RECHARGING AUTOMOBILE AIR CONDITIONER AND REFRIGERANT - CHICAGO, ILLINOIS

Recharging Air Conditioner

Your car air con doesn't seem to feel that cold anymore and you suddenly realize you can't stand it anymore. It's time for recharging the air conditioner in your car.

Did you know that it isn't too complicated? It's a fairly easy process you can do on your own, but it's always better to leave it to a trained professional. Keep in mind that an air conditioner recharge service will not be the best long-term solution.

It is only a temporary fix to a potentially bigger underlying problem with your car's air conditioning system.

Your car air conditioner system needs to be air tight to prevent leakage. In most cases, it's only a hose that's leaking, so along with the recharging process you need to replace it.

If you still want to try out recharging the air conditioner all by yourself, you can try out one of the A/C recharge kits available on the market. These are perfectly safe and you just need to follow a few simple steps.

List of Materials

Don't forget, safety always comes first! Always wear safety gloves and glasses. If you get refrigerant on your skin it will be a very painful experience as it freezes very quickly. In order to recharge your air conditioner you will need:

  • Safety gloves and glasses
  • AC dispenser equipped with a low side pressure gauge and a trigger
  • 12-28 ounces of refrigerant, depending on the make and model of your car
  • Meat thermometer

Step 1 - Ignition

First off, you simply need to start the engine of your car and then turn the air conditioner up to the highest setting.

Step 2 - Compressor Check-Up

Open the hood of your car and check if the compressor engages. It is driven by an accessory belt via a cluth on one end. If the pulleys are moving, it's fine.

If it's engaging, you have a refrigerant leakage on your hands, but if that's not the case it might be compressor failure, an electrical problem, or simply the refrigerant level in the system is too low.

Step 3 - Low Side Pressure Port

Turn off the engine and locate a gray or black cap with the letter "L". That's the low side pressure port of your car.

Step 4 - Attaching the Hose

Attach the hose included in your car A/C recharge kit to the low side pressure port.

Step 5 - Pressure Test

Once you turn on your car engine again with the A/C set to the highest setting, watch for the compreessor as it engages the clutch. After this, you need to monitor the low side pressure on the gauge supplied with the kit.

Step 6 - Recharging the System

After you've threaded the refrigerant can onto the hose, you need to hold it upright and squeeze the trigger until you get as close to 40 psi as possible on the gauge.

Step 7 - Cool Off

Once you're done with the previous steps, simply get in the car and enjoy the cool breeze coming out of your air con once again.

Recharging air conditioner isn't exactly a complicated process but should be left to trained professionals. Contact or stop by United Tires today and leave all doubts at home.
