The air conditioning system in your vehicle may not be used every day of the year, but that doesn't mean you don't have to maintain it - not doing so can lead to a number of problems, from lingering bad smells to debilitating health issues. Here at Redgate Lodge in Newcastle Upon Tyne, Tyne & Wear, we can check your air conditioning system and make sure it's in prime condition, keeping you cool when you need it and eliminating any potential problems.
Why is maintenance necessary?
Even though you may not be using your air conditioning all the time, the system will still have condensation throughout it, and because of engine heat, mould can grow as well as many kinds of bacteria. All of that growing just inches from where you're sitting results in the risk of throat and other infections as well as bad odours in the vehicle. Additionally, the air conditioning filter needs to be cleaned regularly, otherwise it will become blocked and the system won't work properly.
It's important to know that over time, a lot of potentially harmful materials can enter a vehicle and pose real health risks. They include emissions from other vehicles while out on the road, harmful industrial dust and all kinds of fungal spores that can easily be breathed in. People suffering from asthma and allergies may find their symptoms getting worse. That's why it's highly advisable to check that the air conditioning's pollen filter is not blocked. If it is, installing a new one will ensure clean and healthy air.
