SERVICING AND REFILLS
Hastings panels are qualified specialists in vehicle air conditioning service and repairs. If your air conditioning isn’t working at its best, we will inspect the system and provide a free, obligation assessment.
One of the most obvious symptoms of low Freon levels is if your air conditioner is blowing warm or room temperature air. The most common reason for this is a drop in the volume of pressurized refrigerant in the system. When the amount drops too low, it eventually affects performance.
When you turn on your vehicle’s air conditioner, if you listen closely, you will hear a ‘click’ which signifies the clutch engaging. If the refrigerant levels are too low, the clutch will fail to engage which means there’s not enough refrigerant for the compressor to pressurize. In other words, your air conditioning system has nothing to work with!
Another more serious symptom of low refrigerent levels is visible leaking. If you notice leaking of a ‘thin’ greasy substance under the hood, around the compressor, inside the cabin, or leaking under your vehicle, you should bring it in the Hastings Panels for a certified diagnosis and assessment.
