Importance of Air Conditioning
A sufficient supply of air conditioning benefits us all in those hot summer days and minimises the risk of an overheated vehicle. In fact, air-conditioning actually eliminates pollutants which ensure the air inside your vehicle is free of harmful bacteria. The air con system can also be used for demisting the windscreen to improve your view of the road. It’s fair to say it is essential the cooling system works all year round!
You may not necessarily use the the air conditioning system often especially during colder months, however the system can lose refrigerant gas if not used regularly.
