Car Air Conditioning
Car Air Conditioning in Stockport - Hallmark Motor Services
The need for car air conditioning repair and maintenance is steadily increasing as the majority of new cars now come with an air-conditioning system as standard. In common with most mechanical parts, the air-conditioning system in your car needs regular checks and servicing by air conditioning specialists.
At Hallmark Motor Services, we offer a complete range of services to ensure your system is running cleanly and safely. These services include anti-bacterial cleaning, leak testing and re-gassing.
Air-conditioning maintenance is often overlooked as it does not tend to affect the roadworthiness of the car. In the UK it is easy to forget you have air-conditioning as it is only normally required for a few months in the summer. However, if you do overlook this it can lead to the need for a costly air-conditioning repair in the future.
To avoid these problems, it is wise to have the air-conditioning system in your vehicle checked annually or at a minimum every two years. This is because the coolant gas gradually dissipates and is lost over a period of time, leading to the need for re-gassing of the system so air continues to blow cold.
Another warning sign to look out for is any sort of strange noise when you use the air conditioning. The system pump is called the ‘compressor’ and a strange noise could be an indication that this is failing.
There are things you can do to try and avoid expensive air-conditioning repairs and the simplest of these is to use your air conditioning all year round. In the colder months using it about once a fortnight would be sufficient. You can even use the air conditioning to de-mist the windscreen in colder weather. It works well and is a simple way to ensure that you use the air-conditioning all year round.
If you don’t use the air conditioning regularly enough, moisture can start to build up in the pipes and vents which makes it an ideal breeding ground for fungi, bacteria and mould. A professional clean and change of air filters by air-conditioning specialists will help to prevent this problem and will avoid an unpleasant musty smell in your car.
At Hallmark Motor Services we deal with all sorts of car repairs and we can identify and rectify car air conditioning problems, including re-gassing as well as maintaining the system to give you trouble-free service.
