Benefits Of An Air Conditioning Recharge
Your Air Conditioning Deteriorates Every Year
Every year your cars air conditioning gases are slowly seeping away with around 10% of the gas that helps keep your car cool throughout the summer lost, this dissipation of the gases means that your cars air conditioning system is loosing its efficiency and effectiveness to combat heat.
Most vehicle manufacturing companies such as Ford, Vauxhall & BMW etc have a standard recommendation when it comes to the recharge of the gas and lubricant that keeps your aircon system working to its optimum, their suggested refill period is a minimum of every two years.

Your cars air conditioning system is an extremely clever and simple system, it pulls in air from outside the vehicle and then forces it through your air con filter, this removes any moisture and dirt / dust particles giving you clean air to breath.
Having a fully functioning air conditioning system also helps clear your windscreen quicker when using in combination with heat, an air con system with a reduced gases means that it is not functioning properly and potentially pulling damper air into the vehicle, this means a cooler flow to the glass and slow de-mist action.
