Dealing with Air Conditioning Leaks
The automobile’s air conditioning carries a lot of value in the state of Texas. Our summer days are long and hot and driving around without functioning air conditioning can be unbearable. When something goes wrong with your A/C you’re likely to pick up on it relatively soon. It’s identifying the source of the problem and finding a proper solution that can be a little tricky.
When the A/C starts acting up it is highly likely the problem is being caused by some sort of leak. System leaks are the number-one auto air conditioning problem drivers experience on the road. Hopefully you spot the leak early enough to reduce the potential damage that can be done.
Leaks can happen anywhere in the air conditioning system. If refrigerant passes through certain components there lies a potential leak location.
Tip: If your car isn’t blowing cold air when turned on then the first thing you should look for is a leak. Leaking Freon is one of the most common causes to AC systems not blowing cold air.
Thankfully leaks, if found early enough, can often be a quick and painless repair. Over time hoses can get worn and cracked and start leaking. A stop leak product is usually all you need to seal it as long as it hasn’t gotten too big.
In some cases a component may need to be replaced but as long as the problem isn’t too severe then the service and repair shouldn’t break the bank. A damaged compressor or condenser might be a different story. Don’t be too shocked when you find out you’re paying upwards of $1000+.
