How do I remove moisture from my car's air conditioning?

I have some moisture in my air conditioning system (I have an older car, so that might be part of the problem). What do I need to do?

Answer
If you’re worried about your AC, it might be a good idea to take it to the mechanic. Moisture in your air conditioner means you’ll need to evacuate the system for about 30 minutes before recharging the system with:
  • Refrigerant
  • Oil
  • Ultraviolet dye (for leak detection).
The equipment required to do this on your own could cost anywhere from $120 to $200, while the average mechanic will charge around $160 to do the procedure.
While you’re waiting for the mechanic to get rid of that moisture, download the Jerry app! Jerry will collect car insurance quotes for you for free so you can shop around without the hassle and save your money for your AC repairs.
