If you turn your air conditioning system off in winter it can leave condensation in the pipework. This, together with heat from the engine, provides an ideal breathing ground for bacteria and mould spores, which an result in sore throats and allergic reactions.
Also, in the winter months windows tend to mist up if the filter is blocked, as the warm air stream cannot circulate properly.
It is recommend a full air conditioning service is carried out at least every two years although many suggest an annual service. Your cars air conditioning systems can lose up to 50% efficiency which puts the system under added load and reducing fuel consumption. This service generally is overlooked as air conditioning systems are usually just used to cool down the temperature in the vehicle and make us feel more comfortable, however if not serviced and checked annually, the moisture created by the system can become mouldy.
Contact our service department using the enquiry form on this page, and they will get in touch to book your car in to have the air conditioning system checked and re-charged.
