Hover over the questions below to see the answer.

How often should I have my air conditioning serviced?

Ideally, every 2 years. However it could be checked as frequent as necessary.

How often should I run the air conditioning in my car?

Ideally, all the time. It is false economy to turn the system off in the winter. This can lead to deterioration of the seals and gaskets in your system and, even more rapid refrigerant loss. On the coldest of days turn the system on to ensure that the windows are demisted and the interior of the car is comfortable. Contrary to popular belief this does not greatly reduce your mpg. It is only on the hottest of days when the system is working the hardest does you’re air-conditioning noticeably effect fuel consumption.

When I switch my air conditioning system on I get an unpleasant damp smell which eventually clears, what causes it and how do I get rid of it?

The smell is the result of bacteria/algae breeding in the condensation that collects in the system. The by-products produced by the bacteria are what cause the unpleasant odours and often cause allergic reactions, coughs, sneezes and sore throats. We use a deodorising treatment to remedy this.

How long does it take to service the air conditioning system on an average car?

A straightforward service where there are no faults to rectify will take about one hour. If a fault is found we will advise our customer of cost of repair before any repair is carried out.

What’s involved in a service?

We measure the pressures in the system, check the quality of refrigerant present to make sure that it is not contaminated and check all functions. Then we recover the contents of the system separating the refrigerant and oil. The process involves subjecting the entire system to a near vacuum which causes any moisture in the system to actually boil away. We then re-charge the system with the required weight of refrigerate (Re-Gas) and replenish the lubricant. We also install a UV indicator that will show up any future leaks under ultra violet light.
