Air Conditioning Recharge and Repair from Status Car Care
It is Important to maintain your cars air conditioning all year round to ensure you keep your car cool in the summer and your windows demisted in the winter.
Around 10% of gas is lost through your air con system every year, meaning that your air conditioning will require a recharge the more it is used . 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 may be due an air con recharge.
As part of our service we will check for all leaks, draining, recharging the refrigerant, lubricating and checking the system for operating temperatures.
