Living in sunny Southern California, most of us use our air conditioners regularly, at least in the hotter months. When your air conditioning needs service the technician checks to see if the A/C unit is working properly, including using an infra-red thermometer which measures how cold the air output is. If the system is found to be low on refrigerant or “Freon,” a leak test is performed to find the source of the leak. Freon may be added if necessary to top off the system. The technician may also check for evidence of refrigerant cross contamination, which is the mixing of refrigerant. An A/C service should also include the inspection of the compressors drive belt and related hardware.
Does your A/C blow smelly air? If you are bothered by stinky/moldy-smelling air, you’re A/C probably has mold growing in it, which isn’t healthy for you to be breathing. Rony’s Car Pros offers a treatment for the A/C to kill off the mold. Please ask us for details.
