What are the benefits of TPMS?
There are many benefits of TPMS sensors for the owner and workshops! Therefore, it is essential to have one.
In addition, the EU states that the under-inflation of tyres accounts for 20 million litres of additional fuel consumed globally and 2 million tonnes of CO2 emissions. Due to this, the safety aspect of TPMS systems is paramount. In fact, according to road safety reports, incorrect tyre pressure in vehicles accounts for 9% of accidents, including fatalities and 41% of accidents involving injury. Therefore, having a TPMS sensor is beneficial to your safety of driving.
Benefits To The Owner
- Improved fuel efficiency
- Decreased tyre wear
- Improves driver safety
- Reduces breaking distance
- Lower CO2 emissions
- Improves vehicle handling
Due to the new legislation and MOT regulations, there will be a natural requirement to maintain, repair and service TPMS systems. Therefore, workshops need to be aware of the advantages of this new technology:
Benefits To Workshops
- The increased importance of specialised services
- Quick installation times
- Additional income from the service, fitting and maintenance of the systems
- It gives workshops and garages a competitive advantage
Therefore, investing in TPMS sensors and training mechanics on how to use them can be highly beneficial for workshops in the UK.
