What is Air Conditioning Servicing and Why Do You Need It?
Most modern cars have an air conditioning unit fitted as standard. However, not all car owners realise they need to get their air con serviced regularly. Without this, your air conditioning won’t work effectively and your car won’t be as comfortable during warm weather. In this post, we’ll show you why it’s so important to get your air conditioning serviced in Shrewsbury.
Why is My Car Air Conditioner Not Blowing Cold Air?
If your air conditioning has suddenly stopped blowing cold air, there are five common faults.
If your air con will only blow out warm air, it’s likely you need to top up the refrigerant gas or book an air conditioning recharge – both of which we can take care of here in the garage.
If you have a weak airflow but it is still cold, this likely means there is a leak in the system and you’ll need to get it repaired. Again, we can find the leak and repair it for you quickly.
If you hear a rattling when you turn on the blowers, this is a sign of a women-out condenser or fan belt and will need a further inspection to find the cause.
If there’s a bad smell coming from your air con vents, the system needs to be disinfected. Bacteria can build up in the vents along with dust and debris that causes that nasty smell.
If you’re noticing condensation in the car when the system is on, there’s probably a blockage somewhere that can quickly lead to damp.
Luckily, all of these problems can be diagnosed and rectified here at French Cars Shrewsbury Ltd.

Why Should I Book a Car Air-Conditioning Service?
There are a couple key reasons you should book an air conditioning service. One of the most important being it will save you money on costly repairs. On top of that, it can save you money on fuel – when your air con isn’t working optimally, it takes more energy to run and thus uses more fuel.
And, of course, having air con working as it should makes your car much more pleasant to drive, especially in the warm weather.
