Special Offer – Aircon Service and Regas for £45 +VAT
It is a common myth that air conditioning system should only be used through the summer months. Did you know that cool dry air will clear your windscreen far quicker than warm air? You should use your air conditioning regularly through the winter months to ensure that when you need it most on a summer’s day, the system functions correctly!
Around 10% of the refrigerant is lost from your air conditioning system each year. This loss of charge will cause the system to work harder, using more fuel to attain the same level of performance.
Although not on the standard Mercedes Service schedule, just like any other vital component on your Mercedes Benz; your air conditioning system requires regular maintenance (typically every 2 years) to keep it running as it should.
As well as refrigerant loss, over time condensation builds up on the evaporator and becomes a breeding ground for bacteria, leading to a musky unpleasant odour Some medical conditions can be caused by unserviced air conditioning systems including:
- Running nose
- Itchy and/or watery eyes
- Flu like symptoms.
To prevent the growth of bacteria ensure to use your air conditioning weekly for at least 10 minutes, run the defrost setting after long periods of use and most importantly having the system serviced regularly.
