Car Air Conditioning service.
It’s all too easy to forget about servicing the Car air-con until it’s too late, Like when you’re sitting in traffic on a boiling hot day, or freezing cold on a frosty early morning drive - But you should never wait when it comes to the car’s cooling and heating system.
It’s the same as anything else in your car - the air conditioning system needs regular servicing on all its parts. The compressor needs oil, or it will seize up, The filter gets clogged with dirt, bacteria and moisture- a blocked air-con filter will affect the performance of the entire system and it can even cause it to quit working entirely, and the rubber seals need to be checked for any leaks or deterioration.
Air Conditioning Re-Gas
The Refrigerant in your car’s air conditioning system is a special gas that needs to be replaced or recharged completely within four years from the manufacturing date and then again every two to three years to keep its maximum effectiveness.
Having an annual service on your car air con will help to prevent costly breakdowns – and a well serviced air-conditioner in your car will actually use less petrol – because when the compressor has to work harder due to faults it puts a bigger load on your car’s engine and you use more fuel.
Servicing on your air conditioning system will prevent malfunctions and save you money in the long run and it means you won’t find yourself stuck with a car full of hot air.
