There is nothing worse than getting in your car for a long journey during the summer months and when you turn your air conditioning on... it's not working!
It is vital that you get your air conditioning checked and serviced on a regular basis. We list below some of the reasons you may experience issues and why it's better to keep your air conditioning turned on all year round.
Why it's important to service your vehicle's air conditioning system
Servicing can highlight potential issues before they turn into major problems, such as the early detection of a refrigerant leak. Which, if left unresolved, could lead to compressor damage and avoid further expense.
Air conditioning systems not only cool the air in your vehicle but also assist in its filtration and circulation. During a service, the air filter can be replaced or cleaned, this removes pollutants like pollen and dust leading to an improvement in the quality levels of the air in your vehicle.
The efficiency and cooling capacity of the air conditioning system deteriorates over time as both refrigerant levels decrease, and some components wear out partly due to the accumulation of dirt or debris. Having your system regularly serviced will ensure it performs at its best, providing you with cool and comfortable air, especially during the hot summer months.
Lack of use in winter
Some of the air conditioning issues are caused by a lack of use during the winter months. We are amazed at how many drivers turn off their air conditioning in the winter. We recommend using air conditioning throughout the year to help maintain your refrigerant gas pressure. It will also highlight any potential problems before the weather gets hot! Air conditioning is also useful to demist your car windows throughout the year
