Did you know?
That over 2/3 of vehicles are fitted with an air conditioning and climate control system as standard these days?
Car Air Con systems need recharging with gas & lubricant every 2 years.
An estimated 10% of car Air Con gas permeates from the system every year.
Air Con service is not part of your routine vehicle servicing, so if your vehicle is more than 2 years old it’s probably due a recharge service.
Many of us are familiar with using air-con in our car on both hot and cold days, but just like other parts of your car, perhaps what you didn’t realise that your air-conditioning system also needs regular attention to make sure it is works efficiently.
With over 10% of air-con gas permeating from your air-con system every year, the likelihood is that it may not work be working as effectively as it should, which is why car manufacturers recommend your Air-Con system is recharged with gas and lubricant every 2 years.
During the hotter summer months there is a good chance you will be using your Air-Con system more. However did you know your system is also useful in winter? Air-Con systems create dry warm air rather than the normal humid air from outside and this helps to de-mists your car windscreen more quickly. However if your car Air Con system has not been recharged in 2 years it will dramatically reduce in efficiency, be less effective, and will have to work that much harder placing more strain on the engine and using more fuel.
