Common questions answered.
How often should my A/C be inspected?
Annual car air conditioning Inspection is sufficient to check system condition and overall performance. Also, a service of the car air conditioning system should be carried out at least every two years even if it appears to be working well. Statistics that you lose between 20-30% of the initial refrigerant charge over a two year period. Albion Auto, Bolton’s Air Conditioning Specialist, can provide a comprehensive list of all checks carried out and produce a report on the condition of the system.
DOES MY VEHICLE’S A/C SYSTEM USE MORE FUEL?
The answer to this is ‘yes’ it does, but not by much. You could have the windows open, but that would increase wind resistance which can add up to 10% to your fuel consumption, especially at speed. And don’t forget the extra noise and pollution through that open window. To keep the system lubricated, you should run your car air conditioning system at least once a week. Occasionally running the ac system is especially important in the winter. Without the occasional run time, the compressor can seize up, potentially costing you more in the future for repairs.
