The realisation of cooler autumn and winter temperatures are certainly becoming a regular familiarity when we start up our vehicles on the cold mornings and evenings.
Choosing to turn on your air-conditioning would probably be the last option you would consider when setting off at this time of year. Surely, I only use my air-conditioning in the summer, we hear you say?
Having enjoyed the convenience of keeping your car cool through the hot summer months, now is the time to book an air-conditioning service so that it operates in good working conditions throughout the winter, in preparation for next summer and to reduce the risk of any larger repair bills at a later date.
An Air-conditioning service will prolong a vehicle lifespan
Keeping your air-conditioning service up to date is an essential part of car maintenance and will prevent components from seizing up or any signs of bad odour, due to a build-up of bacteria and mould through the winter months. As part our air-conditioning service, Stourbridge Automotive Ltd will replace the gas and lubricant and carry out an overall check of components within the air-conditioning system.
Finally, we recommend intermittently running your vehicle air-conditioning throughout the winter, to ensure that the systems continues to operate competently and will help to prolong the lifespan of the vehicle.
According to the RAC, one way to do this is to demist your windows using the air-conditioning system. This is because the air that comes out of the vents is dry and so the air-conditioning can act as a dehumidifier by removing moisture from the air which will keep the windscreen clear from steam and frost.
