Air conditioning is found as a standard in over two-thirds of all vehicles manufactured today.
Many drivers experience the benefits of air con in their car or van on a hot day. However, just like other parts of your car, the air-conditioning system also needs regular attention to ensure it continues to work efficiently and effectively.
You may not be aware that over 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. Car manufacturers recommend everyone to recharge and clean their air conditioning with gas and, lubricant every 2 years. This service is not part of routine vehicle servicing, so if your vehicle is more than 2 years old it’s probably due to an air-con recharge.
Traffic jams on a hot day are almost unbearable without air con, especially when you have children in the back seat complaining about the heat. With air conditioning, you’re most likely going to have a more chill drive anywhere.
Why use it for winter?
To help dehumidify the air, reducing fogged up windows. It will also help clear up window condensation.
