The air conditioning system, commonly referred to as the ‘AC system,’ is an integral component found in every type of car. It plays a crucial role in the comfort of passengers within the vehicle.
Primarily, the AC system regulates temperature, humidity, airspeed, and air cleanliness, ensuring a comfortable interior environment for passengers. The AC system consists of various essential components, including:
- Expansion valve
The operation of the air conditioning system involves a refrigerant, which exists in a gaseous state within the system. This refrigerant serves as the medium for exchanging heat within the AC system, allowing it to regulate the interior temperature of the passenger cabin according to passenger preferences. As a car is used over an extended period, whether it’s for 5 or 10 years, the AC system may gradually deteriorate or experience wear and tear due to its usage lifespan. Therefore, it becomes necessary to perform proper maintenance and repairs.
