Air Conditioning Information
Over two thirds of all vehicles manufactured today come with air conditioning and climate control systems as standard.
Many drivers experience the benefits of air con in their car or van on a hot day but just like other parts of your car, the air-conditioning system also needs regular attention to ensure it continues to work efficiently and effectively.
You may not be aware that over 10% of air-con gas permeates from the air-con system every year, which means that it may not work as well as it should. 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’s probably due an air-con recharge.
Did you know?
Air conditioning doesn’t just provide in-car comfort during the hot summer months; it can also be used in winter to demist your windscreen. Air-con systems create dry warm air rather than the normal humid air from outside which can clear your windscreen much more quickly than your regular blowers.
AJR’s offers a complete air-conditioning recharge service available. Appointments are usually available on the same day. However, for convenience, its best to call and book an appointment.
