With summertime finally here, the weather is certainly warming up, which is great news if you are planning days out or making driving trips in your car. Nevertheless, nobody likes sitting in a hot and stuffy vehicle and sometimes even opening the windows just isn’t enough to improve the airflow. So, with the sizzling heat, also brings on the urgency to turn on our air-conditioning, to cool us down whilst driving.
Consequently, if you haven’t turned on the air-conditioning through the winter months, then it may need a little attention. If it is giving out bad odours or doesn’t seem to function properly, then it may need an air-conditioning inspection.
Here at Stourbridge Automotive we provide air-conditioning inspection for your Audi, BMW, MINI, Mercedes Jaguar, Land Rover or Range Rover. Our qualified technicians carry out a complete air conditioning service on r134a systems and new r1234yf systems to ensure that required standards are met.
An air-conditioning inspection includes:
- Checking gas levels
- Examining the drive belt system
- Investigating an leaks
- Vacuuming out the system to remove any impurities and moisture
Driving in the heat
Don’t forget to stay prepared in the hot weather, especially if you are embarking on a longer journey. The heat can tire drivers and passengers quickly, so it is important to carry plenty of fluids and take regular breaks to keep you feeling refreshed. Finally try to stay out of the heat by not driving during lunchtime to mid-afternoon when the sun is at its hottest.
