More than two thirds of vehicles are fitted with air conditioning and climate control systems as standard. Many of us are familiar with using air-con in our car on both hot and cold days, but not everyone is aware that, like other parts of your car, the air-conditioning system also needs regular attention to make sure it is working efficiently. At Scotts Mot Centre, in Newport, Gwent, we provide car air conditioning servicing and repairs.
Servicing the AC System
You may not be aware that more than 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 that your air-con system is recharged with gas and lubricant every two 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.
