Your car’s A/C require refrigerant to operate properly and produce cold air when you turn on the A/C or lower the temperature. Over time this refrigerant can leak out of your car’s A/C system due to aging seals, worn lines, and other various leaks.
Older cars could hold much more refrigerant than current models and these larger reservoirs made the practice of topping it off much like you would your car’s windshield washer fluid commonplace. However, as refrigerants are a greenhouse gas auto manufacturers switched to less harmful refrigerants and also decreased the amount of refrigerant a car could hold. This is why fixing leaks is so important as it not only returns your car’s A/C to proper operation it also protects the environment.
Your car being low on A/C refrigerant is relatively easy to detect by turning on your A/C and testing the air temperature. The most apparent sign is that your car’s A/C puts out no cold air at all and puts out either hot or lukewarm air at even the coldest settings. Your car’s A/C being low on refrigerant doesn’t always result in it not working at all in some cases the A/C does still work but the air isn’t nearly as cold as it should be or the cooling is not consistent. When it’s hot no matter if its Kaufman or Kemp you want your A/C working consistently.
The most common cause of A/C refrigerant issues is due to leaks in the system and simply adding more refrigerant does not fix the underlying issue plus adding too much of it can damage your car’s A/C system. A professional technician has the proper tools to pressure check your system, find where the lakes are located, patch them, and then add as much refrigerant as your car may need. In some cases, components may need to be replaced and professional servicing can determine this.
