Over 2/3 of vehicles are fitted with air conditioning and climate control systems as standard these days. Many of us are familiar with using air-con in our car on both hot and cold days, but not many people are aware that like other parts of your car, the air-conditioning system also requires regular attention to ensure its working efficiently.
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. For this reason Penfold Motors recommend your Air-Con system is serviced and any gas and lubricant loss corrected 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 a recharge.
Penfold Motors now offer a complete air conditioning recharge service available at both Beckenham and Lewisham branches. Within an hour the whole recharge process is completed. In addition to the service, the process can also include a system de-bug to clear bacterial build up from within the system, which will remove any unpleasant odours.
Air-Con systems not fully recharged will be less effective and have to work harder putting more strain on the engine and using more fuel. If your Air-Con system has not been recharged in 2 years it will dramatically reduce efficiency.
During the hotter summer months motorists use the Air-Con system more; however your system is also useful in winter. Air-Con systems create dry warm air rather than the normal humid air from outside and this de-mists your car windscreen more quickly.
To keep your Air-Con system fully charged all year, why not call into Penfolds and have your vehicle’s air conditioning system recharged with gas and lubricant today.
