The air conditioning system in your vehicle requires routine repairs and servicing so that it continues to operate efficiently and keep your car cool. We have the latest equipment to re-gas your air conditioning system and also to remove any unpleasant smells it may be producing using deoderising disinfectant. Your air conditioner generally requires a re-gas (also known as a recharge), once every 2 years. This service is generally not included in a routine service, meaning it can go unnoticed.
As well as re-gassing your air conditioner, we can repair and replace condensers, receiver dryers, air conditioning compressors, TX valves, pipes and hoses. To find out more, or to book in for an air conditioner repair, contact us today.
