Keeping your car cool in the heart of Hamworthy
Why is an air conditioning service important?
Air conditioning services are like MOT tests but specifically for air cons - they ensure that everything in the system is running okay and that enough cool air is being produced. It’s recommended that you should get your vehicle's air con checked every two years to keep it in the best possible condition.
Air cons are generally not used for at least half of the year during the colder months as it's not necessary. During this time, it's thought that 20% of the vital refrigerant gas and lubricant will escape through the vents, resulting in your air con not working properly. However, our mechanics are trained to spot any damage and fix your air con.
Warning signs that your air con needs to be tested
Over time, your air con may stop working properly and when the system is turned on it might only be releasing warm air. If you ignore this, it could cost you more money in the future. If it's left for too long your vehicle's system may get damaged as it will have to work harder to power the air con and subsequently your engine too. This can result in more fuel being used than necessary which means you'll be spending more money than you need to.
