Almost every modern passenger car is fitted with an air conditioning system nowadays. If you prefer to drive with the windows rolled up, you can just turn on the air conditioner to maintain the temperature within the closed cabin. Due to the insulation inside the cabin, the air conditioner ensures that the passengers in the car won’t feel too hot. In fact, many vehicles also have dual zone climate control systems that offer maximum comfort for people sitting in the back and the front. However, much like with any other component in a car, the air conditioner also requires proper maintenance. Here are just some of the many common issues that you may encounter with your air conditioner.

Gas Leakage

The refrigerant gas in your air conditioner may leak after a while. You can take your car to any local workshop that offers services for car air conditioning in Bexhill-on-Sea to get the refrigerant gas refilled. However, before refilling the gas, the technician will first inspect the unit to determine the point of leakage and seal it up. Usually, the refrigerant gas leaks through a small tear within the pipes. A section of the pipe will be replaced or welded.

Cooling Coil Damage

The cooling coils may get damaged after a while due to excessive wear and tear. After a few years, you may have to get the cooling coils replaced altogether. Depending upon the model of your car and the type of air conditioning unit installed within, the cost of a replacement cooling coil may vary.


The condenser within the AC unit can cause a lot of issues as well. If you are constantly hearing a clattering noise in the condenser of your vehicle, it might be due to a loose or broken bearing. You should take it in for repairs immediately to get the issue inspected and fixed, which will prevent further damage to the neighbouring components.
