Car Air Conditioning service.
Just like all the other parts of your car, a vehicles air conditioning system has components that need to be service or replaced on a regular basis. - The filter gets clogged with dirt, bacteria and moisture- a blocked air-con filter will affect the performance of the entire system and it can even cause it to quit working entirely, the compressor needs oil, or it will seize up, and the rubber seals need to be checked for any leaks or deterioration that could be causing loss of refrigerant gas.
Air conditioner re-gas
The refrigerant in a car’s air conditioning system needs to be replaced or recharged completely within four years from the manufacturing date and then at least every two years to keep its maximum effectiveness.
Air conditioning service
Having an annual service on your car’s air con will help to prevent costly breakdowns – and a well serviced air-conditioner in your car means you will use less petrol – because when the compressor has to work harder due to the system working incorrectly this actually puts a bigger load on the engine and thus – you use more fuel.
Servicing on your air conditioning system will prevent malfunctions and save you money in the long run and it means you won’t find yourself stuck with a car full of hot air.
A standard Car air conditioning service includes
- Air vent temperature check
- Check Condenser temperature
- Suction line temperature check
- Adjustments of drive belt and pulley
- Check the operation of valves and thermostats
- Leak test the system lines and components with an electronic leak detector
- Inspect hoses and components
- Clean the condenser fins
