Air conditioning? Good for everyone!99% of all new vehicles are fitted with air conditioning. And rightly so, as air conditioning contributes to comfort, concentration and safety in all seasons.
In summer, air conditioning helps the driver keep a cool head and stay alert. In winter, air conditioning prevents an uncomfortably cold temperature and steamed-up windows. Air conditioning is therefore good for the driver’s performance and safety. And – just as importantly – that of the other road users!
The air conditioning also needs maintenance!
Some may say otherwise, but the air conditioning unit also requires routine maintenance. Insufficient maintenance can have expensive consequences. Moreover, failure is an insidious danger. It always comes at an awkward moment; for example when the air conditioning unit needs to cool down significantly at high temperatures. And just when the air conditioning is most needed. Therefore choose regular maintenance. Maintenance carried out by your ClimaTech Airco Specialist.
You won’t encounter any unexpected surprises.
The vulnerable components
An air conditioning unit operates thanks to a pump. A compressor transports coolant through the interior. This coolant transfers heat from the interior to outside.
A filter dryer with a fine granulate removes moisture and material residue from the liquid. Of all parts in the air conditioning system, the filter dryer is the most susceptible to maintenance. This needs to be replaced regularly.
The air conditioning unit is not a hermetically closed system. Just look at all the hoses. It is therefore inevitable that the system will lose coolant. If the level of coolant drops below the prescribed level, the compressor is not sufficiently lubricated. This will become warm and the air conditioning unit will break down. Regular top-ups of coolant is the only solution.

Better for the environment
Unfortunately, even the most modern
coolants are bad for the environment. On average, an air conditioning unit loses
86 grams of coolant (more than 8% of the total fill
quantity) per year.
This will increase now that the number of vehicles with air
conditioning is on the rise. There is only one way to prevent this impact on the
environment: efficient maintenance. By having your air
conditioning unit serviced by a Certified ClimaTech Airco Service Partner you
will contribute to a better environment.
Safe and comfortable
Driving in hot conditions means dangerous driving. A rise in interior temperature from 22ºC to 37ºC increases the risk of an accident by at least 30% due to a reduced ability to concentrate and react. Research shows that the temperature must not fall below 20ºC or exceed 26ºC. Relative humidity is best between 35% and 65%. People are most alert and relaxed under these conditions, which contributes to safety.
