Common air conditioning problems
The most common problem customers report about there air conditioning systems
is 'Its just not getting cold' or 'its not as cold as it was last year'.
The system is dependent on the amount/weight of gas, not enough gas or even too much gas will mean the system is not working at full efficiency.
The gas leaks out slowly over time this is best compared to a balloon, over a long period of time the gas will slowly leak out and hence lose efficiency. To rectify this fault the A/C system needs servicing which is also called Air-conditioning Re-gas or A/C Recharge.
Electric and Hybrid Car Air-Conditioning systems
We can service Electric and Hybrid Car A/C systems. Some hybrid vehicles use air conditioning compressors that are operated by an electric motor instead of a drive belt, because of this they use a different compressor lubricating oil which doesn’t conduct electricity. It is important that there is no cross contamination when working on these cars to reduce the risk of a high voltage shock if the compressor was to fail in such a way or even cause the A/C system to fail when the incorrect oil is used!
Our A/C repairs are guaranteed for six months
If you have another A/C issue within the six month period unrelated to our repair, we will offer a free recharge service to help towards a cost effective repair.
