In our Queensland climate its common to use your cars Air con nearly everyday during Summer but did you know that when you leave your Air Con off over winter you can actually being doing damage to the system. Moist air in the pipes and vents lays stagnant until you turn it on again. Left for a long period mould and mildew grows. Your gas also freeze in the system and pipes can become brittle. Our recommendation is run your system for at least ten minutes once a week during the winter months to maintain optimum gas levels and keep the system lubricated and working properly. At Island Auto Repairs we can offer you a full Air Con service for as low as $165 which includes a dye in the system to find any leaks which may have occurred. A fantastic new product on the market is the Air Con deodorizer with built in mould killer. This is sprayed into your system and will get rid of any harmful spores which may have built up, a great idea if you have asthmatics traveling in the vehicle.
