Air Conditioning

Today, air conditioning in the car is part of the standard equipment. It not only ensures pleasant temperatures in the vehicle and mist free wind screens in summer and winter, but also ensures greater safety. Statistics show that the risk of an accident increases significantly as the interior temperature increases, as the driver's ability to concentrate is reduced by heat. It is therefore no wonder that the majority car buyers no longer want to do without an air conditioning system. What most drivers do not know though is that an air-conditioning system needs regular maintenance. We at Roberts Tyres in Sleaford have the specialist knowledge to help you to keep your car’s air condition in perfect working order, all-year round.

By neglecting the maintenance of the air conditioning system, you would be taking the risk of damage and very high repair costs.

Air conditioning is not maintenance-free

In order for the air conditioning system to function properly in the long term, regular maintenance is mandatory. The functions of the most important components, such as refrigerant compressors, condenser, evaporator and expansion valve, are tested during an Aircodition service. Hoses and gaskets can also age, dry out and start leaking. Manufacturers therefore advise an annual check of the air conditioning in a specialist workshop.

A good time for the climate service is in spring, before the coming warm summer time and before the air conditioning system has to start working on high performance.There are no long waiting times at our Roberts Tyres workshop so our experts can service your air condition quickly, preparing it for the up-coming hot days.Please do not go to just any garage to get your vehicle’s air condition checked. It is very important to visit a designated specialist workshop that has the necessary climate service equipment and tools as well as trained personnel. Incorrect maintenance can cause considerable damage, so only trained mechanics like ours at Roberts Tyres are allowed to work on an air conditioning system.

The air conditioning system is not automatically checked during each routine vehicle inspection. At the latest when the cooling performance subsides, the system should be checked for possible coolant losses. Even without leak, air-conditioning systems lose a certain amount of coolant over time, an average of about eight percent per year. This not only reduces the cooling capacity. Also, the probability of expensive consequential damage increases, because the refrigerant does not only provide for cooling. With the help of the added oil, it also lubricates the compressor and protects seals from drying out. If a new compressor is due, it could cost you more than £800 to get a new one fitted. An air condition service is relatively cheap compared to these expenses.

Protecting our environment

Another plus point of a regular climate service:Leaking coolant is detrimental to the environment. Regular maintenance is therefore also a measure for environmental protection, since leaks are discovered and eliminated.

Your health

In addition, your and your passenger’s health benefits from a germ free air conditioning system. -, as the air inside the vehicle gets cleared of bacteria-and fungi.On the other hand, air polluted with germs from the air conditioning system is not only making you tired, it can also irritate eyes and airways.
