AIR CONDITIONING REPAIR AND RECHARGE
We have added to our list of services!
A recent purchase of an air conditioning unit now allows us to repair and recharge your air con system! Just be aware of which refrigerant your vehicle uses, most are currently fitted with R134A Refrigerant. Due to a law change, all cars from 17 plate onward use a different gas (R1234YF) which we can also recharge for you.
Recharges are priced at £50 + VAT for R134A and £120 + VAT for R1234YF . This will also include a leak test.
Unfortunately the air con is not part of the standard MOT test. To keep your air conditioning in order, ensure you use it every so often (even in the winter months!) to keep the oil circulating. If the system lies dormant for too long, the refrigerant gas will be used up more quickly.
If you're not sure whether you need your air conditioning repaired or recharged, here are some signs you do:
- Blowing warm or hot air.
If the air is not as cool as before, it could be down to the need for a recharge with new refrigerant as it gradually depletes over time. Though coupled with multiple symptoms, the system may need a repair.
- Strange noises
This can be an indicator of compressor failure, the air conditioning pump. If bearings in the compressor break down, this can contaminate your vehicles other components with metal particles.
