If your MINI has air conditioning, you may want to consider having it serviced. Air conditioning is often the most neglected piece of equipment in the car, only being serviced when something has gone wrong, where repairs can vary from simple and inexpensive to quite major and costly. However, it is easier to avoid the bigger problems by ensuring your air conditioning is used regularly and maintained annually by Dick Lovett MINI.
Air conditioning systems require both a refrigerant (gas based coolant) and some lubrication. Without this or if levels get low, the system becomes inefficient and excess strain can cause certain components or seals to fail. At Dick Lovett MINI we offer full air conditioning services or just simple re-gassing. It is not expensive and not only will you help avoid the major bills that go with air conditioning failures but you will also have a pleasant temperature in your car when you really need it.
Add an air freshener – to remove any unwanted musty smells by cleaning the evaporator, disinfecting the air duct system and treating the air vents in your MINI's interior.
Give it an Arctic blast – to ensure the air conditioning gauge gives you the temperature you want and when you want it. This is done by draining the refrigerant, checking for leaks and operating pressures and then recharging the refrigerant and lubricant.
Don't forget, air conditioning is not just for the summer, as you can also use your air conditioning to demist your MINI in winter. There is also a chance that if your windows are difficult to clear in the winter, it's highly likely your air conditioning is not working as efficiently as it could be.
