Like just about any modern technology that has moving parts, the air conditioning system in your car needs to get a regular service. The compressor needs to have the oil checked or changed to prevent it from seizing up, When the air filters become clogged with dirt and bacteria and it will affect the performance of the entire system and it can even cause it to quit working altogether, and it can be bad for your health. It’s also very important that the rubber seals need to be checked for any leaks or deterioration because when they start to leak gas then your air con system will begin to deteriorate and it will cost you more in fuel. New car lose approximately 20% of their gas in the first two years.
The special Refrigerant gas in a car air conditioning system is what creates ‘the cool’ this gas is compressed via the compressor which makes it’s temperature drop and that cold gas is pumped through the system to cool the air, which is then circulated through your car. When this gas has started to leak or evaporate the compressor has to work harder and this puts a bigger load on your car’s engine meaning you are using even more fuel.
To run in top condition the refrigerant gas in your car air conditioner needs to be recharged completely within four years from the manufacture date and every two to three years after that.
By getting an annual Car air-con service you will help prevent costly breakdowns in the future – and a well serviced air-con actually saves you money because it uses less petrol.
