Auto Air Conditioning-101 Made Easy-An Insight into your cars Air Con System

Auto Air Conditioning

Auto Air Conditioning

Of course, the air conditioners found in the car works similarly to the air conditioners used at present in the offices and houses. In simple words, the air conditioning system of a car is the smaller unit of window air conditioning systems found in many homes.

Although they come out with the same end result. So, the mechanism of a car air conditioning system is quite different from the conventional domestic air conditioning units. The car system in my opinion is a little more complicated.  The car system takes the warm air from out of the vehicles cab and recycles the air. Hence, through the cars air-con system. Returning the air to the cab as cold air.

Auto Air Conditioning-Not for DIY motorists

The system is really a heat exchange unit fitted under the cars bonnet. Therefore the air-con system can be very complicated to repair by the DIY motorist. So if you got certain problems in the car air conditioning system then you need to visit your local car service centre. Such as Pellon Tyre and Auto Centre in Halifax UK.

In order to understand, how the car air conditioning system operates. Then, it is required for you to know some of the various parts of the air-con unit. Although systems slightly differ? so In this system, there are two types of valves. There are expansion and dryer valves, which are required for the correct functioning of the air-con system. The function of expansion valves is to regulate the internal temperature of air, and it controls the refrigerant flow inside the system.

This also reminds me that air-con systems are serviced by specialized equipment. Subsequently, our operators have to attend a course and be certified for using this specialist machines that we use.

Auto Air Conditioning-Leaking gas is the main problem

In general though, if your air-con system is giving you certain problems. So, call a local garage. Off course most of the problems that we encounter ares not a simple job to rectify. I recommend that drivers should have an annual air-con service. Possibly, at the same time as as your cars full service. Leakages take out all the gas present inside the air conditioner unit. This is probably the commonest problem that we encounter. Of course with the passage of time, the system becomes useless.

This attached video gives an excellent description of how the Auto Air Conditioning system works in most models of car.

This video represent a “Typical Auto Air Conditioning System – How It Works” as well shows the potential problem of over-charging systems with TXV Valves. Our solution at AC AVALANCHE is to use SMART CLIP Technology for the correct fill!

Many of us older drivers, will remember the days when air-conditioning, was only available on the top car brands. For this reason, i decided to put a few videos onto my blog. Naturally, most modern cars nowadays are now fitted with AC (air-conditioning). Most modern Autocentres, like Pellon Autocentre, here in Halifax. Accordingly, can now carry out repairs and re-charge many car models AC systems.

Therefore, Air Conditioning in cars came about in the 1940’s. The first ones were fairly basic. Hence moving forward to today’s vehicles, there is modern  technologies. As expected, such things as computerized automatic temperature control. Which allow you to set temperature that you want, automatically. For this reason, this has added a great deal of complexity to today’s modern vehicles air conditioning systems.

Furthermore, we now have tough environmental laws, that regulate car AC systems. Regulated things include, such things as recharging the  AC system with refrigerant. Another rule that regulates the AC system is the  evacuating and charging of the PAG oil needed by the compressor. Scientific studies have proved that there has been a damaging effect of the AC refrigerant to the Earths ozone layer.

Today’s modern garage now to have technicians. As expected, have to be certified on the use of refrigerants. Thus, can also repair your air conditioner system. As expected, we  purchased a special machine for  working and servicing on the cars with AC problems.So, as a motorist, basic knowledge of your air conditioning system is important knowledge to know. because it will give the driver more knowledge about the work that a garage has to carry out when repairing your AC. .

Modern AC or HVAC systems are composed of the following, COMPRESSOR, CONDENSER, EVAPORATOR, ORIFICE TUBE, EXPANSION VALVE, RECEIVER DRIER, or ACCUMULATOR.
