An auto air conditioning service, often referred to as auto A/C, is the process of removing the heat and dampness from the interior of the automobile in order to improve the comfort of the passengers. The air conditioning system is made up of several components which are: refrigerant, compressor, condenser, accumulator, A/C inline filter kit, orifice tube, and evaporator.

Six Main Components of Auto Air Conditioning Systems
Refrigerant: Also known as Freon, the refrigerant is able to change its physical properties when it is compressed, cooled and metered.
Compressor: This compresses the refrigerant gas PR Freon, the compression makes the gas very hot, after which it is sent through a condenser. This makes the cooling system work.
Condenser: This consists of a series of coils. Air from outside passes over in order to remove the heat from the already compressed gas. As a result, the gas to cools and condenses into a cool liquid.
Orifice Tube: It has a conical shaped fixed orifice that helps to restrict the flow of the refrigerant. This restriction lets the refrigerant change high-pressure liquid refrigerant to low-pressure liquid refrigerant mist. Next it moves into the evaporator. The failure of this tube results in restricted flow – this is as a result of clogging.
Evaporator: The low-pressure liquid refrigerant mist from the orifice tube moves through the evaporator. Then a blower motor pushes air through the cold tubes of this component into the passenger area of the vehicle.
Accumulator: This is a canister used to hold the refrigerant. While the refrigerant is inside this canister, the accumulator desiccant bag makes sure to remove any moisture that is present.
Cooling the interior of the car ensures that you are comfortable while you drive especially on hot summer days (although, it reduces the miles per gallon of your vehicle’s fuel). However, as nothing lasts forever, the air conditioning system of your vehicle will start experiencing issues. When your vehicle starts making noises and blowing hot instead of cool air, you know it’s time for a trip to Aloha Auto Repair.
