Your car air conditioning is made up of different components that all work together to run your air efficiently and effectively. If your AC is not running effectively you run the risk of further mechanical issues, and can even lose fuel efficiency– which in turn drains your pocketbook. The components that work together to to make up your auto ac unit are your air conditioning compressor, condenser, evaporator, thermal expansion valve, and drier/accumulator. Chances are if you are experiencing any air conditioning problems one of these components may be broken or not working properly. If this is the case, let our auto experts diagnose the problem for you!

Why Is My Car’s Air Conditioning Blowing Hot Air?
A few reasons why your cars a/c is blowing hot air
- Low Refrigerant- often the most common reason your AC is not blowing cool air. While your car is running check refrigerant levels. If low top off with refrigerant and your problem may be fixed
- Condenser Problems– This is probably the most important component of your ac system. If there is any type of blockage from debris etc or if the condenser is broken it will not blow cold air and many times no air at all for that matter.
- Component Restrictions/Blockage– ALL of your cars air conditioning components work together to create that nice cool air coming out of your vents. If there’s any blockage in any part of the system it often affects other components as well. Not fixing one component can lead to damage and repairs of the other components.
- Clutch Cycling Switch Failure– the clutch is responsible for clicking on the compressor which cycles the refrigerant and pressurizes. If the clutch is not working the refrigerant cannot move or pressurize. Thus no cold air or perhaps no air at all!
Those living in Phoenix and close surrounding areas, know that a Arizona summer without having AC is like traveling in a really hot Sauna…not so comfortable or safe! We can all barely survive the scorching heat as it is, but to go at it with no way of cooling down the inside of our car is not only DANGEROUS but in all aspects not an option!
We know that when we get in our vehicle we turn the knob or push a button and our AC/Heating system will turn on, but what most automobile owners don’t realize is that just like our engine, brakes and other components of our car/truck our AC & Heating systems need love, attention, and maintenance too!
Regular Heating and Air Maintenance
To prevent AC issues and possible costly repairs JNJ Auto Service experts suggest regular AC maintenance & check ups. AC refrigerant gases deplete over a one year span from normal wear and tear. It is suggested that you regularly check refrigerant levels as well as schedule a recharge/re-gas for your Air conditioning system every 2 years. Scheduling an appointment with an auto repair specialist like us will help aid in avoiding the breakdown of ac components and can save you money, headaches and gas!
Car Heater Problems?
While we don’t often need our vehicle heating systems as often as our vehicles AC it is still suggested that you keep your heater working efficiently and effectively. Most times when your heating system is not blowing hot air or any air at all there is an issue with the blower motor, switch, or your heating core is obstructed or plugged. It can often be difficult for an automobile owner with no auto repair skills to diagnose a heating problem. Why? The heater box is often only accessible after removing part of your dashboard. Our auto repair experts recommend bringing your car into JNJ Auto Service to allow our experienced Phoenix auto air & heating specialists diagnose the problem for you. We promise to save you time, money and the headache of dealing with ANY auto repair needs or issues that your vehicle may have. Call us today 623-930-7936
