One of the misconceptions is that the sole purpose of a car’s air conditioning is to keep it cool in hot weather. This couldn’t be further from the truth! When fully functioning, the air conditioning system helps to improve the internal air quality by filtering out bacteria, pollen and other pollutants. As a consequence of this, your car can remain comfortable and clean all year round.
However, over time, the refrigerant gas in your car’s air-con diminishes, especially when the system isn’t used regularly. With the British weather being as it is, there isn’t a year-round need for air conditioning and this is where the issues start arising. Car manufacturers recommend carrying out an air conditioning service every two years, to keep it working at its optimal level.
At RT Mechanics, we offer a pre check which will run through a few of the basics which will include:
We will then offer a full air-conditioning service which will banish any issues, and replace and replenish the refrigerant and lubricant levels within the system. We also have anti-bacterial solutions which will help keep the air quality inside the car as clean as can be.
