Many people are unaware that like other parts of your car, the air-conditioning system needs regular attention to ensure that it is working efficiently. At Victory Auto Repairs we offer 2 types of air conditioning services; Air-Conditioning Re-Gas and Air-Conditioning Clean. Those services are designed to ensure that your car air conditioning is working efficiently and to remove unpleasant smells.
It is recommended that you should recharge your air-conditioning system every 2 years with gas and lubricant, in order to keep it running efficiently. This is not included as part of a routine car service and so it can often be overlooked. If your car is more than 2 years old it is more than likely due a re-gas.
This service ensures that your air-conditioning system is working efficiently by testing the gas pressure to see if it has dropped. A drop in gas pressure will result in a loss of cooling efficiency which will make your engine work harder and in turn use more fuel.
Due to it’s dehumidifying properties, when operating fully efficiently, your air-conditioning system will also de-mist your windscreen more rapidly in cold weather.
Our fully trained technicians will take a temperature reading from your air-conditioning system; remove all the old refrigerant gas, oil and dye. They then clean the whole system and remove any moisture within. Once the system has been thoroughly cleansed our technicians will inject new oil, dye and refrigerant gas and take a temperature reading again to ensure that the re-gas has made a difference to the cold air temperature.
This process will ensure that your air-conditioning system is working to its full potential.
