Did you know that your car will lose up to 20% of its air con gas each year!

Did you know that you should use your cars air con even in the winter!

Air con can be used with warm air to demist your windscreen, very efficient and the air is dry.

If you only use your air con on a warm day do you know that the amount of bacteria that grow in the ducts and vents when you haven’t used the air con for a while?Including: Mould, Fungi, bad smells all of which you breath the spoors in when you first turn the air con on.

This can include harmful bacteria which irritates allergies including asthma and in the worst case carry legionnaires disease.

Effectively, it is the automotive equivalent of sick building syndrome.

Have you noticed musty or foul odours upon entering your car or switching on the heating or air-conditioning?

Or, have you suffered from sore throats, flu-like symptoms or allergic reactions?

If so, this could be caused by the year round build up of germs, bacteria, mould, spores and fungi within your air-conditioning/ventilation system.

During summer or winter your vehicle’s air-conditioning and heating system will generate condensation.

This environment provides an ideal breeding ground for germs, bacteria, spores, mould and fungi.
So whether you’re cooling in summer or heating in winter, contaminated particles will be blown into the vehicle passenger compartment.

Effectively, it is the automotive equivalent of sick building syndrome.

The latest scientific research shows that bacteria and germs breeding in your car could be undermining your health.

The nose often picks up what the eye doesn’t see. Ask any motorist who has chugged through the low-lying ozone that gift-wraps urban jams, often given extra intensity by a stiflingly strong sun.

Traffic pollution is a mostly invisible enemy to which your nose, throat and lungs are most sensitive. Little wonder, then, that most cars come with air conditioning, either as a standard feature or a good value option to counteract the effects of this invisible assault on your senses.

Yet recent scientific studies carried out in America reveal a more worrying hazard.
Those very air conditioning systems, designed to keep the driving environment cool and clear, act like a Trojan horse.

For the alarming truth is that, among your car’s insulation material and within the deep recesses of its air conditioning system, lies a hidden enemy: a colony of microscopic bacteria breeding and assaulting your senses with airborne particles.
Thousands of motorists suffer the symptoms each day. In worst cases, the effects of the bacteria aggravate allergic reactions, causing runny noses, sore throats and asthma-like symptoms.

Effectively, it is the automotive equivalent of sick building syndrome.

The bacteria, along with mould and fungi, flourish in the build-up of condensation produced by a car’s air conditioning system.

That means more motorists than ever are at risk, as the number of new cars in the UK fitted with air conditioning reaches record levels of almost 750 000 per year.
Air conditioning can counteract urban pollution seeping into a car’s interior, but that could make matters worse.

The findings arose from research into unexplained odours in vehicles, which are often put down to something in the carpet and upholstery or perhaps the family dog.

The AA has been conducting its own investigation and their Head of Technical Policy John Stubbs, has said that:
