If your vehicle’s air conditioning system isn’t working properly, it may be that the condenser is clogged with leaves, bugs, or road debris that compromises its ability to remove heat from the refrigerant. The result of a dirty condenser is lower cooling capacity, higher pressures inside the air conditioner, and greater wear on the compressor. To avert such problems, look for the condenser in its position mounted in front of the radiator and clean it with compressed air or pressurized water. If problems persist, they are likely caused by something that can only be diagnosed and corrected by a trained automobile technician. It is better to have the problem diagnosed before hot weather makes the driving experience uncomfortable. Though the air conditioner is not essential to your car’s overall performance and safety, a good air conditioner can make your car ride more pleasant.
