Q: Q: Air conditioning not cool

asked by on

My air conditioning is not very cool.

If your cars A/C is not very cold, and it is happening always, you might be low on refrigerant. The A/C system is a sealed system and if it is low, it usually means you have a leak. Seeking the help of a professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, is advised. Recharging the system will be necessary in some cases. For a correct diagnosis, use of specialized equipment such as electronic leak detectors or UV dyes are needed to detect any leaks in your cooling system.
