The MOT Specialists
We offer a complete air conditioning recharge service. We can also include a system de-bug to clear bacteria that builds up within the system
which will remove any unpleasant odours.
There are two types of air conditioning depending on your vehicle R1234YF & R134A, there is normally a label located under the bonnet of your vehicle.
We offer both R1234YF & R134A, the price for these depends on the gas required for your vehicle.
A recharge (or regas) makes sure that your air conditioning system runs effectively whenever you need it. Over time and with regular use the gas in your air conditioning system will run low and will need to be replenished.
If you’re unsure whether your air conditioning system needs to have its refrigerant gas topped-up, our experts will be happy to carry out a free temperature test to
see if the air coming from your air conditioning system is as cool as it should
How often should you recharge your air conditioning?
Regular checks will ensure that your air conditioning is working at its optimum performance and makes sitting in your vehicle on a hot day a lot more comfortable, as well as ensuring the windscreen is clear in the winter months.
We recommend that you have your air conditioning system checked for its gas/refrigerant level every 2 years to keep it running healthily.
If you are in any doubt whether your air conditioning system is operating as it should be, we will be happy to give your vehicle a free temperature test so you can find out whether you would benefit from a recharge.
Why recharge your air conditioning?
Air conditioning is kept cool thanks to a refrigerant gas that circulates in the system, making sure that cool air spreads throughout the entire vehicle.
In the two years recommended between system checks and potential top ups of refrigerant a lot can change, like the amount of refrigerant gas remaining in the system. This service is not part of routine vehicle servicing.
As well as keeping your vehicle cool in the summer and the windscreen de-misted in the winter, using your air conditioner regularly will help it operate as efficiently as
A drop in gas level will result in a loss of system efficiency. As air conditioning checks are not always covered in your annual service or MOT you should have the system
checked routinely to ensure its long-lasting performance.
Our expert technicians will restore your air conditioning lubricant oil and refrigerant levels in line with the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation.
Anti-Bacterial Cleaning Service
Air conditioning units are prone to accumulating bacteria through everyday use, as well as after long periods without use
The first sign you might notice this is a persistent smell coming from your vehicles air conditioning system. In some cases the smell might go after a short period of
having run the system, this is especially common if the air conditioning has not been used for a while. In other cases the bacteria build-up will need to be cleaned from the system, which is why we offer our anti-bacterial cleaning service.
An air conditioning anti-bacterial clean can remove bacteria from the system and help prevent its future build-up for a period of time, bringing back the crisp, cool air that
should be coming out from your vents.
