There was a time when air conditioning in cars in the UK was seen as a bit of a pointless luxury. After all, the few hot summer days we get each year hardly warrant the ability to make the inside of your car as cold as a polar bear’s bedroom!

Yet, most cars are now fitted with it as standard. Why? Well, as well as cooling air, air conditioning dries the air too. This means that, as well as those six summer days, come winter, turning the air conditioning on warm will help demist your car much sooner than your conventional fan. Many air conditioning systems also contain air filtration systems that remove airborne particles such as pollution and pollen from entering your space. Additionally, in many vehicles using air conditioning at higher speeds is more efficient than opening a window for ventilation.

The benefits of air conditioning reach far beyond those few sunny days. However, the biggest mistake people make with air conditioning is that they seldom use it. Air conditioning systems rely on being used to circulate oil and gas which help keep rubber seals and pipes lubricated, avoiding leaks and ensuring the system runs properly. By not using your air conditioning, seals dry out, gas escapes and, when you do want to use your air conditioning, it doesn’t work properly!

At GS Carcare we are equipped to test and refill air conditioning systems to ensure that they work efficiently and cool you when you want to cool and clear your screen quickly when you want to get driving.
