When you get in the car on very hot days make sure you open as many windows as possible, set the A/C controls to MAX and the fan to high. This will blow all the hot air from the car and the inside air temperature will cool down quickly. Once the vehicle interior has cooled down, shut the windows and keep them shut.
Once the temperature within the vehicle has cooled down use the recirculating mode to keep the car cool. However on longer journeys it is advised to use the fresh mode to reduce the build up of CO2 that can occur.
Your air conditioner not only cools the vehicle but also removes the humidity that causes the windscreen to fog up. Even in winter the air conditioner can be used to defog the windscreen whilst the heater is running.
If your air conditioner seems to produce a bad smell, this could be the result of a build up of harmful bacteria. Setting the system on fresh mode occasionally can help this problem but if it still persists Mobile Air Conditioning Services can help. We have the latest Ozone machines designed to kill all the bacteria and leave your car smelling fresh and clean.
By running your air conditioner at 10 minutes at least once a week, even through winter will help keep the system in tip top working order. Running it regularly keeps the compressor seals lubricated and the hoses supple helping to prevent refrigerant leaks.
It is recommended that your vehicle has a full air conditioning service every two years. Getting this done in the cooler months will ensure it is working at its optimum during the warmer months. It is also recommended that the receiver drier is replaced at the time of the service At Mobile Air Conditioning Services a full A/C service includes: Visually inspect all air conditioning components. Determine correct refrigerant levels. Pressure check for leaks and add UV dye to the system Change the oil in the compressor Evacuate the system Filter and clean refrigerant Regas system with clean refrigerant. Run and test system
Your car air conditioning system is similar to a your fridge and freezer. The refrigerant (gas) is contained in the system and does not get “used up” or run out. Admittedly a very small amount may permeate through the hoses over the years but not enough to stop your air conditioner from working. If your system is low in gas then there is probably a leak somewhere that will need to be repaired. It is illegal in Australia to “regas” an air conditioning system without looking for and repairing any leaks and you should be wary of anyone who offers a regas without inspecting the system thoroughly first.
