There aren't many things more refreshing than stepping into a cool, air-conditioned vehicle in the heat of the summer months, but unfortunately, air conditioning units don't last forever and over time, will wear down and require maintenance. Whether the problem is attributed to a lack of freon, your A/C fittings becoming loose, or your O-rings, hoses, or seals wearing out, that rejuvenating blast of fresh air won't last forever. 

Luckily for you, our Ford technicians here at Lucas Ford in Burlington, NJ can get your air conditioning running like new again! By closely examining and running diagnostic tests on your vehicle, our service professionals will be able to see if there is a leak present somewhere within your beloved Ford. If there is an issue, our team will stop it directly in its tracks -- before it can affect anything else on your vehicle. 

So, with this being said, you might be wondering; what are some symptoms of a faulty air conditioning? 

What are the Signs of a Broken A/C System?

No matter what the outside air temperature may be, a properly functioning air conditioning system should be capable of cooling the air in your car by a minimum of 40 degrees. If your A/C is struggling to decrease your vehicle's temperature, you hear any noise coming from under the hood when turning the A/C on or off, or you notice a lack of cold air coming from the vents, it's more than likely that your air conditioner is malfunctioning.

When air conditioning systems break down, the refrigerant begins to leak, and because of this, you and your passengers may not be the ones affected by your faulty A/C. Not only is this refrigerant harmful to the environment, but it can also prove to do some serious damage to your vehicle. Residual refrigerant can severely damage your vehicle's evaporator and compressor and can lead to a significant issue if not treated at the first sign of trouble.
