We really have enjoyed some great summer weather days here in the UK over recent weeks, however getting into a car that has been sat in the sun for several hours can be stifling. Worse still, if you find out that your air conditioning system is not running efficiently, and you have a long holiday journey planned, you could begin to feel a bit hot and bothered!
According to recent data released by whocanfixmycar.com – a whopping 2,862 air conditioning system jobs were booked in throughout the month of June 2018 as temperatures across the UK reached 28.6°C towards the end of the month.
Here at Stourbridge Automotive Ltd we are encouraging all vehicle owners to have their air conditioning system checked before embarking on a long journey this summer holiday. Air Conditioning can be a lifeline on hot days and especially on busy motorways where your journey time could take longer than usual, so it’s worth getting it serviced before you leave.
Remember your air conditioning system check is not part of your MOT
Your air conditioning system service isn’t part of your MOT check, so please ensure that you request a check when you book in for a MOT Test or vehicle service, it’s worthwhile having your air conditioning system checked once and year to ensure that it regularly runs in good working order.
It is also worth informing drivers that through the cooler winter months, they should run the vehicle’s your air conditioning system every so often, as subsequently by not switching the system on for long periods of time could damage the components.
