Air Conditioning Services – Cheadle & Uttoxeter
All our air con technicians are ATE accredited.
An estimated 10% of air con gas permeates from the system every year.
Air con systems need recharging with gas and lubricant every 2 years.
No appointment is normally necessary – service operates on a drive in basis.
These days over two-thirds of vehicles are fitted with air conditioning and climate control systems as standard. Many of us are familiar with air con in our car on both hot and cold days, but not many people are aware that, like other parts of your car, the air conditioning system also needs regular attention to make sure it is working efficiently.
You may not be aware that over 10% of air con gas permeates from the air con system every year, which means that it may not work as well as it should. This is why car manufacturers recommend your air con system is recharged with gas and lubricant every 2 years. This service is not part of routine vehicle servicing so if your vehicle is more than 2 years old it’s probably due for a recharge.
During the hotter summer months, motorists use the air con system more. However your system is also useful in the winter. Air con systems create dry warm air rather than the normal humid air from outside, and this demists your car windscreen more quickly.
