BMW 6 Series Air intake OEM and Aftermarket
There is simply nothing much worse than climbing into a superbly hot car in the middle of summer! On any automobile, the air conditioning is a complicated feature and the BMW 6 series air intake is not exempted. Air conditioning systems in an automobile work using the theory of thermodynamics, whereby heat flows from a warmer surface to a colder one. Heat from inside the car is transferred to the cold metal fins of the evaporator. The refrigerant in the system picks up the heat from the evaporator and takes it to the compressor. The gas is thereafter pressurized, which concentrates the heat by raising the temperature of the refrigerant gas. Thereafter, the gas is sent to the condenser which cools the refrigerant and turns the gas back into liquid form.
What can one do to protect and maintain the BMW 6 series air intake from deterioration? Firstly, one need to operate the air conditioning system at least once a week if the temperatures outside is above 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Doing this will circulate the refrigerant in the system and help keep the seals from drying out. Most blunders are caused by refrigerant leaking out of the system and which can be prevented by simply making sure that one runs with the system more frequently. A belt that runs off the main crankshaft operates the BMW 6 series air intake compressor. The original Freon was used in the older – style R12 air conditioned cars. Early in 1990’s, automobile manufacturers started phasing out Freon based air intake systems and started implementing the newer R134a systems. The cost of replacement of the R12 Freon is shooting up as the current suppliers disappear.
The BMW 6 series air intake system works diligently all year round to maintain a comfortable temperature for both the driver and the passengers, while filtering out pollen and dust and minimizing condensation. Continuous use actually helps to keep the air conditioning working more efficiently and should be maintained periodically as with any other vital component. The BMW’s air conditioning system removes 80% of the particles and deposits from traffic fumes by passing air from outside through the micro-filter. An evaporator assists in regulating the air temperature before it’s circulated throughout your vehicle to ensure one is always sitting comfortably.
The continuous use of the BMW 6 series air intake system helps prevent the build- up of mould and microbes inside the micro-filter. This also helps in stopping the seals from becoming brittle, which can cause the refrigeration to leak. Nonetheless, to keep the system operating at peak efficiency and avoid musty smells, the micro-filters should be maintained at regular intervals and the correct level of refrigerant gas checked and replaced. Our local BMW service authorized workshop offers two levels of support maintenance to ensure that your air conditioning remains in tiptop condition. If there are musty smells, choose a refresh when you first switch on the engine, or when you adjust the air conditioning or temperature settings. If the air conditioning takes too long to reach the temperature wanted, choose a recharge.
