Air Conditioning Re-Gas / Service
Just like hotels, office etc… we find that drivers are also experiencing the benefits of air conditioning in their cars or vans on those hot days. But not realising just like other parts of your car, the air-conditioning system also needs regular attention to ensure it continues to work effectively.
Vehicle air conditioning systems can lose refrigerant gas over time, especially if they aren’t used regularly, which means that they may not work as well as they should. This is why car manufacturers recommend your air-con system is recharged with gas and lubricant every 2 years. This service is not part of routine vehicle servicing, so if your vehicle is more than 2 years old it’s probably due an air-con recharge and service.
Here at G5 Cars we offer a complete air-conditioning recharge or service, which is operated on a drive-in basis, appointments are usually available on the same day. However, for added convenience, you can pre-book your appointment by calling our office and talking to one of our friendly staff.
Did you realise??
Your vehicle air conditioning doesn’t just provide in-car comfort during those hot summer months, it can also be used in the winter to demist your windows. The air-conditioning systems create dry warm air rather than the normal humid air from outside which can clear your windscreen much quickly than your regular blowers.
Air Conditioning Re-gas
Our trained technicians will show you the difference in your air-conditioning system before and after recharge. Air-con systems that are not recharged regularly will be less effective and have to work harder to produce cool air. This puts more strain on the engine and uses more fuel. If your air-con system has not been recharged in the past two years it will dramatically reduce efficiency.
Air Conditioning Re-gas & Service
Depending on the age and condition of your air-conditioning system the recharge procedure can be quite straight forward and involves removing any old refrigerant gas and oil from your air-con system before replacing this with the correct amount of new refrigerant and lubricant as per your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation. A vacuum test is also performed to ensure there are no cracks or damage in your air-conditioning system that could cause the gas to leak out.
Within an hour the whole recharge process is completed and you will once again have refreshing cool air on demand. The process can also include replacing the cabin filter; de-bug to clear bacterial build up from within the system, which will remove any unpleasant odours.
