There are many reasons why a car air conditioning isn’t working correctly.
They can range from a leak to needing a new part.
A car being low on Freon, also known as refrigerant, is an indicator that there’s a leak.
Leaks can occur on rubber lines or fittings, because they undergo extreme temperature changes.
The rubber gaskets, which expand and contract, can become brittle overtime.
You should only need to recharge your car A/C if there’s a leak.
HomeTowne Auto Repair is able to recharge a car air conditioning, and we do offer air conditioning repair.
One part that may need to be replaced is the air conditioning condenser.
We installed a new one on a 2005 Acura after a customer noticed the air conditioning wasn’t as cool.

When you turn on the air conditioning, Freon travels — as a gas — from the air conditioning compressor to the air conditioning condenser.
The air conditioning fan blows air over the condenser, cooling the Freon and causing it to turn into a liquid.
