Air Conditioning is now fitted as standard on most makes of vehicles, due to the major enhancement it brings to passenger comfort.
However most owners are not aware that Air Conditioning requires regular servicing. If the Air Conditioning is not used throughout the year, the system will tend to gradually lose refrigerants as it permeates through the physical joins between components.
Over time this will cause deterioration in performance. Also stale bacteria can cause an unpleasant aroma when used infrequently.
Worse still, if you leave the Air Conditioning operating with low refrigerant levels more serious problems can occur, lubricant circulation may be affected and air or moisture may enter the system.
