Car AC Diagnostic

Car AC Diagnostic

Summer is around the corner and in San Antonio getting stuck in the heat can be awful. To keep you comfortable during the summer months it is important to get your car’s AC system inspected and diagnosed at the first sign of a problem. Below is the process we use to diagnose your car’s AC. Step 1: AC Performance Test The first step to inspecting any car’s AC is a performance test. When conducting a performance test we first test your AC at an idle and while driving. We measure the temperature and volume of the air that is blowing out of your car’s ac vents. We are testing to see if your AC reaches the maximum cooling capacity, which is for most cars is 42 degrees Fahrenheit, and how strong the airflow is. We also check to see if the AC compressor kicks on. Step 2: AC Leak Test If we determine that your AC is not working at the optimum performance the next step is to check for leaks in the AC system.
