Car Air Conditioning FAQ’s

My Car’s Air Con Isn’t Cold - What’s Wrong?

If your car’s air conditioning is blowing warmer air over time, it could be that you just need a regas to get everything back to being icy cold.

If it doesn’t get cold at all, the problem is usually caused by a broken compressor. Our team is fully equipped to replace air conditioning compressors to get your aircon back up and running. If it’s not the compressor, it could also be:

  • Blocked cooling vents
  • A damaged component
  • A leak in the system
  • Bad refrigerant
  • A multitude of other issues

Thankfully, our team at Australian Mechanical in Enoggera are able to diagnose the problem and solve it quickly, at a competitive price. Get back to enjoying your car, even during the hottest Brisbane summer!

How Can You Tell if A Car Air Con Needs Regassing?

If your car’s air conditioning has slowly started to blow out warmer air over time, then it’s likely time for you to bring in your car for a regas to get everything back to being icy cold.

At Australian Mechanical, our expert team will regas your car’s AC system and identify any issues found in your conditioning system. It’s important to book AC servicing on a regular basis. Waiting until there is a problem can cause expensive repairs, while preventative maintenance ensures everything’s operating as it should.

How Do I Prevent My Car Air Conditioning From Breaking?

Natural wear and tear is inevitable, so over time your car’s air conditioning will very likely need repairs every now and again. But, you can minimise this and ensure you catch any problems before they become real issue by:

  • Using the aircon at least once a week, even in winter.
  • Keeping the windows up when the air conditioning is on. This stops the system from being overstressed.
  • Ensuring you have your car and aircon regularly serviced.
  • Bringing your car in for an aircon service at the first sign of problems.

How Long Should It Take for the Air to Get Cold in My Car When I Turn on the A/C?

After turning on your air conditioner, cold air should be blowing within 30 seconds up to a few minutes. However, this can vary depending on your car’s make, model, and age. Weather is also a factor. For example a hot Brisbane day may require the system to flush out some hot air before you get any cool air.

Why Does My Car's Air Conditioning Smell Bad?

One of the most common causes of a bad smell from your air conditioning is dirty air filters. Your AC system uses filters to scrub the air of water, dirt, bacteria and other pollutants before entering into your air conditioning system. Over time, these filters begin to fill up with pollutants and need to be replaced. If the filter is not replaced at the appropriate service interval, it may lead to an unpleasant smell from your air conditioner every time you use it.

Other common causes include:

  • A bacteria build up in the vents and aircon system
  • A fluid leak inside your car
  • Mildew in the system or your cars interior

Does My Car Air Conditioner Unit Need A Regas Or A Service?

If your air conditioning has slowly stopped being as cold as it should be and everything else is in good working order, then it’s likely that your aircon just needs a regas. If there are any other issues such as bad smells, clicking noises, squeaking or leaking, then your air conditioning system will need a service and perhaps a repair. Our team can diagnose and repair any problems with your air conditioning services.

Why Does My Air Conditioner Drip Water?

Car air conditioners can drip water for a variety of reasons including:

  • A blocked drain
  • An improperly attached drain
  • A damaged component
  • Needs a regas
  • A number of other issues

The good news is that our workshop is fully prepared to inspect, diagnose and repair any aircon issues you might be having! To learn more about dripping air conditioners, read our blog Why Does My Air Conditioner Drip Water?
