A Car’s AC System is a Complicated Process
The air conditioning in today’s vehicle’s is a complicated system that most people don’t think too much about until it stops blowing cold air. The ASE-certified experts at Tire Works are factory-trained to service and repair the computerized components in your AC system and adhere to all environmental disposal requirements.
The Components of Your AC System
This is the core of the AC system. It acts like a simple pump and it compresses the refrigerant gas and transfers it into the condenser.
Located directly in front of the radiator, its function is to cool the refrigerant. It dissipates the heat released by the gases from the compressor.
The drier needs to be changed every 3-4 years. It absorbs moisture from the coolant and filters debris and acids from the system.
Orifice Tube/Expansion Valve
This regulates the flow of refrigerant throughout the entire system. It also turns the refrigerant into a liquid that can move into the evaporator.
This piece of the system is susceptible to becoming corroded by acids. It removes heat from the inside cabin of the car and reduces humidity. It also contains the most refrigerant as it does its job.
Signs That You May Need AC Service
Here are some red flags you can look for that could identify an AC problem early:
- Watch for water on the floorboards inside the car.
- Listen for fluttering sounds, unusual noises, or weak airflow.
- Pay attention to the dashboard indicator light for the AC.
