Many cars now have air conditioning. On a warm day, it is a great piece of technology. Rayments Garage, a specialist MOT, diagnostics and service garage, provides a range of vehicle services including air conditioning servicing Cambridge drivers can rely on.
How can you get the most out of your car air conditioning? Here are some helpful suggestions.
1) On a warm day don’t just put the air conditioning straight on
On a warm day, don’t just jump into the car, close the doors and windows and put the air conditioning on full blast. This probably seems like common sense, but you are simply keeping the warm air in the car, making it harder for the air conditioning to cool the vehicle. Instead, open the doors and windows and wait a short while for the hot air to leave the vehicle before starting the air conditioning.
2) Park in the shade
Parking under cover or in shade will reduce direct heat on the car whilst you are parked. When you get in, the air conditioning has less work to reduce the temperature, and this means less strain for the air conditioning system.
3) Don’t aim the air conditioning vents straight at yourself
We have all done it – put on the air conditioning and pointed the fans straight at our face! But this may be preventing the cooled air from circulating and slow down the cooling process. Instead, point the vents in a way that will allow the air to circulate more freely.
4) Use the air conditioner regularly
Instead of using the air conditioner in the summer and leaving it through the winter, it is good to put it on from time to time during the winter. This will keep the air conditioning in working order better than sitting unused for months, and actually increase its useful lifespan.
5) Regularly take your car for air conditioning servicing
Most importantly, you should regularly book your car to have air conditioning servicing. By getting a specialist to look over the air conditioning system every year or two, they can make sure that it is fully working. Air conditioning servicing includes refilling the coolant levels, checking for any leaks in the system, and replacing the filters. This is essential if you wish to keep using your air conditioning. With air conditioning servicing, Cambridge drivers can also be confident that there are no hygiene issues in the car, such as mould or dirt in the filters that is blowing through the car with the fans.
