Stay Cool! SWALE- Your Air-Conditioning Specialists
The Australian climate can be harsh, and air-conditioning is essential every time we hit the road. Seasonal changes, humidity, pollen, and dust all impact the efficiency of the air-conditioning in your vehicle. Regardless of whether you drive a light or heavy vehicle, the elements will wreak havoc on your air-conditioning if debris is allowed to build up in the system and is left unchecked.
The following issues indicate that your vehicle's air-conditioning system needs servicing:
Intermittent heating or cooling.
Smelly airflow or musty smelling interior.
Faulty air-conditioning system.
Your air-conditioning system requires the correct balance of refrigerant and lubricant for optimal functioning. Clean filters promote better airflow, eases pressure on the system and ultimately promotes better respiratory health. SWALE recommends regular scheduled servicing of your vehicle's air-conditioning system to prevent damage and ensure that you are breathing non-toxic, clean air.

Your Health Matters
Over time, allergens, temperature changes and humidity can cause mould and bacteria to build up in your vehicle’s air-conditioning system. In some cases, there may be an accompanying bad smell, but often the toxic air is odourless. Dirty air-conditioning systems that are left unchecked are a known cause of illness and respiratory problems that could cause long-term complications. Regular checks and servicing will ensure that your system is properly maintained, clean and hygienic.
