We keep a cool head with our air conditioning service
Especially in summer, those who have air conditioning in their car no longer want to do without it.
90% of all new cars now roll off the assembly line with air conditioning. In addition to the plus in comfort, the air conditioning system also ensures greater safety, because a “cool head” can react faster and better.
Studies have shown that from a temperature of 25 ° C, the reaction time deteriorates by 65% within an hour.
But the air conditioning system also ensures greater safety in winter. The improved defrost function clears fogged windows more quickly.
Where there is light, there is also shadow. Many complain that the air conditioning does not cool properly or even smells. There is a simple reason for this: Air conditioning systems cannot be 100% sealed at the factory. This means that the system loses approx. 8-10% of its coolant per year. In the area of the evaporator, the warm and humid environment can cause fungi and bacteria to develop. These spread unpleasant smells.
Here are practical tips on how to use the air conditioning correctly:
- Let the air conditioning system regularly for at least 10 minutes run, even in winter. This is the only way that the lubrication ensures that the system is leak-proof. In addition, the air conditioning system helps defrost fogged windows more quickly in winter.
- About 5 min. before the end of the journey, switch off the air conditioning with the fan running. This allows the surface of the evaporator to dry off better. Fungi and bacteria therefore have less chance of establishing themselves.
- Annual disinfection and change of pollen filter
- Have the air conditioning serviced.
Regular maintenance (at least every 2 years) protects against high repair costs for the entire system.
