Common Problems with Auto Heating & Cooling Systems

Nowadays, most drivers often take their heat and air conditioning systems for granted (until something goes wrong). Both of them require regular maintenance, just like the rest of your car's major internal systems. Doing so can ensure you have a comfortable driving experience and prevent major problems from arising down the line. The auto heating & cooling systems have so many parts that it can be very tough to know which one of them may be causing your heat or A/C not to work.

If your car's heater or air conditioning isn't working, it's always best to take it to a trusted auto repair shop. At A & C Automotive & Machine, our skillful technicians can quickly identify the root of the problem and make suitable recommendations to correct the problem. Heating and cooling problems come in various ways, which is why you should have your HVAC parts inspected seasonally. 

Popular Heating System Issues

The heating system in your vehicle comprises the heater core, blower motor, fan, hoses, control valve, cabin filter, and more. The heating system draws the heat away from your engine and into the cabin to keep you warm on cold days. If there's something wrong with your heater, it is most likely one of the following issues:

  • Low coolant or leak
  • Damaged heater core
  • Faulty thermostat

Popular A/C System Issues

On the other hand, the air conditioning system keeps your cabin cool when it is hot and humid outside. This system comprises refrigerant, compressor, condenser, receiver drier, evaporator, and more. If your A/C isn't working, it is probably due to one of the following causes:

  • Low refrigerant levels
  • Clogged condenser
  • Unresponsive button controls
  • Damaged compressor
  • Torn belt
  • A buildup of moisture and debris

To be sure of the problem, please take your vehicle to a certified mechanic to properly inspect your heater and air conditioning systems. A well-kept heating and cooling system will enable you to drive comfortably and safely year-round.
