Since the weather has just recently turned warmer, you probably haven’t been getting much use out of your car’s A/C unit for a few months. Here are a few common issues people tend to notice once they turn the air conditioning back on in their car:
• A distinctive rattling or humming noise occurs when the A/C unit is turned on.
This noise could be caused by your engine or a hose, but it could also have to do with your air conditioner’s compressor. If there is a problem with the compressor, you should bring your car in right away, as the compressor is essential to keeping your A/C unit working properly.
• The air coming through the vents smells bad.
The foul smell coming through your car’s vents are likely caused by a dirty air filter that needs replacing, or more commonly a build-up of bacteria in the evaporator. For either problem, the mechanics at De Vellis Auto are prepared to provide fast and reliable repairs.
• The air conditioner doesn’t blow cold air at all.
This is likely due to the fact that the refrigerant in your A/C unit needs to be refilled, or is leaking somewhere. In either case, De Vellis Auto mechanics can take care of the problem.
