Car A/C - more than you wanted to know.

Car A/C facts®.

Your car's air conditioning (A/C) system is divided into two sides, known as the high side and the low side. The compressor, beginning at the high side, functions like a pump, moving refrigerant through the system. The expansion valve, which begins at the low side, restricts refrigerant flow, lowering the pressure and the temperature of the refrigerant.

Car Heating & A/C FAQs



Q: My car has been sitting out in the cold, and now the heat won't work. What could be the issue?

A: Because most cars house the A/C and heating elements under the dash, it’s difficult to diagnose the problem without seeing your vehicle. Stop by at your earliest convenience, and we’ll figure out the problem.



Q: Every time I turn on my car AC it makes a weird noise but works great! Where is the noise coming from?

A: It could be a minor engine noise or hose you’re hearing, but it could also be a symptom of problems with your compressor. This is the heart of the system, so have it checked if you hear anything unusual.



Q: My car’s air conditioner doesn't blow cold air any more. How can I fix that?

A: Your refrigerant may be low, either because you need a refill or because you have a leak in your AC system. Your local Midas technician can tell you for sure.



Q: The air coming thru the vents smells awful. What could be the causes of this?

A: Weird smells from your car’s vents are likely caused by a bacteria buildup in the evaporator. We have the proper tools to clean this out for you quickly.
