In South Africa a properly working air conditioner is vital to keeping your car comfortable all year round. Regular car services will check for obvious faults which may be associated with the air conditioning system, like drive belt tension, visible signs of refrigerant leaks and loose or faulty compressor or equipment mounting brackets, however it iss best practice to have a comprehensive air conditioning service regularly. To make sure all the filters and compressors are working correctly.
