Air conditioning

Servicing & re-gassing / recharging

 

As cars get more technologically advanced the methods employed to solve any issues also need to move with the times.

During servicing we can re-gas / recharge your air-conditioning units, as well as manufacture replacement pipes, reseal and treat where necessary.

The air conditioning system is used to create and maintain a comfortable driving environment inside a vehicle. It does this by transferring the heat from inside a vehicle to the outside keeping the temperature down inside the car. The air inside the car is cleaned, dried and cooled.

Some systems have manual temperature control but other more modern systems are becoming more & more complex with full climate control, these rely on a series of sensors to maintain the selected temperature.

Most air conditioning systems are not covered by manufacturers servicing schedules but the refrigerant gas that operates the system depletes over time. On average most vehicles lose up to 15% per annum more often when they are not used on a regular basis such as through winter, this causes the “O” ring seals to dry out resulting in a gradual deterioration in system performance eventually causing system not to operate at all.

Most problems can be rectified easily with a leak check and service followed by a complete refill of your air conditioning refrigerant, this is generally referred to as a re-gassing or recharging.  
If you notice any strange smells when you put your air-con on then this could be signs of bacteria build up on your system.   Some older systems or those that are not used regularly can start to produce a strange odour, this is caused by micro organisms or bacteria and sometimes even mould or fungi growing on the air conditioning evaporator, this can be overcome effectively with an anti-bacterial treatment that destroys the bacteria growth and leaves your car smelling fresh again.
