When working properly your air conditioning system can also:
Offer a cooler, more comfortable drive.
Help to demist your windscreen in winter months.
Help to filter out pollen, pollutants and any bacteria entering your vehicle.
Greatly improve the quality of air you and your family breath.
Reduce the stress of being stuck in traffic jams in the heat!
Just like a vehicle service you should have your air conditioning system tested each year to ensure optimum performance and followed by an Air Conditioning service every 2 years.

What is a Pollen Filter? and why should you change it!
You change the air filter so your engine can breath clean air but do you ever change the filter that cleans the air your family breathes?
Your Vehicles pollen filter is the filter that stops you and your family breathing in bad pollutants from outside and also reduces outside smells.
Having a clean pollen filter not only improves the air quality but also helps improve the performance of your air conditioning system.
Below are some other reasons why you should change your pollen filter yearly:
- Improve Cabin Air quality that you and your family breath.
- Improve Health Issues like 'Asthma'.
- Reduce Bad smells in the vehicle and from your heating & A/C System.
- Reduce potential damage to your vehicles fans due to blockages.
