Over the last few years air conditioning has become a familiar feature on many types of vehicles. Today nearly all medium and large cars have air conditioning as standard equipment and it is becoming increasingly popular on many other types of commercial vehicles. Many people used to believe that air conditioning was only required in tropical, or at least Mediterranean climates. This is no longer the belief as more and more people realise the benefits of air conditioning vehicles here in the UK.
Whether our summers are actually getting warmer or not is open to debate, but what is certain is that today's congested roads and lifestyle means that people are spending much more time in vehicles. Air conditioning not only reduces the general temperature on extremely hot days, but also makes the general environment within the vehicle much more comfortable, even on average days.
On a sunny spring or autumn day where the outside temperature is only 15 degrees, the interior temperature can reach over 30 degrees. In addition, air conditioning can reduce uncomfortable levels of humidity and pollution within the vehicle.
