Keep the aircon working -
It's important to keep the seals of your car air conditioning

the car aircon for a minimum of five minutes every month,
especially during winter. The regular working of your car
air conditioning system ensures that all the seals
remain adequately lubricated.

intervals. This will prevent your car from overheating and
you will save on unnecessary expenses.

system actually works. Before you take your car for
servicing, educate yourself about specific problems. Learn
about the various problems that can plague your car
air conditioning system beforehand, so you will not
be in for a huge shock when you see the repair bills!
Your car air conditioning system has four components
Compressor: The compressor
is driven by the engine's drive belt. The compressor is mainly
responsible to compress and pressurize the cool gas, which
is the first step towards conditioning the air for your car
air conditioning system .
Condenser: The condenser utilizes
the airflow from the engine fan and converts gas from the
compressor to liquid state. It is located in the front of
Expansion Device: The high-pressure
liquid gas leaves the condenser dry and pressure is reduced
some more, thus cooling the liquid.
Evaporator: This cool liquid
is passed through the evaporator and mixes with warm air
upon release. Upon coming in contact with warm air, the liquid
evaporates and cold, clean air is blown into the ambient
car via the aircon vents.
Now that you are aware of how your car air conditioning
system works, you will be better prepared to understand the
nature of problems that might affect the smooth functioning
of this system.
Servicing your car air conditioning system is an integral
part of keeping not just the aircon system in good health,
but also ensuring that you do not have to spend the summer
sweating and fuming! Not to mention that by getting your
car air conditioning system regularly serviced you are safe
in the knowledge that the system works with peak efficiency.
Steve Magill, the managing director of LVV Services Ltd.
