Your car's air conditioning system is a crucial part of your car. While it isn't necessary to operate your car, it can be a lifesaver on those hot summer days. There is nothing more frustrating than hopping in your boiling car on a 90-degree day and turning on your AC for it to not even work. Then you will need to resort to rolling down your windows to cool off, which can cause a variety of other discomforts.

If you are having problems with your car's AC system, it might need to be recharged. Of course, there are a variety of things that can go wrong with your AC. But Wrench is here to take care of it all. Whether you need an AC Evacuate and Recharge, AC Compressor Replacement, AC Condenser Replacement, or AC Line and Hose Replacement, we have got you covered. To learn more about your car's AC system and how to tell if you might need an AC recharge service, keep reading!

The Role Of AC In Your Car

Many car owners don't know how the AC system works. The air conditioning system simply takes the warm air and uses pressure changes to cool it down and return it to the cabin of your car. When you turn on the AC, the compressor compresses the refrigerant which raises its temperature. Then it goes through the condenser and loses heat. After that, the contaminants and moisture gets removed from the receiver. When the refrigerant gets to the accumulator, it gets slowed down which causes it to lose pressure. Finally, the refrigerant reaches the evaporator where it continues to cool down until the motor blows air over the cold evaporator and into the cabin in your car.

What Does It Mean To Have Your AC Recharged?

An AC Evacuate and Recharge service occurs when a mechanic replaces the refrigerant in your car. However, this isn't a service that you need annually. Some vehicles don't need to get their AC recharged in their whole lifespan. Since the AC system is a closed system, you won't need to worry about it unless it is having issues functioning properly. Most of the time, a refrigerant leak is the cause of any AC issues.

An AC Evacuate and Recharge service is complicated and should be left to a professional that has been trained in auto repair. There are various things that your mechanic will know such as how to identify refrigerant leaks or how much refrigerant to put in during the service. If you attempt to perform this service at home, you might miss a crucial piece of information, sending you to an automotive expert anyways.

Signs Your AC Needs To Be Recharged

If your AC system is working like usual, there isn't a need to get it checked by a mobile mechanic. However, if your AC isn't blowing cold air or has other issues, those are pretty good indicators that you need a mobile mechanic to inspect your AC system.

Here are some common signs that you need to recharge your AC system:

  • Your Car Doesn't Blow Cold Air
    This is the most common and obvious sign that there is something wrong with your AC system. If your AC isn't blowing cold air and only blows warm or hot air, that is a problem. You might have a refrigerant leak or another issue and it won't get resolved if you ignore it. You will need to book an appointment with a qualified as soon as you can.
  • Air Doesn't Get Cool Enough
    Similarly to the previous sign if your AC doesn't cool down your car enough, even if it is on full blast, that could be a good sign that there is an underlying problem. Get this checked out by a professional and your AC will be working again in no time.
  • Visible Signs Of Refrigerant Leaks
    Another obvious sign that you need an AC Evacuate and Recharge is leaking refrigerant. You should never find your refrigerant leaking, and if it is, you will need to repair the leak and change your refrigerant. There are many reasons why your refrigerant might be leaking such as corrosion, factory defects, wear and tear, vibrations, or improper installation. No matter what caused the leak, your AC won't be working properly until you visit a professional.
