Many buyers are not ready to pay a substantial amount of money to buy a car with an air conditioner. Often they reason practically, believing that the driver and passenger in the summer can blow a stream of fresh air from open windows. But it is worth noting that summer riding is not always dynamic, therefore, on the highway, and in urban traffic jams, air conditioning in the car becomes just a vital element, as it is likely that passengers can receive heat stroke.
Why do many decide to install an air conditioner in a car
with their own hands? Because this procedure in a specialized salon is often quite expensive, requiring significant efforts from professionals who do everything necessary to prepare a place and debug the entire cabin cooling system in accordance with the placement of the remaining components of the car. This is due to the fact that installing an air conditioner in a car that is already fully assembled is a rather complicated and troublesome task in comparison with installation at the car assembly stage. However, this often does not stop vehicle owners. That is why you should imagine how to install an air conditioner
in a car with your own hands?
To begin with, it is worth dividing all foreign cars into two types according to where they were assembled. First of all, Japanese cars are highlighted, as well as vehicles of European brands and other cars produced with the assistance of European concerns or by a similar principle.
Installing an air conditioner in the car with your own hands, if the car belongs to the first category, as professionals estimate, is quite simple. This is due to the fact that the evaporator in these cars is located next to the dashboard or at the knees of the front passenger, which allows easy access to it. It is more difficult to install the air conditioner in the car with your own hands, if we are talking about a vehicle of the second category. This usually takes several days of operation, since the evaporator is usually located in the depths of the engine compartment. If the work is carried out by a professional, then his work can be facilitated due to the fact that the car has wires that are designed for air conditioning. The same can be said about the availability of specially allocated space for the device.
Installing air conditioning in the car from the cigarette lighter is quite simple. Usually everything you need to know is described in the manual for the car itself and the device that you are going to install.

The air conditioner radiator is often mounted in front of the engine radiator. The evaporator must be located either in the passenger compartment or under the hood. The air conditioner is charged at a specialized service.
It is worth saying that if you are not completely confident in your own abilities, then you should turn to specialists who are able to perform this task quite skillfully.
