Few Tips On How To Care Of Your Car Air Conditioning System

Aug 17, 2007
We do enjoy the cool and comfort provided by our car air conditioner, but we hardly think about taking proper care of it. However, it should be realized that with a little care and maintenance we can actually improve the efficiency of our car air conditioner to a large degree.

The Drive Belt

The work of the drive belt is to make the compressor of the air conditioner turn. This in turn maintains the circulation of the refrigerant as it should be. Now if the belt is not at its best condition and is instead worn, with stretch marks and cracks appearing on it, it can just slip from the thread or break. The result would be that the compressor will get stuck and the air conditioner would stop cooling the surroundings. Make sure that you regularly check the condition of the drive belt, and if you find it with considerable wear and tear you would know that it is time for replacement of the drive belt.

The Condenser

The condenser has cooling fins inside it and the refrigerant runs through the condenser. The air flows across the cooling fins so that it can remove the heat from the circulating refrigerant.

If dirt and debris plugs up the cooling fins it will restrict the air flow and hence heat from the refrigerant cannot be removed. Your car also might get overheated due to any such restrictions. To take proper care of the fins, all you got to do is check them periodically to see if they are clean and in proper condition.

Signs of Problem

If you find the carpet of your car getting wet during the summer months, then the indication is that the air conditioner drain isn't functioning properly. Had it been in the best condition you would have seen water dripping to the pavement you park your car on.

If you feel any vibration or there is some kind of unusual noise whenever you put the fan on, the hint could be that there is debris in the blower fan.

If the amount of air coming out of the vents seems reduced, then it might be because the evaporator of the air conditioner is freezing. This problem crops up mostly when you have driven your car for a while.

The sensible heat of the air that is reduced is actually converted to latent heat as the water from the wet cooler pads is evaporated absorbing heat from the air. The drier the air that enters the device, the better are the results. the good thing about these devices is that they are relatively cheaper than the regular air conditioners and the maintenance is also hassle free.

There are plenty other such problems. This has only been an introduction.
