Regularly replace the filter-drier in the air-conditioning system
Lippstadt, March 2010.
The Thermo Management experts Behr Hella Service provide the following advice: Every two years, the filter drier/. accumulator in the air-conditioning system should be replaced. Filter-driers/accumulators have a filter cushion which traps dirt particles from the air-conditioning system whilst removing moisture at the same time. The filter elements have limited absorption capacity and so need to be replaced regularly. A breakdown in the filter-drier reduces the refigration output and can even cause the entire air-conditioning unit to fail. For this reason, replacement of the filter-drier/accumulator should take place every two years when the entire air-conditioning system is inspected and the refrigerant is replaced. Regular maintenance performed by specialists opens up revenue potentials for the garage and keeps customers happy.
