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 round
Running 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 Service
Since 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. Call us today on 01908 657 970 or click here to make a booking online.
