Air Conditioning Service
The air conditioning system in your BMW works hard all year round to maintain a comfortable temperature for you and your passengers, while filtering out pollen, dust and minimizing condensation. Continuous use actually helps to keep your air conditioning working more efficiently, but it should be maintained periodically as with any other vital component.
Taking action for cleaner air.
By passing air from outside through the micro-filter, your vehicle's air conditioning system removes 80% of the particles and deposits from traffic fumes. An evaporator assists in regulating the air temperature before it is circulated throughout your vehicle to ensure you're always sitting comfortably.
Continuous use of your air conditioning helps prevent the build-up of mold and microbes inside the micro-filter. It also stops seals from becoming brittle, which can cause the refrigerant to leak. However, to keep your system operating at peak efficiency and avoid musty smells, the micro-filters should be maintained at regular intervals and the correct level of refrigerant gas should be checked and replaced.
Air conditioning maintenance options.
BMW Victoria offers two levels of maintenance to ensure that your air conditioning remains in optimum condition. Choose a "Refresh" if there are musty odours when you first switch on the engine, or when you adjust your air conditioning or temperature settings. If your air conditioning takes too long to reach the temperature you want, or if it will not reach it at all, choose a "Recharge".
