The most difficult AC complaints to resolve are the system blows warm, or the air is not as cold as it once was. The causes of the declining performance could be caused by a multitude of components and conditions. In a 45-minute webinar, the experts from Transtar AC will cover the possible causes of AC failure.

The training session will cover:

  • Interpreting high-side and low-side gauge pressures for:
    • Restrictions to refrigerant flow
    • Air or moisture trapped in the system
    • Incorrect refrigerant charge
    • Faulty or worn compressor
  • Measuring and understanding vent temperature drop
  • Troubleshooting automatic and dual-zone temperature control systems
