Your cooling system is making unusual noises
As you already know, when you’re running your air conditioning, it’s generally quiet. If you notice unusual noises, chances are, your cooling system needs a little TLC. Relying heavily on the compressor, if the component is worn, your ac will make a grinding sound while operating.
Your system is blowing warm air
While there’s no clear maintenance schedule for a cooling system, a sure sign that you need a visit to your Wellesley mechanic is when it no longer blows cold air. One of the most common reasons for this occurrence is a refrigerant leak and a need for a recharge. However, contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to recharge your air condition system as often as you may think. Maintaining refrigerant levels only needs to be addressed about once every three years.
There’s an odor coming from the AC vents
There’s a distinct smell when turning on the air conditioner in your car. However, sometimes your nose is greeted by the unpleasant scent of must or gas. If this is the case, chances are your vehicle has mold or mildew on the interior of the vents. Often behind the dash on the evaporator, this bacteria not only stinks, but it’s also bad for your health. Furthermore, if you’re smelling gas, this may be a sign that your car has a gas leak.
