No one likes a long, sweaty car ride, especially when they were expecting to be enjoying air conditioning along the way. Making sure the car air conditioner is working correctly will save you a world of discomfort and irritation.

It’s rare to think about potential car air conditioner problems while you’re living it up, driving through the summer heat, cool and comfortable. However, even when your car's air conditioning is working well, there are steps you can take to preserve its longevity.

Preventative Maintenance for Your Car Air Conditioning System

Nobody wants their car air conditioning system to quit on them, especially on a hot day unexpectedly. Luckily, there’s preventative maintenance to work to prevent this from happening.

Preventative maintenance is performing checks and fixes on your car to keep it going strong even when it’s already working well. While we’re happy to do preventative maintenance on your car’s air conditioning system at Schmidt Auto Care, you can also take steps independently.

Below are some steps you can take on your own or have our mechanics take care of at Schmidt Auto Care.  

  • Change an old cabin air filter
  • Change and clean other filters
  • Check refrigerant levels and check for leaks
  • Wash out condenser coils with water
  • Operate the air conditioning system periodically 

Sometimes, even when a car air conditioning system is blowing cold air, there can be lurking problems indicative of a more significant problem that warrants repair. Let’s check out exactly how to tell when to take your car into the shop so you can be blowing cold air through the summer. 

How Do You Know If Your Auto Air Conditioning System Needs Service?

There are several signs to watch out for to ensure your car can blow cold air through the summer. It’s even essential for those spring and fall days when the sun has beaten down on your vehicle, and it’s like an oven inside. All you hope for in those times is your air conditioning system blowing cold air at you while you bask in relief.

At Schmidt Auto Care, we want you to get to your destination in the comfort of cold air when needed. That’s why we have some telltale signs that your car’s air conditioning system needs a tune-up listed below. 

  • No cool air is coming in from the vents
  • Inconsistent or uneven cooling
  • Poor or no, airflow 
  • Moisture around the compressor
  • A strange odor inside the vehicle

Your car air conditioner has three major parts: the compressor, condenser, and evaporator. Cool air will flow into the car when these three components work well. If you are experiencing issues, your car repair mechanic can resolve them. It’s important to us at Schmidt Auto Care to help our community - our expert Springboro mechanics ensure your car’s air conditioner blows cold air when you need it most. 

For The Handy: DIY Solutions to Simple Car Air Conditioning Problems

With all of this in mind, we’re all about enabling our community to do minor fixes to their car’s air conditioner on their own at Schmidt Auto Care! Some common fixes can be done by yourself if you’re feeling handy. If DIY is your thing, we’ve got you covered.

At a minimum, bringing your car in after having more of an idea of the problem can allow us to perform a more informed diagnostics test.  Below are some parts of your car’s air conditioner you can check before bringing it into the shop for air conditioning repair. 

  • Checking the cabin air filter
  • Inspecting the condenser and compressor
  • Testing the electrical connections
  • Adding refrigerant
  • Cleaning the system

The Parts Mechanics Use When Repairing a Car’s Air Conditioning 

Only some fixes can be done at home - for those less mechanically inclined, bringing the car into the shop is the next step for its air conditioner repair.

Since your auto air conditioning repair & services can include a range of problems ranging from minor to larger scale, our mechanics will run a series of car AC repairs and inspections that may have: 

  • Output temperature check
  • System fan check
  • Hose and belt inspection 
  • Blower fan and compressor inspection
  • Freon level check
  • Check for faulty switches or wiring
  • Looking for fuse problems
  • Testing the compressor seal

What Should You Expect From Air Conditioner Inspection Done By AC Repair Experts?

Some repairs need full-time experts to tackle complicated problems. A leak could still occur even if your car's system is still sealed.

In that case, your auto air conditioning may need a recharge. When this is done, your mechanic will merely add refrigerant. Another strategy the mechanic may use is to inject a fluorescent dye to allow visual identification of any leaks that may be present in the air conditioning system. This will assist in bringing up the pressure on the manufacturer's specifications. 

Suppose you are facing any car A/C problems or car heating system problems. In that case, we can diagnose the issue with our Air Conditioning performance check by ASE Certified Auto Technicians - you can trust Schmidt Auto Care as the expert in air conditioning repair.

Below is a more general outline of the mechanics' steps to determine the problems with a car air conditioning system. 

  • Run a performance test
  • Visually inspect all A/C system components
  • Perform a system state of charge test
  • Perform a system control test
  • Perform a leak test

General Cost of Air Conditioning Repair

It’s possible, especially after reading these steps and potential problems, that some Springboro drivers could be wary of getting their car air conditioning repaired out of a legitimate concern that it’s too expensive. Let’s break down the factors that go into the cost of an air conditioning repair and determine its cost. 

  • Air conditioning unit size
  • Age of car and air conditioning unit
  • Type of repair needed
  • Warranty Details

That’s right! Some car air conditioners are actually covered under their warranty. Don’t worry if your car is out of warranty, though.

Air conditioning repairs are not as scary as you may think. The average cost of repairing a car’s air conditioner is only $369. The general range for car air conditioner repair is between $100-$600, with some exceptions. While there are complicated parts, this repair pales in comparison to more serious problems with your vehicle.

We hope that having a general idea of what it may cost to repair your car’s air conditioning, and the factors that affect the cost, will help you make a more informed decision about your car’s air conditioning system repair.
