Contrary to popular belief, if the air conditioning in your car is not as effective as it usual is, a simple topping up of refrigerant gas may not provide a solution. Usually this is caused by a leak in your vehicle's air conditioning system caused by cracked or faulty components.
With every air conditioning service, we fully assess your system by running a leak test, a pressure test and then running a special dye through to see if there are any small leaks. This will allow us to determine if there are any faults. If any are found we will offer you advice and repair or replace these parts at your discretion.
No matter the make or model of your vehicle, we guarantee you the best, most comprehensive air conditioning repair service.
How often should I get my air conditioning system checked?
If your vehicle's air conditioning seems to be running well there is no need to get it checked! Only when it seems to lose effectiveness should you get it serviced.
Can I service my vehicle's air conditioning system myself?
No as refrigerant is sealed inside the system. The law requires a qualified technician with a refrigerant handling license to perform this work, to ensure safe environmental practices are carried out and to maintain the correct manufacturer’s specification for your vehicle. Our technicians have all licences as required by law and are accredited with the Australian Refrigeration Council.
How much will it cost to fix my vehicle's air conditioning system?
This varies by the make and model of your vehicle. If the issue with your system is caused by a faulty component this will need to be diagnosed and quoted. The best way to get an accurate quote is to call our friendly and knowledgeable team!
Will maintenance prevent my air conditioning system from failing?
Your unit is comprised of a compressor unit, receiver dryer and condensation drain. These parts are connected with a system of metal pipes and rubber hoses which are sealed to the actual components with o-rings and crimps on the rubber hoses where they attach to the metal pipes. Provided there hasn’t been any physical damage to any parts or connections in the system, the o-rings and crimps are the places where “spontaneous” leaks develop. There are no regular preventative maintenance steps that can be taken to help keep these leaks from happening.
