At BCL MOT Centre, we can take your vehicle in for an air conditioning service. Doing this will allow you to stay cool in your vehicle during the warmer months of the year. Our highly-qualified technicians can service your air con system in a timely manner and will ensure that it’s working properly. (Fun fact: This isn’t included in a regular vehicle service, so, it’s important to get it checked at the right intervals.)
Aside from cooling your vehicle cabin in the summer – your air-con also stops pollen, dust and other debris from entering your cabin through its filter system. This leads to a build-up of dirt over time, so, during this service, we can carry out an antibacterial clean. Doing this will keep the cool air flowing into your vehicle when required.
Air conditioning services are like MOT tests but specifically for air cons – they ensure that everything in the system is running okay and that enough cool air is being produced. It’s recommended that you should get your vehicle’s air-con checked every two years to keep it in the best possible condition. Air cons are generally not used for at least half of the year during the colder months as it’s not necessary. During this time, it’s thought that 20% of the vital refrigerant gas and lubricant will escape through the vents, resulting in your air con not working properly. However, our mechanics are trained to spot any damage and fix your air con.
Over time, your air con may stop working properly and when the system is turned on it might only be releasing warm air. If you ignore this, it could cost you more money in the future. If it’s left for too long your vehicle’s system may get damaged as it will have to work harder to power the air con and subsequently your engine too. This can result in more fuel being used than necessary which means you’ll be spending more money than you need to.
