Air Conditioning Systems

Today an increasing number of customers are specifying air conditioning systems and these can be readily and retrospectively fitted with little outward sign of such a system having been fitted.

Overview

Our upgrade package for the DB4, DB5 and DB6 combines the evaporator and heater matrix within a modified heater plenum chamber. Modern, much higher airflow, multi-speed blower motors are used to duct and discharge the air, be it cooled or heated. The outlet vents are usually discreetly fitted to the under dashboard trim panel or centre console.

Depending on the intended car destination, we are delighted to be able to specify the air con system of various sizes and capabilities that can be individually defined, specified and costed.

Air Con Systems can be specified for any car from the DB4 up to the V8, when they became standard equipment.

Air Conditioning Systems for Tropical Climates

Over the last 10 years, the Aston Workshop has gained a considerable amount of experience in providing Air Con systems fit for use in tropical and humid climates with ambient air temperatures that regularly exceed 40 deg Centigrade. Such tropicalised systems have been fitted to a wide range of cars including DB4s, DB5s,  DB6s and V8 models.

There are 3 major elements to tropical specification air con systems which differ from the standard. The first of these is the use of an upgraded air con compressor and a larger condenser, which is mounted in front of the main radiator behind the radiator grill.

The second main change is the addition of another evaporator with its own ventilation system. The second evaporator plenum chamber is situated underneath the shelf under the rear window or in the case of a convertible, underneath the hood stowage. In the case of the saloon cars, this brings about a need for a number of consequential changes, including the removal of the standard tank and its replacement with twin tanks situated behind the rear wheel arches as happens as per standard with the drophead coupes (Volante).

The third significant change is the fitment of a more capable ventilation system with provision for recirculation of the cabin air.

Experience has shown that they provide a comfortable environment in the hottest conditions likely to be encountered, and as has already been mentioned, they have been specified for a significant number of cars we have supplied for our customers in the Middle East, SE Asia and elsewhere.
