COOLING THINGS OFF!
Your car's A/C doesn't make cold air, it's actually a cool magician that removes heat and moisture from the air inside your car, leaving you with a breezy chill. Understanding how your A/C works and spotting early warning signs can save you from bigger, pricier repairs down the line.
A/C System Red Flags:
- Air from vents feels more like a whisper than a breeze.
- It's hot, and the air isn't cooling down.
- Air feels only somewhat cool.
- A/C controls seem to have a mind of their own.
- Strange smells or sounds when A/C is running
A/C System Repairs:
The most common auto A/C repairs involve the compressor, condenser, evaporator, accumulator (or receiver-drier) and orifice tube (or expansion valve). To pinpoint the exact problem, Honest1’s Roadworthy Experts will perform an extensive inspection of the A/C components including:
- A/C control panel (located on the interior of the car)
- Air temperature command
- Front and Rear (if applicable) motor blower operation
- Cabin air filter
- Service Ports/Schrader Valves
- Contamination test on 1234YF
- Static and operating pressure
- A/C accessory belt
HEATING THINGS UP!
The heating function of your vehicle's HVAC system keeps you cozy on those cold days and often gets forgotten until winter hits. The magic of your car's heater lies in the heater core. It's like a mini radiator that uses hot coolant from the engine to warm up the cabin.
Heating System Red Flags:
- Little or no air is coming from the vents.
- You're chilly, and the air isn't warming up.
- Air is only somewhat warm.
- Heater controls don't seem to be listening to you.
- Odd smells or noises when the heater is on
Heating System Repairs:
Heating issues frequently fall into the following categories:
- Low coolant: The heater shares a coolant supply with the engine radiator, so any coolant system leak can void the heater core of coolant
- Bad heater core: The heater core can have leaks, holes, or blocked coolant hoses
- Bad blower motor: This problem could keep heated air from reaching the cabin
- Bad HVAC controls and valves: These small parts can break or get stuck
- Broken or stuck thermostat: Even a functioning heater with plenty of coolant must have a thermostat to regulate the temperature
Both heating and cooling systems have a host of components that might need a little love and care from time to time. Our Honest1 technicians will perform a thorough inspection to find out what's going on and present you with a digital inspection report detailing our findings and suggested repairs.
