the compressor switch on and off? This will sound like a loud tick one time under the hood. Thus the same sound should be heard every time you cycle the ac. If the compressor is cycling on and off, but the cab is not cooling, then you may be low on freon. The system may have air or moister, due to a large freon leak. The system may be inefficient or cold air is not being diverted, this is due to a malfunction in the air ducting via electrical, engine vacuum or control panel failure. A complete inspection of your automobiles cooling system will also play a factor in ac efficiency. Another way to check for a/c efficiency would be to inspect the accumulator with the air conditioning on and running. This component is a cylinder under the hood and may have a sticker on it from the factory. The receiver drier aka accumulator will be cold and may have condensation on it, when the air conditioning system is working properly.
