Air Conditioning Service and Maintenance Are Vital!

Did you know that manufacturers recommend checking your Climate Control Air Conditioning systems every two years to help keep your family cool? This usually means evacuating the refrigerant gas, replacing the lubricating oil, and carrying out a system leak test.

Over time the air conditioning gasses escape causing the engine to vibrate, piping to move and rubber rings to expand and contract, resulting in leakage. This worsens if the air-con is not used during the winter months as with no oil passing through the system, the small rubber “O” ring seals can dry out resulting in increased leakage and a gradual deterioration in performance.

If your car air conditioner isn’t running efficiently, needs a re-gas, or you haven’t had it serviced for a long time, now is your moment.

Did you know the state of your air conditioning system doesn’t just impact the temperature of your car? If you are experiencing bad smells coming from the air ventilation system, this may be caused by a build-up of bacteria. As your car ages, or when the air conditioning systems are used infrequently, bacteria, micro-organisms, mold, and fungus start growing behind the dash panel on the evaporator causing some very unpleasant odors which can be harmful to your family. Thankfully, it’s good to know that cleaning your system is an easy and inexpensive process at Levrett Transmission.e
