Why is my air conditioning so weak now?

If your car's air-conditioning system only blows warm air on hot days, it’s likely low on refrigerant. It's likely low on refrigerant because of a leak somewhere in the system.

Your vehicle can typically go a couple of years without attention to the air-conditioning system. An annual fluid top off usually isn't needed. However, if the AC stops working in your automobile (and the fan continues to blow warm air), a leak in a hose, connector or other part of the system is probably the culprit.

The AC system is important during the winter as well. If the system is faulty, you may notice that the defroster isn’t clearing fogged up windows. Most defrosters engage the AC to dehumidify the air.

If there is a leak, the AC system on most modern vehicles will shut down with low refrigerant levels to prevent damage to the air-conditioning compressor. Bring your vehicle to Back Shop Auto in West Valley City, Utah and we'll find and repair any leaks and refill your system refrigerant, also known as R-134.

When is it time to add or replace the refrigerant?

You could be proactive and have it done before you experience problems, but you shouldn’t need that more often than every few years at the most. If your automobile’s air conditioning is losing its potency, even after topping it off, then you probably have a leak. But if you stay comfortably cool on the hottest days, your system has enough refrigerant.
