Air Conditioning

An Air Conditioning service keeps your air con working properly by checking and topping up the refrigerant levels.This also involves cleansing the air circulation system to maintain icy cold air output and gets rid of any nasty odours and harmful bacteria that causes them.

When do I Service my Air Conditioning?

Most manufactures recommend servicing your vehicles Air Conditioning system every 2 years to keep your vehicles Air Conditioning in top condition

Will Servicing make my Air Conditioning work?

Unfortunately this is not always the case, If your Air Con is still working but not as cold as it used to be then a Service is probably the answer as the gas may just need topping up to required level.

When a vehicles Air Con completely stops working then this normally means there is no gas left in the system due to a leak

Is there more than one type of Air Conditioning Gas?

There are 2 types of Air Con gas available presently

1. R134a which is found in most vehicles up to 2014

2. HFO - 1234YF is now fitted in all vehicles after 2014

There is a big difference in price between the 2 gases which is why the cost at present to service a modern vehicle is far more expensive
