The Luxury Care experts will be pleased to service your air conditioning system to ensure a constant pleasant temperature in the passenger compartment and to keep out pollen and unpleasant odors.
Air conditioning has become a standard feature in most modern cars and needs regular maintenance to ensure a long service life. In addition to the loss of coolant, bacteria and fungus may also build up and eventually cause unpleasant odors if the air conditioning system is not cleaned properly. What's more, the dryer has to be replaced after two years at the latest. The experts at Luxury Care workshops can be relied upon for professional maintenance of the air conditioning system and will check the heater at the same time. So you can always enjoy just the right temperature in the car – whether it is freezing cold or boiling hot outside.
Air conditioning system odors are caused by bacteria and fungus. Switching off the system five minutes before the end of a journey helps to stop these forming. As no more air is being drawn in, it is hardly possible for moisture to remain in the system. But the best solution is provided by our AC cleaning service to thoroughly eradicate all bacteria and dirt. Advantage: No unpleasant odors and guaranteed optimum cleaning of the outside air – which is particularly important to anyone suffering from allergies.
Vehicles with an air conditioning system should be checked at least once a year at a specialist workshop. Not least because the system loses up to 8% of its refrigerant every year. It is also important to check the condition of the most important wearing part – the dryer. This is responsible for extracting moisture from the circulating refrigerant and reducing mechanical wear. Like the engine oil filter, it only has a limited service life. The best time for AC service at one of our workshops is early spring, before it gets too hot and pollen starts to affect allergy-sufferers.
We recommend using your car's air conditioning system all year round. It is best to run the system for at least 10 minutes every month to keep the seals lubricated and so prevent leakage. Regular operation also stops unpleasant odors developing as a result of moisture forming in the filter or due to the build-up of bacteria.
