Air Conditioning Tips

As you are driving around the Louisville-area during the spring and summer months, are you pumping the air conditioning? Have you noticed any differences in the A/C after the fall and winter months? Well, the air conditioning system may have some issues when you start using it again. Luckily, it’s nothing severe, and our service team at Fisher Honda can help you prevent and resolve any issues that you notice with your vehicle. Here we will answer a few questions we get regularly regarding your Honda air conditioning system:

  • Why is there water under my car?
  • Why is there a smell coming from my air conditioning?
  • How to dry out your A/C system

Air Conditioning Tips: Why Is There Water Under My Car?

As the change of season rolls around and Broomfield drivers start heading out on trips around town, they may notice more about their vehicle’s condition. A common question we get at Fisher Honda is, “why is there water under my car?” If you notice a liquid under your car, but it doesn’t smell or have color it’s probably just water. This is caused by your A/C system, which is designed to remove water from the air. The water that’s removed from the air is then released through the evaporator drain tube located beneath your Honda model. 

Air Conditioning Tips: Why Is There a Smell Coming from My Air Conditioning? 

So, you know that your A/C system removes water from the air, which escapes through the evaporator drain tube beneath the vehicle. If that’s the case, why is there a smell coming from my air conditioning? Well, some of that water won’t escape, and over time this can cause a musty smell. Luckily, there are products at Fisher Honda we can use in your fresh air intake to eliminate that odor, and put on a fresh new cabin filter. Feel free to schedule an appointment near Broomfield and we can get that taken care of ASAP. 

Air Conditioning Tips: How to Dry Out Your A/C System

So, if you want to prevent or reduce the musty smell in your vehicle there are a few simple things you can do. On especially hot or cold days, utilize the recirculation button when you are starting up your vehicle. Not only does this help cool or heat your vehicle faster, but it also isn’t getting air from the intake, which allows the system to dry. 

We also suggest turning off your A/C and just recirculating the air for a mile or two prior to parking to help prevent the must smell by drying out the A/C between uses.
