Did you know your air conditioning loses charge every year, making it less efficient and making your car warmer? Our air conditioning services keep your air con working properly by checking and topping up the refrigerant levels. This also involves cleansing the air circulation system to maintain icy cold air output and get rid of any nasty odours – and the harmful bacteria that cause them.
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.
Vehicle air conditioning systems can lose refrigerant gas over time, especially if they aren’t used regularly, which means that they may not work as well as they 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.
Air conditioning doesn’t just provide in-car comfort during the hot summer months; it can also be used in winter to demist your windscreen. Air-con systems create dry warm air rather than the normal humid air from outside which can clear your windscreen much more quickly than your regular blowers.
Most manufacturers recommend that the air conditioning system is serviced every two years in order to replenish the liquids used by the system and to ensure all components are working correctly. Your car manual will give you the specific requirements for your car.
