Car air conditioning - does it increase fuel use?

Prompt Auto Repairs (AU33713) are the best mechanics to handle all your Vehicle Air Conditioning Regas, Repair, Inspection and Servicing needs in Coconut Grove and the surrounding areas.

Modern vehicles are complex and just like the engine your vehicle's air conditioner system has elements that need to be serviced or replaced on a regular basis to ensure continued reliable and efficient operation. Regular checking and servicing of your car air conditioner can help ensure it is functioning correctly and is not increasing the amount of fuel you would otherwise use.

If refrigerant starts to leak or evaporate your air con system will begin to deteriorate and will have to work harder, with a resulting increase in fuel usage. Therefore it is important to regularly assess the condition of the rubber seals for any signs of leaks or problems which may point to a loss of refrigerant.

Getting your car's air conditioning serviced once a year means you may help prevent costly breakdowns now and in the future, keep passengers safe by helping to prevent the build-up of potentially harmful substances and a well serviced automotive air conditioner actually saves you money because it consumes less fuel.

Prompt Auto Repairs care about the environment and have Arctick Authorisation (AU33713) to reliably and responsibly conduct car air conditioner regas, repair, inspection and servicing.
