Car Air Conditioning


It’s so easy to forget all about your cars air conditioning service until the middle of summer but regular servicing of your air con system is not something you should forget about.


Why service my Car Air Conditioner ?

Just like any anything that contains many parts, the air conditioning system in your car must get serviced on a regular basis in order to keep working. Without oil the compressor can seize up, The air filters become clogged with dirt, bacteria and moisture, which is not just yucky - a blocked air-con filter can even cause your air conditioning to quit working altogether. The rubber seals need to be checked for any leaks to make sure they are not leaking refrigerant gas.


Why Do I need to re-gas my car’s air con ?

Most vehicles lose a bit of refrigerant gas over time, but if the seals are worn they will lose a lot –once your refrigerant gas starts to get low your air con just won’t be as cold as it should be. And eventually it will stop running altogether. Even without leaks the gas in a car air conditioning system should to be recharged completely within four years from the manufacture date and every two to three years after that just to keep your system in peak condition.


How often should the cooling system in my car be serviced ?

We recommend getting an annual air-conditioning service – It’s the best way to prevent costly breakdowns in the future – and a well serviced air-con actually saves you money because it uses less petrol – if the compressor has to work harder due to the system working inefficiently this actually puts a bigger load on the engine using more fuel.


Wells Automotive technicians are qualified refrigerant handlers and can perform air conditioning repairs, services and re-gas on most makes and models.
