What to Do If Your Car's Air Ventilation Isn't Cold - Air Conditioner Recharge Process

If your vehicle's air conditioner stops working, several things may have gone wrong. It could be a problem with the condenser or the fan, or perhaps even an electric short within the wiring, but more common is that it is simply low on refrigerant, or the a/c fluid has gone bad. A talented technician can quickly diagnose the problem and determine what is causing it. Assuming it is the refrigerant, the process has to be conducted by a certified shop that has proper safety equipment as the refrigerant can be quite harmful if it touches the skin.

Why a Vehicle's Air Conditioner Might Need Recharging

In some cases, the refrigerant needs to be changed because it has lost its effectiveness or as part of the vehicle's routine maintenance schedule when it is expected to go bad. The other case in which a recharge is needed is if there is a leak in the system. Because of the potential for a leak, a specialized refrigerant is used, which has a dye in it, so if it leaks again, the dye will reveal the leak's location. A leak can be especially dangerous if other work is needed, as is often the case if the car is old enough or has been damaged in a way to cause the leak. The most obvious symptom of the need for an a/c recharge is when the air conditioner is turned on, it blows cool air, but it doesn't get as cold as expected.

What Can Happen Without A/C in Your Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM

A car without air conditioning might not seem like an important repair for some people, especially in a cold area or during the winter months. The problem with that idea is the air conditioner also runs the windshield defroster. Without that working, visibility is decreased during conditions when the driver doesn't think they need air conditioning to cool the vehicle's interior. Another issue is how other systems might be affected. Without the air conditioner working properly, additional stress will be put on other parts of the ventilation system. As with any other repair issue, the car was designed to have the a/c even if you don't realize how often it's being used, and it will cause other problems not to have it repaired as soon as possible.
