The Heart of Your A/C

Signs to Watch for a Bad Compressor

Have you noticed lately your air conditioning just isn’t working properly? If you’re having trouble staying cool in your vehicle, you may have a bad A/C compressor. In this blog, we’ll explain what an A/C compressor is and how to tell when it needs replacing.

What is an A/C Compressor?

The A/C compressor is the heart of your air conditioning system. It pumps refrigerant throughout the entire system, which helps maintain a steady temperature even during the hot summer months. When your compressor starts to fail, it can cause performance issues that make it difficult for your car to keep its cool.

Signs to Watch

If you think your car’s A/C compressor has gone kaput, here are some signs to look out for:

  • Your air conditioning doesn't blow cold air—or just won’t work at all
  • You hear a noise coming from under the hood when you turn on the AC
  • There is a strange burning smell coming from under the hood when turned on
  • The temperature displayed on your dashboard gets higher than normal while running the AC
