Most Common Signs of A Faulty Air Conditioner
If you think there is a weird sound besides the flow of air coming out of your AC you can check by turning off the air conditioning. Make sure the sound does not persist while the air conditioner is off or it may be another component making the sound. If you turn it on again and the sound resumes, it may be the car’s compressor working hard for so long and getting worn out, which may need a full repair.
If you smell something strange when using your car’s air conditioning, it suggests that the air filter is old and dirty. If the air coming into the filter is cleaner than the filter, then it is probably time to get it changed. Dirty air can not only make your whole car smell bad, but it can also be bad for your health if it’s circulating potentially mold particles into your breathing air. Because some of us spend much of our time in our car, It is definitely worth it to get the AC checked if the air quality in your car has decreased.
The air conditioning process essentially removes moisture and humidity from the air to make it cool and fresh. However, that moisture needs to go somewhere. Usually, you will see cars that have been running for a while, dripping water from the engine. As long as it is just droplets, this is normal. If your car has condensation buildup inside the cabin, however, it may mean that the drainage is blocked and needs to be cleared.
