Signs Your Car Needs An Air Con Service

There are three main signs and symptoms that your car air conditioning needs a refill or a service:

The Obvious: Not Cooling Down

The most common symptom of a vehicle air conditioning issue is that you have noticed a gradual loss in the overall cooling capability of the A/C system. You may notice that:

  • The air is not blowing as cold as it was before.
  • The air is not actually cold air at all.

This can usually be solved by simply booking in to have your car air conditioning re-gassed.

AC Makes Weird Noises

When you turn on your A/C you should only hear the fan blowing cool air. If instead you can hear a banging, rattling or squealing sound, that is a bad sign. Your A/C may need a re-gas or there may be an issue with the fan.

Bad Smell

If you turn on your vehicles air conditioning and you notice a bad smell, you need get this checked out. An unpleasant smell often indicates that mold is growing inside the system. This air is not safe for adults or children to breathe and should be checked immediately.
