Why does it need to be serviced?
From new your air conditioning system will lose up to 10% of its gas each year and so you can see that within five years your air con system will only be 50% efficient. Unless the gas is replaced, the system will be less able to keep you cool and refreshed. A faulty air conditioning system can also cause bacteria and a foul smell in the car.
What happens if it’s not serviced?
The system will continue to lose gas, become less efficient and lead to increased fuel consumption. It will eventually fail and need replacement parts. If the system is left off for long periods, the seals may fail causing further problems and expense.
What do we do?
We drain and recharge the system: check hoses, filters, belts, seals and connections; and make sure the compressor and condenser are working correctly.
How often does it need to be serviced?
Team AutoCentre recommends that the air conditioning system is serviced every 2 years.
Benefits of having your air con serviced
- Keeps you fresh, alert and safer
- Maintains the mechanical integrity of the system
- Our fixed price air conditioning service includes a system refresh which when the air con is turned on after the service will refresh and clean the air conditioning and air circulation system.
- This system refresh is also recommended between services to maintain your air conditioning system.
