All of us demand a lot from our cars. Not only we do expect it to start and run without problems, we also want the heater to keep us warm when it is cold and the air conditioning to keep us cool when it is hot. Air conditioning comes from our car's highly structured air conditioning system. Though, air conditioning units can be added to most vehicles on the road, if they did not come so equipped from the factory. A complete air conditioning system is composed of a compressor, a condenser, hoses, vents and a controller.
We often think that our car air conditioners keep us cool while inside our vehicle. But the fact is, our car air conditioning system don't really blow cold air inside our vehicle. Instead of adding "cold" air to our car's interior, it actually eliminates the heat from the outside air, cleaning and dehumidifying and keeping it at the temperature we want. Then the "cooled air is sent to our car's interior in an "un-heated" condition.
And what facilitates the transfer of hot air from the cabin of your vehicle to its exterior? It is the A/C compressor. The A/C compressor is a belt driven pump that is fastened to the car's engine. Like the human heart, your Volkswagen A/C compressor pumps the AC coolant in a closed loop throughout your Volkswagen AC system. By doing so, it allows the refrigerant to move from the evaporator, after absorbing heat, to the condenser where the refrigerant is cooled and heat is released to the outside world.
Your Volkswagen AC compressor will continue to serve its purpose for as long as it's not deteriorated. Therefore, it is only proper to give your Volkswagen AC compressor the best of care. If it needs replacements, have it replaced right away. There are many online auto parts stores that would cater your needs.
