Care and use of a cars air conditioning

We all take air conditioning for granted but this is a fairly complex system. The compressor will compress the gas then as this gas is pumped into the heat exchanger matrix and is allowed to expand it will take heat from the air running though the matrix. The gas though will often escape, albeit gradually over time, so you should have your air conditioning system checked and re-gassed at regular intervals. A typical air conditioning service will involve replacement of the pollen filters and a re-gas. Old gas needs to be disposed of in accordance with regulations so this is certainly a job for a specialist.
