Sometimes it’s obvious that your car needs air conditioning service, however, other times AC repair isn’t so clear. There are many reasons a car’s air conditioning stops functioning properly. There are also things you may notice different about the air in your car that don’t signal an AC issue. Here are some signs that you need AC repair other than the obvious that the air is no longer cool.
Smells in the Blown Air
Often when there is an issue with our AC system the blown air in your car smells. Sometimes that’s an indication of an air conditioning issue while other times it could signal another problem. As the temperatures outside continue to rise for the rest of the summer, chances are good that any odd smell you’re noticing now will only get worse.
Does your air conditioner make a strange noise the higher you turn the fan up? There’s likely an issue that requires service. You may need an AC repair, but more than likely there is an issue with the fan which may impact not only your air condition, but also the heat and defrost.
Unexplained Water in Your Car
If you find water on your car’s floor, especially in the front seat, and you can’t explain why, you may have an issue with the drain system in your air conditioner. This can lead to more problems so don’t delay, take your car in for AC repair if you notice wet floor mats or have unexplained water in the vehicle.
