Hello again, wonderful people of Letchworth and Hitchin! With the hot weather fast approaching, there’s no better time than now to ensure your car’s air conditioning is in top-notch condition. Nothing quite beats the relief of stepping into a cool car after being out in the summer sun! 😎☀️
Your trusty team at Letchworth Vehicle Repair Centre has put together these 5 simple tips to keep your car’s air conditioning running smoothly and efficiently
- Run It Regularly 🚗💨
Just like a good jog for us, your car’s air conditioning system benefits from a regular workout. Running your air conditioning at least once a week, irrespective of the season, helps maintain the gas pressure to keep the compressor working correctly. It also helps circulate the oil within the system, which lubricates the seals and reduces the chance of refrigerant leaks.
- Keep it Clean 🧼
A contaminated air conditioning system can lead to a host of problems, from bad odours to inefficient cooling. Our decontamination service, available as an add-on to a regas for just £29.95 inc. VAT, can help keep your system clean and fresh.
- Check Your Pollen Filter 🍃
The pollen filter works with your air conditioning to ensure that the air inside your vehicle is clean and free from dust and pollen. Depending on your driving conditions, you should change this filter every 10,000 to 15,000 miles. We offer pollen filter change services – price available on request.
- Seek Professional Help 👩🔧👨🔧
Periodically, your air conditioning system will require professional servicing. An air conditioning regas is recommended every two years to keep the system working efficiently. We offer air conditioning regas for R134a from £59 inc. VAT and for R1234yf from £125 inc. VAT.
- Don’t Ignore Issues 🚨
Is your system not cooling as it should? Or is there a strange smell when you turn it on? Ignoring these signs can lead to bigger, costlier problems down the line. If something seems off, let us at Letchworth Vehicle Repair Centre take a look. Our experienced team can diagnose and fix the issue before it becomes a major headache.
Remember, your car’s air conditioning is more than just a luxury – it’s an essential part of your comfort and safety on the road. Regular checks and maintenance can save you from a sweltering drive on a hot summer day!
