AIR CON 2

The air conditioning lines condense cold air (works like a radiator), acts as a filter, pump liquid gas through the system, create cold air intake through air vents and transport gas to each system

Compressor
The compressor is the heart of an air conditioning system. It takes refrigerant as a low pressure gas, pumps it up to a high pressure gas, and circulates it into the discharge hose. Compressors are much like little engines. Most of them have pistons, piston rings, a crank shaft, and bearings, just like a car engine. They need to have oil circulated through them to lubricate all the moving parts. This oil is mixed into and carried with the refrigerant. That is why running an air conditioner without any refrigerant is like running your cars engine without any oil. We have parts to fit all makes and models.

1. What are the benefits of air conditioning?
Efficient cool air in summer!
Warm dehumidified air in winter easily demists steamed up windows!
Filters pollutants / airborne particles inc pollen helping allergy sufferers!
Pleasant and odour free vehicle atmosphere at all times.

2. What causes the smell in my A/C system?

The origin of the smell is caused by fungus, bacteria and other microbes growing inside the evaporator core. The moisture-laden environment is very conducive to the growth of these organisms. As automakers downsize components to save space and weight, this problem has been increased. Because the automakers made the evaporator smaller, they added more fins and packed them closer together to increase the efficiency of the evaporator. While this has made the evaporator more efficient, it has also made it more prone to trap moisture that contributes to the growth of these organisms. We offer a full odour removal service using the latest research, tools and equipment. Contact us to find out more.

3. Does A/C use more petrol?

The answer to this is Ďyesí it does, but not by much. But then think of the alternatives. 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 donít forget the extra noise and pollution through that open window. Also, itís worth pointing out that you should run your air conditioning at least once a week, especially in winter as the seals can seize up through non use potentially costing you more in future in new parts and repair!!!
