Why is my air conditioning so important?
Most people believe their air-con system is solely there to keep them warm or cool while they’re driving. But, your air-con does much more than that.
In fact, it’s critical to the smooth running of your whole vehicle. It’s an essential part of heating and ventilating your car. It dehumidifies the air, which is a major factor in demisting your screen. And, without the right care, it can cause serious consequences.
That’s the reason we recommend you have it serviced every 24 months. Running without a serviced air-con system means you could quickly have an expensive problem on your hands. From blockages to leaks, a damaged air-con unit generally leads to other components in your vehicle having issues.
Why does my air conditioning loose gas?
All air-con systems naturally lose around 10% of gas every year. That’s expected.
However, if you think you’re losing more than 10%, you could have a big problem. So, don’t wait to see if it gets better on its own. It won’t. And, by the time you get it looked at, your repair bill could easily have tripled.
It’s much safer, and more affordable, to get your air-con checked out at the first sign of a problem.
What’s the difference between a service and a ‘regas’?
Service – Every part of your air conditioning is checked to ensure that it is all working in perfect order. Regas – Replaces refrigerant that’s naturally been lost.
