Taking Care of Your Vehicle’s Air Conditioning
11 March 2016
/ Lindleys Autocentres
Of all vehicles that are manufactured today, over two thirds offer climate control as well as air conditioning systems as standard.
Most drivers only take their air conditioning into consideration during the hot summer months, but just because you don’t use it very often doesn’t mean that there will never be problems.
Car air conditioning problems usually arise when it’s least convenient, so like other parts of your vehicle your air conditioning system needs regular, consistent servicing to ensure it continues to work as it should.
Your vehicle’s air-con gas can actually flow out and be released from the air-con system, which will result in your air conditioning not working to its full potential. For this reason, car manufacturers recommend that you have your air-con system recharged at least once every 2 years - this service is not included in regular vehicle servicing.
Lindleys Autocentres offers a complete air-conditioning recharge service available at centres across Nottingham. For added convenience, you can book an appointment online here at the Lindleys Autocentres website.
The Air-Con Recharge Service at Lindleys
Recharging your vehicle’s air-con is a relatively straight-forward process. The process includes unfastening and discarding of any old refrigerant gas and oil from your air conditioning system, and then replacing it with the suitable amount of new lubricant as well as refrigerant.
Our team can have the whole recharge process done in no time. You can once again have fresh, cool air in your vehicle. During this service, we can also provide an antibacterial clean that will sanitise your car air conditioning and deodorise the smells that build up in the system. Our fully qualified team will show and explain to you the huge difference in your air-con system once we have completed the recharge. Air-con systems that are not recharged regularly will be less effective and have to work harder to produce cool air. This puts more strain on the engine and uses more fuel. If your air-con system has not been recharged in the past two years it will dramatically reduce efficiency.
