Air conditioning is a great way of keeping you and your passengers cool during the summer and your vehicle moisture free in the winter, if your air-con isn’t working at 100% or not working at all then it may be time for a re-gas.
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 be working as well as it should be. This is why car manufacturers recommend your air-con system is recharged with gas and lubricant every 2 years, this will keep it working at its maximum performance and will also help to avoid premature wear or even failure of expensive components such as the air-con compressors due to a lack of lubrication.
Our air-con service includes a refrigerant re-gas and also replacement of the lubricating oil, plus a comprehensive system check.
Recharging normally only take around 20 minutes so it can be done while you wait, We can also include a system de-bug to clear bacterial build up from within the system, which will also remove any unpleasant odors.
If we cannot recharge your vehicles air-con system due to it having a major leak or a leak bigger enough to be detected by the vacuum leak check on our Bosch ACS 650 then we will not charge you for this service, minor leaks however will require diagnostic time to identify. Due to the nature of air-con systems minor leaks may not be evident straight away and will need to have the new gas in the system with the special U.V leak detection dye for some time, in these cases the original charge will still stand as this will part of the diagnosing process into finding and eventually fixing the fault in your system,
We are also fully certified to carry out any major repairs on air-con systems and we will be able to give you a very competitive quote on any remedial work.
