Over two thirds of currently manufactured vehicles are now fitted with air conditioning systems and climate control systems as standard. Having Air Con fitted to your vehicle is beneficial not just for those warmer summer months when it cools you down, but also for those colder winter months when it creates dry warm air which demists your car windscreen far more effectively.
There are of course various problems that can occur with your vehicles Air Conditioning System, from the refrigerant gasses depleting (by approx 15% per year) to a faulty Air Con Pump. Regular servicing can alleviate some of these problems as we check for: dried out seals, bacteria forming and perished hoses as standard. Picking up these faults early can save bigger faults occurring, thus saving what could be a costly repair bill at a later date.
As well as servicing your system, we have the equipment to re-gas your air con. When you book in for a re-gas, we will also recommend that you add a special dye, so that if ever your system leaks, the dye will leave a yellow residue wherever the leak is allowing us to locate the problem quickly and efficiently, possibly saving you time and money on possible future labour bills.
AIR CONDITIONING MAINTENANCE
The air conditioning dye leaves a yellow residue wherever the leak is coming from, so us or any other garage with the proper equipment are able to locate the leak quickly and efficiently saving you money on labour locating leaks.
The air conditioning anti-bacterial clean is highly recommended as the air con system is breeding ground for harmful bacteria, micro-organisms, mould and fungi to grow. This generally causes a very unpleasant odour when turned on and can be a serious health concern, expecially for suffers of asthma and allergies. Once the smell is there it doesn’t dissapear you just acclimatise to it. This can cause what is known as Sick Car Syndrome and some of the symptoms are below:
Spraying air freshener is a quick fix solution and only masks over the problem for a short period of time. We recommend having our full air conditioning service which includes: Re-Gas, Dye & Anti-Bacterial Clean as this is the only way to eliminate the problem and ensure the system is running ice cold whilst knowing that if there is ever a leak you should have minimal investigation charges.
