Like just about any other form of modern technology with moving parts, the air-conditioning system in your car needs to get a regular service to maintain peak efficiency.
A Car Air Conditioning Service must be carried out by qualified technicians and is the best way to maintain peak efficiency and ensure you can keep your cool no matter what the weather.
Over time the air conditioning gases in your car will escape from the AC or Climate Control system. This is because car air conditioning systems are designed to leak. Car engines vibrate, piping moves and the rubber rings expand and contract allowing leakage. This leakage can be caused when the air-con is not used during the winter months, thus allowing the small “O”ring seals to dry out resulting in a gradual deterioration in air-con performance. If this continues, eventually the system will not be able to function at all. Most problems of this type can be put right fairly easily by having a leak check of your system followed by a complete evacuation and refill of your refrigerant, often referred to as a “re-gas”.
Why do Car Air Conditioners Need Regular Servicing?
The air con's compressor needs to have the oil checked and/or changed to prevent it from seizing up. When the air filters become clogged with dirt and bacteria, it will affect the performance of the entire system and can even cause automotive air conditioners to quit working altogether - not to mention the ill effect it can have on your health.
It’s also very important that the rubber seals are checked for any leaks or deterioration. When air conditioner seals start to leak gas your air con system as a whole will begin to deteriorate, decreasing its efficiency and increasing your use of fuel.
