The job of the air conditioning system in your car is to cool and remove humidity from the air before it enters your car. The system is basically made up of a compressor, a condenser and an evaporator, with a few sensors here and there. It also contains a filter which blocks dust, pollen, sand and mites to ensure a constant flow of fresh, cool air to the cabin of the car.
What can go wrong with your air conditioning system?
When people turn off their air conditioning system during the cold winter months, this can lead to condensation forming in the pipes. This, combined with the constant heat from the car’s engine provides the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and mould to grow. Apart from the nasty smell that this results in, the bacteria can cause all sorts of coughs and infections, and the mould spores can sometimes lead to allergic reactions. In addition to this, the poor air circulation can lead to windows misting up when it comes round to the next winter.
What can you do?
It is important to remember that while your air conditioning system is low maintenance, it is not maintenance free. You must remember to have your system checked regularly by a trained technician to ensure that your system is working to its optimum efficiency, keeping you cool when it’s hot and your windows mist free when it’s cold.
