Understanding the Causes Behind Common Car Air Conditioning Repair Problems, St. Charles, Missouri

With temperatures on the rise, the last thing any driver wants is to find themselves needing car air conditioning repair. However, there is a wide range of problems that can affect your vehicle’s AC system. As the team at Frecks & Sons’ Automotive in Saint Peters, MO, explains, understanding the cause of your air conditioning woes can help you get fast and efficient repairs.

Top 3 Causes for Car Air Conditioning Repair

1. Warm Air

Few things will have you scheduling car air conditioning repair faster than warm air coming out of your AC. This problem can stem from something as simple as a clogged expansion valve to a more serious issue such as a leaking system or a failed compressor clutch. Because a system leak can cause serious damage to other parts of your vehicle, it’s recommended that you have your vehicle inspected and repaired right away if your system is blowing warm air.

2. Nasty Odors

3. Low Air Flow

Your air conditioner might still be producing cool air, but that won’t do you much good when there’s minimal air flow. This is most often the result of a faulty ventilation fan, but it could also be the result of mold growth in the evaporator core, a loose hose, or an issue with the system’s seals. 

Whether you need something as simple as an oil change or more involved work such as car air conditioning repair or engine repair, the technicians at Frecks & Sons’ Automotive will provide you reliable and affordable service.
