Ever wondered why you should get an air conditioning recharge service carried out on your vehicle?
The majority of vehicles on the road in Britain come with come with air conditioning and climate control systems as standard allowing drivers to experience the benefits of air con in their car or van on a hot day. But what many drivers don’t’ realise is that just like other parts of your car, the air conditioning system also needs regular attention to ensure it continues to work efficiently and effectively.
Vehicle air conditioning systems can lose refrigerant gas over time, particularly if they aren’t used regularly. This is why most car makers specify that your vehicle’s aircon system is recharged 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 an air con recharge.
