Air Conditioning: Why you shouldn’t settle for sizzling
We all love our air conditioners in the summer, they save us from melting away during rush hour traffic and make car journeys in the heat bearable. At QCS, we offer full air conditioning services to keep you cool all year round - but how much do you actually know about your AC?Did you know?...you should use your air con at least once a fortnight, all year roundRunning your AC for a least 5 minutes every few weeks is vital to maintain the condition of your air conditioner. The coolant in the AC contains lubricant which keeps all the rubber seals and pipework in tip top condition.Did you know…not servicing your air con can make you ill!Scary but true! When air conditioning is not in use, the build-up of condensation acts as a breeding ground for bacteria and fungi, which results in an unpleasant smell when you switch on the air conditioning in your car. Serving your AC (we recommend once every 2 years) will keep your air con unit clean, avoiding the possibility of inhaling nasty bacteria.Did you know…air conditioning is not part of your MOT or ServiceSince having the AC in your car is not critical for the safety of your vehicle, the MOT or Service is not included. A separate air con service is recommended and can be booked at QCS at any time, or alongside a service – just ask our team.If you need your air conditioning servicing, we offer a complete inspection, re-gas service and decontamination treatment.

The Rise of TerraClean in light of new MOT test rules
On the 20th May 2018, the UK government introduced a series of changes and new rules with regards to MOT testing, including the introduction of limits for emissions on diesel particular filters (DPF) for diesel cars. So, what does this mean for you? A DPF is an important part of a diesel car, it captures and stores exhaust soot in order to reduce emissions. The law now gives stricter limits for DPF’s, during MOT testing, meaning cars will receive an automatic fail if their DPF emits visible smoke of any colour. Garages will now also look into your DPF system to ensure nothing has been altered and can automatically fail any diesel car if tampering is detected.What can I do? Since the new law came into effect, there has been a noticeable uprise in demand for TerraClean’s DPF cleaning service. TerraClean is a completely safe and non-intrusive cleaning system, it uses highly refined, non-harmful fuel and advanced patented technology to clean your DPF.TerraClean involves the testing and cleaning of the DPF, it also helps the environment by removing stubborn carbon deposits without the need for DPF removal. It truly is a highly recommended, healthy option for your car and an excellent solution in light of the stricter MOT laws for diesel cars. What’s not to love? QCS provide a full TerraClean Decarbonising Service, which can help ensure your diesel car passes its MOT, and ultimately results in a healthier and more efficient vehicle. If you are looking to restore performance, improve fuel economy and reduce emissions then TerraClean is for you! Book your TerraClean now by calling us on 01908 657970.
