It’s important to have your air conditioning serviced. Not only to keep it in good working order but also, bacteria can grow inside your ventilation system which can make you poorly. Servicing at a reputable garage includes an antibacterial treatment to eliminate these germs.
Your car should be in tip-top condition at all times, but it is especially important to make sure your car is serviced through the summer months as the hotter temperatures place higher demands on the engine cooling system.
