As summer approaches, it’s essential to ensure that your car’s air conditioning system is running at peak performance. Regular air conditioning service and testing can help prevent expensive repairs and ensure that your air con system lasts longer. At BonAir, we offer comprehensive air conditioning service, including testing your car’s air con system. Here’s a closer look at how we test your car’s air conditioning system.
Our experienced technicians will begin by conducting a visual inspection of your car’s air con system. We will inspect the system for any visible damage, such as cracks, leaks, or damaged hoses. We’ll also check the drive belt, compressor, and other components to ensure they are in good working condition.
Check Refrigerant Levels
Next, we’ll check the refrigerant levels in your car’s air conditioning system. Low refrigerant levels can cause the air conditioning system to blow warm air. We’ll use a refrigerant analyzer to check the levels and determine if there is a leak.
Check Compressor Function
We’ll also check the function of the compressor. The compressor is responsible for compressing the refrigerant, which cools the air coming out of the vents. Our technicians will check the compressor’s function to ensure it’s working correctly.
To ensure your car’s air conditioning system is working correctly, we’ll check the temperature of the air coming out of the vents. We’ll use a thermometer to check the temperature and make sure it’s within the proper range.
Check for Leaks
If we detect low refrigerant levels during the refrigerant level check, we’ll need to determine if there’s a leak in the system. Our technicians will use a special dye that’s added to the refrigerant to help identify any leaks. Once the dye is added, we’ll use an ultraviolet light to look for any areas where the dye is visible.
Test Electrical Connections
The electrical connections in your car’s air conditioning system are also critical to its proper functioning. Our technicians will test the electrical connections to ensure they’re secure and working correctly. If we detect any issues, we’ll make the necessary repairs or replacements.
Clean and Sanitize the System
Over time, your car’s air conditioning system can accumulate dirt, dust, and other debris. This can affect the system’s performance and even cause unpleasant odors. To address this, we’ll clean and sanitize the system using a special solution. This will help ensure that the air coming out of the vents is clean and fresh.
Recharge the System
If we detect low refrigerant levels during the testing process, we’ll need to recharge the system. We’ll add refrigerant to the system to bring it up to the proper levels. This will help ensure that your car’s air conditioning system is functioning optimally.
