Is the Air Conditioning in your car or truck:
- » Blowing air that’s not as cold as it should be?
- » Not running as quietly as it should be?
- » Belching moldy fumes?
- » Leaking refrigerant?
(which can damage your vehicle’s evaporator and compressor
and is toxic to the environment)

Air conditioning basics
Comfortable is a relative term when it comes to the inside temperature of your vehicle. Whether you prefer a chilly 18 degrees or like the temperature at a steady 25, your vehicle’s heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system needs maintenance. HVAC systems are engineered to keep the cab, or cab and bunk, in a truck (or cabin in a passenger vehicle) at your preferred “comfortable” temperature.
Air Conditioning systems also help clean the air in the cabin by removing dust, pollen, smoke, and moisture.
How heat behaves
Thermodynamics is a branch of physics that anyone who works on Air Conditioning systems should understand. Air Conditioning systems use basic principles of thermodynamics to remove heat from the cabin of a vehicle and disperse it or lose it to the atmosphere outside the vehicle. Air Conditioning lowers the temperature inside the cabin by removing heat faster than it comes in. Sources of heat include the sun, the ventilation system, the engine, and the road pavement.
A faulty HVAC system that “kind of works” is not only uncomfortable but also more energy consuming than one that’s broken.
