Air Conditioning Keeping your cool in summer
Like any other component of a vehicle, the air conditioning system needs regular checks to make sure it is working as intended. As this is not included within the routine vehicle servicing, it is important to have this checked if your car is more than 2 years old. Generally car manufacturers recommend your air conditioning system is recharged with gas and lubricant every 2 years. This is due to over 10% of gas from the air conditioning system permeating every year.
Why should I get an Air conditioning system re-charge?
An air conditioning system which is not fully recharged will be less effective. It will need to work harder consequently putting more strain on the engine and using more fuel. So to ensure that you are being fuel efficient it is important to ensure your air conditioning system is checked.
Remember that your air conditioning system is just as important in the winter as it is in the summer. This is due to it creating dry warm air rather than using the normal humid air from outside. Dry warm air created by the air conditioning system will demist your car windscreen more quickly and help you to use less fuel when demisting your windscreen.
