Car Mechanics Share 4 Common Problems With Auto AC Systems, Anchorage, Alaska

The car mechanics at Dean’s Automotive Service Center in Anchorage, AK, receive several clients every summer who experience issues with their air conditioning systems. With extensive experience in the areas of heating and cooling systems, their technicians have the technology and the knowledge to inspect your vehicle, detect the source of the problem and then ensure that your interior is kept cool and comfortable all summer long.

If you’ve noticed an issue with your car’s AC system, check out the following major problems fixed by the professional car mechanics at Dean’s Automotive Service Center:

  • Leaks: Your air conditioning system in your car will not function without refrigerant, which is why leaks should be repaired as soon as possible. When moisture enters your unit, it allows corrosive acids to cause leaks in seals and other components, thus draining your system of refrigerant.
  • Smells: The quality of air inside your automobile is largely determined by the condition of your AC system. If musty smells are coming from your vents, then you’re probably past-due to replace your cabin filter. Alternatively, you could have a moldy evaporator case.
  • car mechanicWarm Air: A variety of things could cause your AC system to stop functioning altogether, including a leak, a clogged hose, a failed compressor, broken blower motor or a dysfunctional switch. The only way to determine the source of the problem is to ask your car mechanic for an inspection.
  • Reduced Airflow: Debris in the ventilation system, a loose connection or a broken ventilation fan could all cause your air conditioner to stop circulating air throughout your vehicle. Another common issue is worn-down sealing.

Spotting these problems with your air conditioning system early will allow you to expediently communicate your concerns to your car mechanic.
