More than 90% of new cars sold this year had air conditioning systems fitted as standard.
The system cools the passenger cabin during warm weather and assists the demister in
winter by removing excess moisture in damp conditions.

My car smells? This is a fairly common complaint.

What causes it?
It is principally caused by the growth of bacteria on the AC evaporator and in the remains of
any water (condensate) can lead to micro organisms and even mould or fungi growing on the
evaporator, this can lead to some very unpleasant odours.
Some even claim this can result in headaches and flu like symptom sometimes referred to as
sick car syndrome.

Q: How often should the vehicles conditioning system be serviced?

A: Annually. As part of a vehicle's annual service routine, its air conditioning system should be
inspected. This annual check should include a check of refrigerant quantity, pressure and temperature,
checking refrigerant hoses, drive belts and changing pollen filters.
Please note that this can be an additional cost to the vehicle’s ‘annual’ service.
Vehicle A/C systems will tend to lose refrigerant over time as refrigerant permeates through
the physical joins between components. Over time this will cause deterioration in performance.
Worse still, if you leave A/C operating with low refrigerant levels more serious problems can
occur, lubricant circulation may be affected and air or moisture may enter the system.
Most problems can be put right fairly easily here at City Electro Diesel services we can make
a check of your system followed by a complete refill of your refrigerant.

If the signs are ignored the consequences could include:
Poorer fuel economy as the compressor remains engaged to attain lower temperatures.
Internal corrosion caused by air or moisture reacting with refrigerant.
Component or even system failure.
