Things you might not know about your car and its Air-Conditioning system:
Your system gradually loses the refrigerant gas (R134a) at a rate of about 10% per year. This affects the efficiency of the system and will ultimately cause it to cease operating. By having your system recharged, you can keep it running more effectively.
There is a small quantity of oil carried around the system by the gas called PAG oil. This lubricates the system. Reduced gas means reduced oil and reduced lubrication leading to seal failure. By running your Air-Conditioning permanently, seals are lubricated and gas loss is reduced considerably.
Just like your car engine needs an oil filter to keep the engine oil clean and working properly, your Air Con system has a similar item called a 'receiver drier'. This unit extracts moisture preventing corrosion inside the system and should be replaced with any repair to the system.
Have you ever looked at the back of your fridge and seen the gunge that collects there? Well the evaporator on your car has the same problem. If not cleaned regularly bacteria and mould build up creating bad odours in the car that can cause throat or eye irritation. A special anti-bacterial spray is the answer.
So whatever problem you have with your A/C give us a call and we can chat about the best way to get your A/C working efficiently again.
