AIR CONDITIONING IN WINTER
How long did you spend this morning waiting for your car windows to de-mist?!
FULL AIR CON SERVICE £54 INC. VAT
Most people only think about getting their Air Conditioning serviced during the warmer weather however, air conditioning systems don’t just remove heat from the air entering your car, it also removes moisture.
During wetter conditions water is transferred into the cabin by occupants of the vehicle. When heaters are used this causes water to evaporate steaming up the windows.
By using AC these issues can be reduced or eliminated which is why it’s important to maintain the AC in the winter months too.
Also, if you’re one of those people who don’t use their air conditioning during the colder months, the main cause of expensive air conditioning part failures is caused by build up of moisture in the system causing internal corrosion to these parts. If you run your air conditioning regularly throughout the year it helps to alleviate this problem!

VEHICLE AIR CONDITIONING
Air conditioning is a system used to create and maintain a comfortable driving environment inside a vehicle. It does this by transferring the heat from inside a vehicle to the outside keeping the temperature down inside the car. The system cools, dries and cleans the air.
The most basic systems have manual temperature control but systems are becoming more complex with full climate control on a lot of modern cars which rely on a lot of sensors to maintain temperature.
Over 2/3 of vehicles are fitted with climate control systems as standard these days. Many of us are familiar with using air con in our car on both hot and cold days, but not everyone is aware that the air conditioning system also needs regular attention to make sure it is working efficiently.
Over 10% of air con gas permeates from the air con system every year, which means that it may not work as well as it should. This is why car manufacturers recommend your air con system is recharged with gas and lubricant every 2 years. This service is not part of routine vehicle servicing, so if your vehicle is more than 2 years old it’s probably due a recharge.
A poor air con system can increase your fuel costs as the air conditioning pump needs to work harder.
