Air Conditioning Service


Your car air conditioner system uses refrigerant to extract the heat from the air within the interior of the vehicle to the exterior, leaving only cooled or 'conditioned' air behind to be redistributed. Therefore it should be considered critical to conduct an inspection of the condition of the rubber seals for any signs of leaks or decline which could be causing a loss of refrigerant.

Even new cars can lose approximately 20% of their refrigerant gas within two years of purchase.

To run most efficiently the refrigerant in your Car Air Conditioner should be refilled completely within four years of the manufacture date and every two to three years after that.
