Automobile air conditioning is not just a major means of convenience that keeps drivers comfortable during the hot summer months and helps prevent fatigue, it also provides them with safety during winter months by dehumidifying the cabin, enabling misted windows to be cleared rapidly; therefore, it provides them with a clear view of the road.
Many vehicle owners take their air conditioning system for granted and do not give it a second thought unless it fails. However, like any other systems in your vehicle, an automotive air conditioner needs to be checked to ensure proper functioning.
One of the most common air conditioning issues is leakage. To determine the location of a system leak, we add a fluorescent dye to the AC system in addition to an adequate amount of refrigerant to operate the air conditioning system in a fully pressurized state. This circulates the dye throughout the system. Then, a technician uses a special UV light and glasses to inspect all the lines, connections, and components of the system to identify the exact location of the leak.
It is normal to lose some amount of refrigerant over time, just the way your tires lose air pressure. Since this refrigerant is essential to your car—it lubricates your entire AC system—the best thing you can do to prevent major repairs is to have your AC system checked annually.
