Air conditioning systems naturally lose charge over a period of time (unless used on a regular basis, once or twice a week during the winter). This will cause the system to work harder, using more fuel to attain the same level of performance. If it is not working at all, we recommend that repair is undertaken as soon as possible to avoid absorption of moisture and damage to the compressor and other parts of the system. Servicing of air conditioning and anti-bacterial treatments are recommended every 2-3 years.
We use AutoData Online, an advanced vehicle auto-diagnostic software that gives us full technical specifications on all makes and models of cars. Whatever the problem, we can plug your car into our computer system that will quickly identify any faults enabling us to provide a solution and quotation for the work required.
