Why do I need to get my air conditioning system checked?
How much do you rely on your air conditioning system in warm weather? Do you remember the feeling in summer of a warm stream of air coming out your air vents? With that in mind, you need your air conditioning system to be working at its optimum level of efficiency.
Whilst your air conditioning system is low maintenance, it is not maintenance free. It is quite common for people to turn off their air conditioning system throughout the winter months. However, in doing so, any condensation left in the pipework, together with the heat generated by the engine, provides an ideal environment for bacteria and mould spores to develop. This may be noticeable by unpleasant odours, or you may find you are affected by sore throats and allergic reactions.
The air conditioning system, like any mechanical system, requires routine servicing to maintain its effectiveness. The last thing you need is for the system to perform inadequately, draining your engine power, or to stop working completely, especially in warm weather.
How can I get rid of smells and bacteria from my air conditioning system?
Fortunately, you can rid yourself of the problems caused by the unpleasant presence of mould and bacteria, courtesy of a simple air conditioning de-bug, which takes around 30 minutes and could be done "while-you-wait".
However, regardless of whether you use your air conditioning system over the winter months or not, we recommend you have a full air conditioning service on an annual basis.
This will ensure your whole air conditioning system is working effectively. Within this service your car will be tested for leaks within the system, this is particularly important since the oil lubricating the air conditioning compressor is suspended within the refrigerant gas. The refrigerant gas will then be removed and filtered before returning it to the system and topping up where necessary, together with fresh oil.
What should I do next?
We will be able to provide either or both of these services for you, whether you want a "while-you-wait" cleanse of bugs from your air conditioning system, or a full system service.
