Perrys Portsmouth advises on air conditioning for summer

A modern car’s air-conditioning system works hard all year to maintain a comfortable temperature for drivers and passengers, while filtering out pollen and dust and minimising condensation. Like other systems in the car, it should be maintained periodically.

"Mazda’s air-conditioning inspection is designed to spot any faults in the system before they affect its performance or cause potentially costly damage – and to ensure cool and comfortable summer driving," explains General Manager, Bob Wright.

"There are many sound reasons for checking a system that we all take for granted. Drivers who do not use their car’s air-con as much in the winter encourage the generation of condensation on the pipes which can create a breeding ground for bacteria.

“This can cause unpleasant odours and even result in sore throats, sneezing and irritated eyes. Also, every year approximately 15 percent of the air-con gas escapes naturally, gradually reducing the efficiency of the system," adds Bob.

For just £79.95 specially trained Mazda technicians will carry out the air-conditioning inspection which includes: visual check of all system components, recharging to recommended levels, adding fresh oil to system as necessary, and cleaning the system to clear any bacterial build up and remove any unpleasant smells.

To ensure customers have a complete maintenance record for their vehicle, the air-conditioning Inspection will be entered into Mazda’s Digital Service Record.

Every customer bringing a Mazda in for an Air-conditioning Inspection will also receive a free Mazda air-freshener and bottle of Mazda Summer Screen wash.
