Your Alfa Romeo’s manual provides details on air conditioning maintenance and the suggested intervals on when checks should be made.

Air Conditioning Warning Signs to Look Out For

Unexpected mechanical breakdowns can occur outside these recommended service intervals due to leaks and worn out parts. Fortunately there are warning signs to take note of that indicate your car’s air conditioning system is in need of repair and needs the attention of an expert mechanic.

  • The air conditioner throws out warm air instead of cold. A problem could also exist if the air flow is not as pleasingly cold as you experienced it before. Keep in mind, though, that hotter or drier weather could also be the cause of decreased A/C performance.
  • You notice a strange mildew-like smell emitting out of the air conditioning vents.
  • You hear unusual sounds such as inexplicable banging and rattling indicating possible debris blockage or worn out parts.
  • You find stains or water has accumulated in the interior of your vehicle – on the floorboard directly under the dash.

How to Have your Air Conditioning Repaired

An air-conditioning system in good working order is essential to promote comfortable driving conditions. Whether you need to conduct a service or repair your car’s air conditioner, this is a job best left to an auto expert. Professional car mechanics are knowledgeable in dealing with complex car components such as the air conditioning. During an air conditioner maintenance check, the system will be checked for any leaks and that it has adequate refrigerant.
