Air conditioning does a lot more than simply cool you down in summer. It also removes moisture from the air helping demist your windscreen in cold, wet weather and therefore improves driving visibility. As a result, ŠKODA recommends regular use of your car's air conditioning all year round.
Our air conditioning service includes checking the pollen filter and seals, decontamination to reduce bacteria and pollutants from your system, function checks, component checks and even a change of refrigerant and lubrication oil.
If you are experiencing any nasty smells, it could be because your car’s air conditioning system needs cleaning. Over a period of time the condensation that settles in your car’s air conditioning system mixes with dirt, dust and other airborne pollutants. If left untreated this becomes a breeding ground for micro organisms often resulting in an unpleasant odour and sometimes cold-like, or allergy-like symptoms.
How can ŠKODA help?
Motorline ŠKODA in Canterbury, Dartford and Medway use a ŠKODA approved disinfectant treatment which gets to the root of the problem. The treatment disinfects the system and leaves your car bug free and smelling as fresh as a daisy. The treatment is quick and is available at very competitive prices. It is water based, non-toxic, non-irritating and non-flammable and when the application is complete the car is left completely dry and ready for immediate use (other treatments often require ventilation time).
What else should I be doing?
Just like any other component on your car, your ŠKODA’s air conditioning needs regular maintenance. ŠKODA UK recommends an air conditioning re-gas service every two years to:
Maintain the system’s cooling performance
Optimise fuel consumption
Help prevent costly repairs
Please call your local Motorline ŠKODA Service Centre to book in for an air conditioning service.
