Auto Air Conditioning

Air Conditioning Repair, Replacement & Service

Auto Conditioning Systems

Car air conditioning systems need servicing approximately every two years. The main reason for this is to change the receiver dryer (filter) which collects moisture in the system because this will eventually turn corrosive if not removed (very similar to the engine oil filter).

Servicing

Vehicle air-conditioning systems need regular servicing to remain operating at their best. Some systems loose refrigerant over time(farm equipment that are only used for 2 months of the year) so servicing replace refrigerant, to ensure compressor is running as it should. It’s similar to the regular servicing of your car. We recommend you have your air-conditioning checked every 12 months and serviced every second year.

A system  that is low on refrigerant can effect your fuel economy causing the compressor clutch to Engauge excessively (sometimes causing premature failure)

We check the electrical side of your aircon system while servicing to ensure,  everything is as it should be.

Air conditioning systems need regular servicing

Air conditioning systems need regular servicing to ensure that the system is
working to peak efficiency. A system low on gas or poorly maintained can increase
fuel consumption.

In the same way that the rest of your car needs servicing and
inspecting so does your air conditioning. Just as engines need oil, so do air
conditioning systems. Oil can be lost if small leaks go undetected, and lack of
lubrication and servicing can lead to expensive repairs. We recommend a full
service every two years, which includes the following:

* Inspect compressor mount and drive for security 
* Inspect drive belts and change or retention as necessary 
* Inspect condenser for leaks or damage 
* Check condition and routing of all hoses and wiring 
* Replace system filter 
* Check compressor oil level and top up as required 
* Recover, vacuum and fully recharge system 
* Carry out full system operational check to ensure no faults exist 
* Replace cabin pollen filter if fitted 
* Carry out full leak check of the system

Top Signs Your Car AC Needs Repair

Not cooling: The first warning sign is the most obvious: there is simply no AC. If you're
getting a whole lot of nothing out of the vents or warm or hot air instead, you could have a
problem with your HVAC system. This could be happening for a number of reasons: you
maybe out of refrigerant; you could have damaged cooling fans; or even something
simpler, like vents or a cabin air filter clogged with leaves or other debris. A trip to the
a mechanic can quickly diagnose the cause of the problem and a solution.
Slow to cool: Does it take longer than usual for the interior of your car to cool down? If it
does, a visit to the mechanic should be in order. There may be an insufficient amount of
refrigerant in your car's air conditioning system due to leaks. If the problem is not
addressed immediately, it could put a lot of strain on your car A/C system.

Strange sounds: The next easiest AC warning sign to spot is weird noises coming from the
system. If you turn on your air conditioning and start to hear banging, rattling or worse, it
may still be leaves or debris clogging up your fan unit that is causing those noises. Or, a
major part of the air conditioning system itself could be worn out and about to break. Once
you start to hear some strange sounds coming from your car, you need to bring it to a
professional for a diagnosis.

Water stains: After running your car air conditioning for a while, you should see water drain
out from the bottom of your car. This is perfectly normal and a good sign. However, if
instead, you see water stains inside your vehicle, then you could have a problem.

Sometimes, the drain on the bottom of your car becomes damaged or clogged, causing the
water to back up. It will then flow into your vehicle itself, typically pooling under the dash
and near the front floor mats. If this is the case, bring it to your mechanic soon.

Bad smells: Switching on your AC shouldn't be an unpleasant experience, but sometimes
foul odours may start to come out of your vents. This could be a big warning sign that there
is mould growth occurring within the air conditioning unit itself. A bad smell should be taken
care of immediately since mould can lead to respiratory problems and other health concerns
for you and your passengers.
