California drivers know how important it is to have a functional air conditioning system, especially in the summer. Turning on the A/C is probably one of the first things you do when you step inside your vehicle, and you rely on it to keep you comfortable as you drive.

The purpose of the A/C system is to remove moisture from the air in your vehicle and provide cool air in return. To sum it up, this is accomplished by a variety of parts that manipulate the system’s refrigerant between a gaseous and liquid state. There’s the compressor that pumps this refrigerant through the system, the condenser that turns the refrigerant from a gas to a liquid, and the evaporator which creates the cooling effect by turning the refrigerant back into a gas.
If any of the parts of the A/C system fail, your A/C won’t be able to do its job. A common problem that technicians see when a vehicle comes in for A/C inspections and repairs is a leak in the system. If there is a leak, the refrigerant will run out. Leaks create other problems as well, such as allowing contaminants to enter the system and damage its parts. It could also cause damage to the compressor, which can be expensive to repair or replace. The compressor needs the proper amount of refrigerant to avoid overheating.
Inspections can be performed even if there isn’t any obvious problem with the air conditioning system. They are a great way to stay informed about the condition of your vehicle, so you can avoid potential problems due to hidden damage or wear and tear. Technicians will also begin with an inspection if there’s an unknown problem with your vehicle’s air conditioning. To begin, they’ll inspect the system visually to see if there are any obvious problems. To look for a leak, they’ll often perform a vacuum test which will uncover leaks that can’t be seen with the naked eye. These are just a couple of the ways that a technician will uncover any problems with a vehicle’s A/C.
