Regular checks will ensure that it is working at optimum performance and you remain as cool as a cucumber inside, even when it’s hot hot hot outside.
Our fully trained technicians will conduct a free air-con temperature check to ensure the system is working correctly.  

If your system needs recharging, we can carry out the work for you while you wait.

Leaks & Pressure Testing

leak testingA common myth is that A/C systems are only needed during hot weather. It may surprise most vehicle owners to discover that the A/C system is a huge benefit throughout the year. Modern A/C systems are an integrated part of the greater vehicle passenger compartment heating, ventilation and air quality control system.

During cool or humid conditions the A/C system removes moisture from the air and quickens the window defog/defrosting process.

So your Air conditioning system should be serviced yearly. Distance driven does not influence the service interval. Vehicles that are not driven regularly are at an even greater risk of refrigerant leakage due to seals not being kept lubricated by oil circulating in the A/C system.Regular servicing of your air conditioning system will prevent costly repairs and ensure your comfort year round.

Testing for leaks is an integral part of ensuring you air conditioning system performs as expected!

Pipe & Hose Repairs

Air Condition System Flushing

air con flushAll of us would like our car air conditioning system to work efficiently, especially during warm periods to have better fuel economy and reduced wear and tear of air con components, such as our compressor.

For optimal performance and prevention of malfunction of components (e.g compressor failure), the air-conditioning system needs servicing at regular intervals.
This is performed using our New Microprocessor controlled automatic air conditioning service equipment to flush the air conditioning system.

This equipment effectively flushes impurities, purges used compressor oil and old refrigerant(gas) from the components of the car air conditioning system.
Upon thorough flushing, the air conditioning system will be charged with fresh compressor oil and HFC-134a refrigerant.

This will greatly improve the efficiency of the air conditioning system, thus improving your car’s fuel economy too!
