Most cars incorporate air-conditioning into the climate control, to give you a choice between heating and cooling the interior, and much like every other complex system, it does require maintenance. The system uses a gas refrigerant that dissipates over a period of time, meaning that the system needs to be recharged with the refrigerant gas.
Low Levels of Refrigerant
If the refrigerant level is too low, this can damage the system, as air and moisture can enter the system, and if this is not addressed you might have to consider car air conditioning replacement in Bexhill-on-Sea from a local specialist. One sure sign that the refrigerant levels are low is a lack of cool air when using the a/c, which might begin with a loss of climate control performance after a few hours of driving, and if you notice the a/c isn’t as effective after an extended period of driving, book your car in for an a/c service and have the refrigerant topped up.
Bacteria Build Up in the Winter
In the cold months, the car a/c is never used, which gives bugs and bacteria a chance to become established, so you should have your a/c serviced in the early spring, prior to the arrival of the hot weather, which will ensure that your a/c smells fresh and clean. If the system is not cleaned out prior to use in the summer, this could result in an unpleasant odour within the vehicle.
Your car’s climate control system is essential in the hot summer months, so it needs to be serviced from time to time.
