Air-Conditioning Services at Parkside Garage
This service is not part of routine vehicle servicing, so if your vehicle is more than two years old it is most likely due a re-gas, even if you feel like there’s nothing wrong with it, it’s always worth getting checked to prevent something from happening in the future. Aircon systems not fully recharged will be less effective and have to work harder putting more strain on the engine and using more fuel, costing you more money.
Parkside Garage offers a complete air conditioning re-gas service. We can also include a system de-bug to clear bacterial build up from within the system, which will remove any unpleasant odours.
Why Is Getting Your Air Conditioning Serviced Important?
Air conditioning services are done to make sure that everything in the system is working and that enough cool air can flow through so that your car doesn’t overheat, this is especially important during the summer. It’s recommended by manufacturers to get your car’s air con checked every two years to make sure that it’s in the best conditions and functioning correctly.
Air cons are generally not used for at least half of the year during the colder months, unless used to de-mist the windows in the morning, it’s not often necessary to use it during the winter. This long period of the air con not being used can quite often damage the air-con system, which is why we offer a reliable air conditioning services as a boiling hot car in the summer can be extremely uncomfortable, and therefore dangerous to drive in.
What Happens During an Air-Con Re-gas?
An air-con re-gas is basically the process of removing the old refrigerant gas with new refrigerant gas. This may seem like a very simple fix, however it is not. It’s always best to get it done by a specialist to make sure everything else within the air-con system is okay and saves you from making any mistakes.
More than 10% of aircon gas spreads throughout the car from the aircon system every year, reducing the efficiency and disrupting the process.
Manufacturers recommend your air-con system is recharged with gas and lubricant every two years.
