A leak in your system can stop your air conditioner from working. And because it does not happen all of the sudden, it can be hard to notice or find the source of the leaking refrigerant in your engine bay. Don’t waste time with UV dye – let DVG investigate for you! If you feel a change in the air, such as slightly warmer air or air not blowing as hard, it is time for a service.

A blocked hose or filter issues can make you sweat!
If your car has a blocked hose, the water may not be making it at all to the air conditioner. Instead, it will start smelling funny and could create a little dampness in your interior carpets on the floor mats near your aircon vents. If so, your filter could be the problem. So watch out for wet carpets and if you are not sure how to check your hoses or filter, contact DVG for help!
Strange noises don’t happen to the most reliable cars!

So, Car News advises that if you hear compressor buzzing, belt squealing noises, knocking else clicking bolts, or any other high pitch tones from bearings, bring your car in to get your aircon components fixed!

Turn off the aircon!
Now that your car is in top shape and ready to keep you cool on the hottest days of summer, it is time to take care of it. Start by turning off your aircon before turning off your car. Aside from acclimatising yourself to the outside temperature, before you hop out, it could also increase your car’s battery life. And best of all, it will be the most fuel efficient car it’s ever been, by trying this tactic! Embrace efficiency.
Keep the window cracked
Don’t let your aircon overwork itself. Keep the window or sunroof cracked when your car is parked, if your security system is sound enough. This will cut back the heat built-up. And it will help your car stay cool all summer long. Aside from installing window tint, these tips may ensure your car aircon system is conserved, and your vehicle stays one of the most reliable cars this summer!
Let your car air out first
It is hard not to turn on the aircon, as soon as you get in the car, especially when the car has been standing in the sun for a while. However, try to roll down the window first for a few minutes, while you read Car News maybe? A decrease of even just a few degrees, can considerably help your air conditioning system and lessen the strain.
Get your aircon running!
Running your air conditioning for at least ten minutes every week is a great way to keep it going during the hot summer months. This routine maintenance will ensure that there is no moisture and mildew build-up in your top car! Avoid any dank odours by keeping the air in your car fresh and circulated.
