No one likes bad smelling A/Cs. There are two main causes of bad A/C smells. One is old, dirty air in the cabin filter. An evaporator box that has developed mold could be a sign of more serious problems. An AC can fail for many reasons, as mentioned above. This could be due to a problem within one of its components or a leakage in one of its hoses. It is important that an AC failure be reported to a licensed repair shop. No refrigerant may be released into the air, as per law.
Did you know 90% of cars have an air conditioning problem? Over half of these cars just need to be serviced. Repairs to air conditioning systems can cost as little as $100 for a damaged o-ring and as much as $2500 for a malfunctioning evaporator. O-ring replacements can be done inexpensively, but larger repairs, such as replacing the evaporator, could run into thousands of dollars.

You should have your cabin air filter checked if you smell a musty odor coming from your car. Clogged cabin filters are a sign of mold or mildew buildup in the evaporator. This is most likely the reason for the musty odor. A clogged cabin filter can also cause a reduction in the air volume coming into the cabin. This will have a negative impact on the alternator and drive train as well as other important car parts.
Modern air conditioner problems are often due to operational or airflow problems. First, evaluate the vehicle and determine what is causing the problem. First, the technician will inspect all components of the A/C system. The technician will connect the appropriate A/C machine to the vehicle's type of air conditioning system. He then checks the pressure and measures the level of refrigerant and compares it with the manufacturer's specifications. After the testing is completed, the technician can determine whether the problem with your air conditioner is caused by a leak, lack, restriction, blockage, or difficulty with your compressor.
