Over ten per cent of air-con gas permeates from the air conditioning system every year, reducing the efficiency and impeding operation. Manufacturers recommend your air-con system is recharged with gas and lubricant every two years.
This service is not part of routine vehicle servicing, so if your vehicle is more than two years old it is probably due a recharge. Air-con systems not fully recharged will be less effective and have to work harder putting more strain on the engine and using more fuel.
Banwell Garage offers a complete air conditioning recharge service. We can also include a system de-bug to clear bacterial build up from within the system, which will remove any unpleasant odours.
