How Does My Car’s Air Conditioning Work?

A good A/C system is life saver in the sweltering months of summer. A/C in vehicles works by removing heat and humidity from inside your car. When the compressor is turned on, it begins to compress the system’s refrigerant (freon), raising its temperature. It loses heat as it flows through the condenser. The freon will pass through the receiver/dryer or accumulator where contaminants and moisture are removed. It will then pass through the expansion valve or orifice tube. As freon is passing through the expansion valve or orifice tube, this is where the freon pressure and temperature drops right before going through the evaporator core. The cold freon then chills the evaporator core as it circulates through. A blow motor pushes air from the cabin, or from outside, through vents in the evaporator core. As air passes through these vents, it drops the temperature of the air before it blows out into the vehicle to cool the cabin.

How Do I Know My Car A/C Is Leaking?

Leaks from your car are never good. Knowing how to spot and how to fix a car A/C leak can save you in the long run. A/C leaks are very hard to see with the untrained eye, so your best bet is to pay attention to other signs like clicking noises, dashboard alerts, or even unexpected changes in A/C temperature or volume. When you think you have a leak, bring your vehicle into Tires Plus and let the experts take care of it.
