Your car air conditioning is not just useful to keep you cool in the summer, but it also helps to make sure that your windscreen doesn’t fog in winter or wetter seasons. Your air conditioning should blow out cold, dry air throughout the year, ensuring that your drive is safe and comfortable.
Over time, your vehicle loses vital refrigerant gas from the system which can be up to 10% every year. It is recommended that customers get an air conditioning service at least once every 2 years. This is order to replace the gas in the system and enabling it to run effectively all year round.
No cold air – if your air conditioning seems to be working but the air that is coming out isn’t cold, then that is when you need to get an air conditioning service. It’s an indication there isn’t enough refrigerant gas in the system. However, it could also be a sign of any leaks or blockages in the system.
Foul odour coming from the system – during an air conditioning service at Chigwell Car Servicing, we’ll make sure that your system gets thoroughly cleaned to remove any foul smells that are caused. Dirt and dust can get caught up in the system, creating a layer of bacteria. If this is blown into the air, it can cause a smell a bit like mildew in your vehicle.
Taking longer to cool down than normal – If your car’s air conditioning is taking longer to cool down than it normally would, it could be a sign there’s something wrong. Most people put it down to higher temperatures in the air, but actually, it could mean that your refrigerant gas is running out.
Condensation – if you’re experiencing condensation, particularly on the underside of your dashboard, it could be a sign of a leak. Your air conditioning is made up of different components including an evaporator, refrigerant, compressor and condenser all of which help turn the air into cool, dry air. If there is a problem with any of these components it can cause condensation in your car, which can turn carpets and seats damp.
Running a faulty car air conditioning system can possibly cause worse problems and cost more money in the long run.
