Air Conditioning Service

Why does your air conditioning need servicing?

  • ​To allow coolant to circulate through the system. If  you don't use your air con regularly, the lubricant within your coolant won't act on the rubber parts, which leads to leaky seals. This can result in more frequent re-gasses or the need to have all your seals changed.
  • To prevent moisture build up within the air vent ducts. This causes mould and bacteria to form, which are then blown into the car when you start the system again come spring.
  • To dry the air in your car to aid visibility. Air conditioning doesn't just cool the air - it dries it too. This helps maintain visibility by clearing mist and helping keep your windscreen and windows clear if the car is steaming up.

Over the course of the year air conditioning systems can lose up to 10% of their gas and cease to perform at their optimum capacity. Cooling becomes less efficient and the air can begin to smell a little stale and tainted.

To prevent this happening you need to regularly re-gas your air conditioning system. With prices starting from just £50, depending on the make and model of your car, it certainly won’t break the bank, but it will make driving your car a more pleasurable experience.

What does an air conditioning service involve?

Our trained technicians will service your air conditioning system using the latest equipment and technology:

  • ​De-gas and vacuum air conditioning system
  • Pressure test system for leaks
  • Ultra violet dye and air conditioning oil added to system to maintain operating efficiency
  • Re-gas system to its required level
  • Anti-bacterial system clean
  • Final system checks

We recommend servicing your air conditioning system every two years. During an air conditioning service we'll drain and recharge the system, check hoses, filters, belts and connections, and make sure the compressor and condenser are working correctly. This will also help maintain the mechanical integrity of the system. We will also give your air conditioning an ultrasonic anti-bacterial and odour treatment, that eliminates microbial, fungal and bacterial contamination.
