Antifreeze, as the term suggests, is a chemical compound which increases the freezing temperature of the water in your car’s cooling system. Also, many of the latest antifreeze formulas perform a number of maintenance tasks such as reducing rust within your vehicle’s radiator which improves its overall performance. However, as a vehicle owner, it is important to understand that you’ll only need to add antifreeze if you’re residing in a part of the UK where the temperature plummets to below freezing point i.e. 0 degrees centigrade.
Antifreeze is usually available in liquid form and can be added to the car’s cooling system by just adding it to the radiator. However, before you add antifreeze if you’re using coolant in the cooling system you may not need to use antifreeze because many high-quality coolant brands already have antifreeze mixed in. You also need to make sure that if your car is using water, that the water is clean and fresh. Since antifreeze raises the boiling point of the engine coolant, it also prevents overheating. The antifreeze also prevents corrosion, heat transfer and the buildup of scale.
