Your vehicle may be fitted with Air Conditioning which cleans, dries and cools the air in the vehicle, giving you a comfortable driving environment.

In the summer months, having a cool car makes for a better driving experience and using your air-con is less expensive in terms of fuel usage than having your window open. In the winter your air-con will help you de-mist and de-humidify the car more quickly.

Every year your air conditioning system loses a proportion of the refrigerant used to keep the air cool therefore it is important to top up your air conditioning system to ensure it is working to it’s best ability.

Please call us today to book in for the following services:

  • Air conditioning clean
  • Recharge Air Con re-gas
  • Clean & Recharge

Air Conditioning Re-Gas*

It is recommended that you should recharge your air conditioning system every 2 years with gas and lubricant, in order to keep it running efficiently. This is not included as part of a routine car service and so it can often be overlooked. If your car is more than 2 years old it is more than likely due a recharge.

Our Re-Gas service ensures that your air conditioning system is working efficiently by testing the gas pressure to see if it has dropped. A drop in gas pressure will result in a loss of cooling efficiency, which will make your engine work harder and in turn use more fuel.

Due to its dehumidifying properties, when operating fully efficiently, your air conditioning system will also de-mist your windscreen more rapidly in cold weather. Our fully trained technicians will take a temperature reading from your air conditioning system; remove all the old refrigerant gas, oil and dye. They then clean the whole system and remove any moisture within. Once the system has been thoroughly cleansed our technicians will inject new oil, dye and refrigerant gas and take a temperature reading again to ensure that the Re-Gas has made a difference to the cold air temperature. This process will ensure that your air conditioning system is working to its full potential. If, however our technicians find that the Re-Gas has had no impact on the air conditioning temperature then you will not be charged for this service.

Air Conditioning Clean

The Air Conditioning Clean service removes all the harmful bacteria that can build up within the air conditioning system. By circulating a special cleaner through all air intakes and venting systems this service removes any unpleasant smells, leaving your car interior smelling clean and fresh. We recommend that this service is carried out once a year in order to keep your air conditioning system as clean as possible.
