These systems should be used on both hot and cold days in order to cool, heat and dry the air. You should always be aware that parts of your air conditioning system need regular attention to make sure it is performing efficiently, properly and healthily for the car's occupants. Car manufacturer's for this reason recommend that if your car is more than two years old it will require a recharge of the gases. The system will also need servicing and cleaning.
90% of all new cars have air conditioning. Make sure you have it serviced regularly. Otherwise, it could break down, consume more fuel or lead to uncomfortable smells in the car.
An air conditioning service is not included in your cars normal service schedule so can be easily forgotten about, so if your car is older than 2 years old or maybe you have never had the air conditioning serviced now is a great time to get it serviced.
Why should I use air conditioning in the winter?
Two reasons. First, you save time in the morning as it will quickly demist your windscreen. Secondly, regularly turning it on for about 10 minutes, will guarantee the long life of the system.
What can I do myself to protect the air conditioning system?
The best thing you can do to help your air conditioning system, is to respect check-up times.
In order to avoid fungi or bacteria, we advise you to turn off the air conditioning about five minutes before stopping your car. Leave the ventilator turned on. As a result, the evaporator will be completely dry, making it unattractive for fungi and bacteria.
