Air Conditioning

Your car air conditioning system not only cools the temperature inside your car, it helps to filter out pollen, pollutants, and airborne bacteria. To book in for an air conditioning system service, call A1 Motor Group today!

The air conditioning system in a car works in a similar way to a fridge. The air is cooled with a refrigerant gas and then circulates through your car.

How to get the most from your car air conditioning system

There are several ways you can get the most from your car air conditioning system.

If you are using your air conditioning system, close your car windows. When it is hot weather, it is tempting to open your windows for extra cold air. However, if your windows are open and your air conditioning system is switched on, you are wasting fuel and pumping cooled air outside of the car through the open windows.

As with oil and other liquids in your vehicle, the coolant used by the air conditioning system needs to be regularly refreshed. Periodically, the coolant must be drained, refilled and key components lubricated to keep them working efficiently. Most manufacturers recommend this is done every two years, but make sure to check your own car handbook.

If your coolant levels are reducing faster than expected, this could indicate a leak in your system. It is important to get this checked as the gases are harmful to the environment.

At A1 Motor Group, we can recharge your air conditioning system and check for leaks as part of the service. Our highly skilled technicians will also lubricate all the moving parts to prolong the life span of your air conditioning system.

Remember to keep your air conditioning system clean. If you notice a nasty smell when using your air conditioning system, this can simply be a sign that your air conditioning system needs cleaning.

Unpleasant odours are caused by a build-up of dust and liquid which create a breeding ground for bacteria. At A1 Motor Group we offer an air conditioning system clean as part of the service which gets rid of 99% of bacteria and leaves your air conditioning system as clean as new.
