AIR CONDITIONING MAINTENANCE
Over two thirds of all vehicles manufactured today come with air conditioning and climate control systems as standard.
Many drivers experience the benefits of air con in their car or van on a hot day but just like other parts of your car, the air-conditioning system also needs regular attention to ensure it continues to work efficiently and effectively.
You may not be aware that over 10% of air-con gas permeates from the air-con system every year, which means that it may not work as well as it should. This is why car manufacturers recommend your air-con system is recharged with gas and lubricant every 2 years. This service is not part of routine vehicle servicing, so if your vehicle is more than 2 years old it’s probably due an air-con recharge.
Our Air Conditioning Service Includes:
- A vacuum test is performed to ensure there are no cracks or damage in your air-conditioning system that could cause the gas to leak out.
- Removing any old refrigerant gas and oil from your air-con system before replacing this with the correct amount of new refrigerant and lubricant as per your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation
The whole process takes an hour and the recharge process is completed. You will once again have refreshing cool air on demand. The process can also include a system de-bug to clear bacterial build up from within the system, which will remove any unpleasant odours.
