Nissan A/C Recharge in Garden Grove, CA
We rely on more than our home air conditioner during the hot summer months to keep cool and comfortable. Drivers also rely on their vehicle's air conditioner. On a hot day, you can open your windows, but this won't keep you nearly as cool as your car's air conditioner will. The A/C system in your vehicle is pressurized. For the system to function properly, it needs to be completely sealed. Over time, the pressurized system can develop a leak, which will make it difficult for your air conditioner to provide cold air. If this happens, you will need to have your A/C recharged. If you are just about due for a car A/C recharge, there will be signs to look for.
The Vehicle Isn't Getting As Cool as Usual
If you turn on the air conditioning in your vehicle and it doesn't cool the car down the way it should, it might be time to have your A/C recharged. To function properly, your A/C needs to circulate pressurized refrigerant throughout the system. If the refrigerant level drops, the vehicle's A/C system will lack the means to cool the air being pushed through it and won't get cold.
The A/C System Clutch Won't Engage
When your vehicle's air conditioner is working properly, you should hear a clicking sound when turning on the A/C, which means that the clutch is engaging. If the system's pressure level is too low, the pressure switch won't activate, and the clutch won't engage. If the clutch cannot engage, it won't be able to circulate what refrigerant you have left in the vehicle to keep you and your passengers cool.
Signs Of Refrigerant Leaks
If there are any visible signs of refrigerant leaks, you should have your A/C recharged. You could notice the leak around the fitting or components of the A/C. You might also see a puddle of refrigerant under the vehicle. Until you have the problem fixed, the refrigerant will continue to leak out until there is none left. When you have your A/C recharged, the mechanic will refill the refrigerant and repressurize the system.
