If your car ventilation emits a nasty smell every time you turn on the air conditioning, or you are just not sure if the system is really doing its job, Vauxhall MasterFit Centres throughout the UK are ready with a problem solving springtime service.
Reliance on air conditioning affects almost everyone on the road today. More than 90 per cent of new cars are now sold with air conditioning or climate control, and most cars since the mid-nineties have had a pollen or carbon cabin filter as standard.
Condensation build up in the air conditioning evaporator during the cold winter months can become a breeding ground for bacteria and fungi, so the opportunity to have the system cleansed by trained technicians is a wise precaution.
Vauxhall MasterFit Centres are offering owners a two-tier service, starting with a Spring-Clean service to remove any bacteria that may have developed during the winter. This disinfecting process will also neutralise any odours to leave the passenger compartment a cleaner, fresher smelling environment.
The Spring-Clean decontamination and operational check of your air conditioning system costs around £30.
If a more comprehensive service is recommended, your Vauxhall MasterFit Centre can carry out the Spring-Clean service, followed by a full leak check to ensure that the air conditioning piping is not faulty, and then re-gas the air conditioning or climate control system. Just as your engine requires fresh oil from time to time to avoid wear and tear on its components, the same is true for the gas in your air conditioning system.
