Did you know that your vehicle’s air conditioning system isn’t checked during a standard vehicle service? You have to get a separate service done for your air conditioning system – at Grimsdyke Service Station, we offer air con services for all kinds of vehicles. Having this service will help your vehicle stay cool during the warmer months of the year. Our knowledgeable mechanics can service your air con system in a timely manner and will ensure that it’s working properly.
Aside from cooling your vehicle cabin in the summer – your air con also stops pollen, dust and other debris from entering your cabin through its filter system. This leads to a build up of dirt over time, so, during this service, we can carry out an antibacterial clean. Doing this will keep the cool air flowing into your vehicle when required. Air conditioning services are similar MOT tests but specifically for air cons – they ensure that everything in the system is running okay and that enough cool air is being produced. To optimise the health of your vehicle’s air con, you should get it checked every two years to keep it in the best possible condition.
It’s thought that on average, vehicle air cons are not in use for at least half of the year – particularly during the autumn and winter months as it’s not necessary. During this time, it’s thought that 20% of the vital refrigerant gas and lubricant will escape through the vents, resulting in your air con not working properly. Our facilities in Harrow allow us to work efficiently and in a timely manner. During the service, we will restore all the vital gases and give your air con system a deep anti-bacterial treatment that will stop bacteria from growing on the vents. This service will leave your vehicle air con feeling refreshed. Our team is trained to spot any damage and fix it.
From time to time, your air con may stop working properly and when the system is turned on it might only be releasing warm air. Ignoring this could cost you more money in the future, so, it’s important that you get it checked. If it’s left for too long your vehicle’s system may get damaged as it will have to work harder to power the air con and subsequently your engine too. This could potentially result in you spending more money than necessary on fuel.
At Grimsdyke Service Station, we are always investing in state of the art equipment and technology – including for our air conditioning services. This investment allows us to work more quickly to detect leaks within your air con system. Once we know what the problem is we can work towards resolving it for you.
