CONSIDER THESE HANDY TIPS!

Is your car over 4 years old? Has your air conditioning ever been serviced? Most new cars will need a service after 4 to 5 years.

Recommended air conditioning service is every 1 to 2 years. A good time is before summer, even in winter or before going on a long trip.

Has your cab filter been replaced?

Most new cars up to 10 years old have a cab filter and this blocks up and restricts air flow out of the vents.

It is important to run your air conditioning unit for about 5 minutes every 2 weeks – this lubricates the air conditioning system maintaining its integrity.

Do not use your air conditioning if it’s not as cold as usual as this can cause damage to the compressor which can be very expensive to replace.

Turn air conditioning off immediately if there are any noises when running, this will stop any further damage.

On very hot days or in traffic – switch vents from fresh air to recirculate, this shuts out all outside air and reuses the already cool air inside the car.

When your air conditioning unit is in use, make sure your heater is turned off fully.

In raining weather your air conditioning unit will demist your windscreen quickly.

The slower the fan speed the cooler the air conditioned air will come out of the vents.

If your car has been parked in the sun - when you drive off turn the air conditioning on and put your windows down for a few minutes to suck hot air out of the car. This will assist in cooling the car down faster.
