Over two thirds of vehicles are fitted with air conditioning and climate control systems as standard and many of us use our air conditioning system on a regular basis. Just like any component of a vehicle, the air conditioning system needs regular attention to make sure it is working efficiently.
As this service is not included within the routine vehicle servicing it is important to have this checked if your car is more than 2 years old. In general, car manufacturers recommend your air con system is recharged with gas and lubricant every 2 years as over 10% of air con gas permeates from the system every year.
Operated on a drive-in basis you can visit your local Tyre Pros centre to have your air con system recharged. The recharge process can also include an optional system de-bug to clear bacterial build up from within the system, which will remove any unpleasant odours you may experience when your air con is in use.
Why should I get my air con system recharged?
Air con systems which are not fully recharged will be less effective and have to work harder, putting more strain on the engine and using more fuel as a result. Remember that your air con system is just as important in the winter as it is in the summer, as it creates dry warm air rather than the normal humid air from outside and this demists your car windscreen more quickly.
To keep your air con system fully charged all year, why not call in to your local Tyre Pros and have your vehicle’s air conditioning system recharged with gas and lubricant today.
Recharge or No Charge
Let Tyre Pros recharge your Air Con while-you-wait. We will replace and recharge lubricant and refrigerant levels in line with your manufacturer’s recommendation. If we cannot improve the coolest vent temperature from your car by more than 10% when measured in degrees Celsius - then you pay nothing at all.*
* Please note if the ambient temperature around the car is less than 9 degrees Celsius it may affect the results of the air con recharge test results. In these circumstances, it is at the manager’s discretion whether to offer a refund with results less than 10%.
