Replace Your AC Compressor with City Auto
Your air conditioner compressor, or A/C compressor, is crucial to keeping your car cool on a hot summer day. A car’s air conditioning system is comprised of several parts: the AC compressor, a condenser, a receiver dryer, an evaporator, and hoses. The A/C compressor is the core of your car’s air conditioning system.
Here’s a brief rundown of how it works: the A/C compressor compresses refrigerant (typically Freon), senses temperature changes, and uses the drive belt to convert liquid refrigerant into cool gas. This gas is used to cool the car’s interior. As your car’s mileage and age increases, the AC compressor can work less effectively as it once did. Some signs of an old or malfunctioning AC compressor are oil or Freon leaks, noisiness, and unreliability.
Not only are faulty AC compressors annoying and messy, they can be a real nuisance. Some of the internal parts can come apart and metal debris can get stuck throughout your car’s A/C system. If you suspect that your AC compressor isn’t working properly, visit a mechanic right away. Also, if you don’t use your car air conditioner regularly, turn it on every once in a while to keep the seals well lubricated.
