4 Common Reasons You Are Having A/C Problems

The A/C is something we really need on hot summer days or cold winter nights. While it's not essential to the car's ability to operate, it really helps with driving and riding comfortably. That's why having A/C problems is very frustrating. But don't worry; we are here to give you a few common reasons why it's failing, so you can keep an eye on them. Here are four of the most common reasons you are having A/C problems:

1. Cabin Air Filter Needs a Replacement

One thing most people don't think about is the cabin air filter. All of the air, hot or cold, goes through it, so it's filtered and clean. This makes it prone to clogging and buildup, so make sure you put it on your maintenance list from time to time. If forgotten, it can lead to problems with the A/C, and it can get confused for other problems. 

2. Fluid Leaks In The System

The A/C in your car is connected to the cooling system, so there are a lot of pipes and connections. If they leak, not only will the A/C stop working, but the engine will overheat. Leaking can be spotted in the front of the car, and it is either blue or clear. A little leak can cause a lot of trouble, so make sure to have it checked ASAP.

3. Cooling System Problems

By cooling system, we mean all of the pipes, fans, sensors, and other important parts. If any of them malfunction, the result can be a failing cooling system; therefore, A/C problems. We advise you to visit a repair shop if you start to notice any cooling issues; the sooner you do it, you will save a lot of money and headaches.

4. Electrical Malfunction

With the A/C being controlled with knobs and buttons, it's prone to electrical malfunctions. Shorts, relay issues, and even the buttons themselves can stop working, causing the A/C to stop. The worst part is that even if the system itself doesn't have problems, it is stopped by the electrical malfunction and cannot be turned on.
