For weeks now, it has begun to tighten the heat and we recommend that you charge the air conditioning, but if you do not check its condition on time it is possible that when you need it, it is not prepared to work at full capacity.

There are several symptoms that warn of breakdowns in the air conditioning and it is important to know how to identify them in order to apply the appropriate solution:

– If you notice an unpleasant smell when turning on the air conditioner, it is a sign that the circuit is infected with fungi, bacteria and dust.

– If you notice that it takes too long to cool the passenger compartment, it may be because the fluid level is insufficient or because the passenger compartment filter or some other system is blocked. In this case, it is best to go through the workshop to determine and solve the problem.

– If fog is formed in the crystals it is because it does not cool enough. The solution is usually to charge the circuit with gas.

– If there is little air flow, it is very likely that the cabin filter is clogged. Touch then change it. Although there are no problems, it is advisable to replace it with a new one every year or 15,000 kilometers.

Why do I have to charge the air conditioner

The system is based on a cooling of the air by means of a heat exchange system inside the vehicle. It is very important to charge the air conditioner since it is a closed circuit in which a gas is found that is cooled by a series of mechanical processes that change its state (gas to liquid and vice versa).

In the area where the gas cools, we circulate the ventilation air of the car, with which a thermal exchange is achieved that cools the latter. That cooled air is the one that exits through the ventilation ducts of the vehicle.

When to charge the air conditioner

Experts remember that, every year, a car loses between 15 and 20% of the gas that runs through the air conditioning circuit. This assumes that, unless the vehicle has sent other alerts (low flow or little cold), it is advisable to check the status of the system once a year and charge the air conditioning once a year.
