Refrigerant leaks can occur at any point and can sometimes be difficult to figure out exactly where the leak is coming from. While it’s most commonly coming from the unit hose connections, there are other possibilities. In some cases, it’s possible to see an oily substance around the connections, which is most often the source of the refrigerant leak. A professional technician will be able to identify where the leak is coming from and apply a sealant that is specifically designed for air conditioning systems to close the leak.
The condenser of your vehicle’s AC system serves a critical purpose. By using the airflow that comes through the front of your car while you are driving, the condenser re-cools the hot refrigerant once it has been compressed. However, if the condenser becomes blocked by some type of debris or particles, then it will be unable to cool your refrigerant, which can, in turn, cause your car’s system to operate with refrigerant that is overheated. This is often what causes AC systems to expel hot air. In most vehicles, the condenser is an easy repair and any debris can be easily removed to resolve any of these issues.
As mentioned above, anything blocking the condenser can drastically affect the type of air your AC system provides you with. In the case that there is nothing blocking the condenser, it’s possible that it could be broken. A broken condenser can be caused by anything from a puncture caused by road debris or equipment failure. If no punctures are noticed during inspection, typically, the only way to resolve the issue is by replacing the condenser altogether.
