With the hot summer days fast approaching, most people start to think about outside activities and long afternoons spent at the beach. Here at GIC Car Clinic in San Jose, our thoughts begin to focus on your car’s air conditioning system. Without a properly functioning air conditioning system in your car, the daily drive could become unbearable. Temperatures inside your car on a hot day can reach upwards of 130 degrees! Not a comfortable place to be without air conditioning.

The concept behind any air conditioning system is that it removes heat from the air inside your car and transfers it to the air outside your car. Without that heat and the accompanying humidity, what you have left is much cooler, comfortable air. It sounds simple enough but there are many components that have to work together and be at their best performance to do this job. These components include a compressor, condenser, evaporator, valves, hoses and pressurized refrigerant. All of these components are electronically controlled and that system has to be functioning properly also.

One major problem that your car’s air conditioning system faces is a leak. The system must be fully pressurized for it to work properly and if there are any leaks present the system will not only fail to provide adequate cooling, but it will also discharge its refrigerant leaving you with a hot interior and an uncomfortable ride. Modern A/C systems are more resistant to leaks than ever before, but they are not immune to them. Leaks can, and will, happen and should be taken care of as soon as possible.
