Turned up to 10: A/C servicing becomes hot item as temperature soars

Published:  11 August, 2022

Last month’s heatwave led to a ten-fold increase in A/C re-gas booking being made at garages, and with temperatures set to hit 35° this weekend, BookMyGarage.com is urging workshops to be prepared for another rush.

Karen Rotberg, Co-founder of BookMyGarage.com, said: “Air conditioning systems are put under the most strain at high temperatures, and it’s not uncommon for motorists to find their air conditioning stops functioning altogether at the time they need it most.

“That’s why we recommend regular air conditioning servicing – at least once every two years as a general rule – to ensure the system can work as efficiently as possible and to avoid the risk of being caught out when temperatures soar.”

She added: “We also strongly advise motorists to keep on top of other vehicle servicing and maintenance, especially for anyone planning a long journey during the summer holidays. Breaking down during a heatwave can be dangerous, especially for families travelling with pets, small children or elderly relatives.”
