Are you using more fuel keeping your cool?

Port Adelaide Auto Repairs (AU31293) are the best mechanics to manage all your Vehicle Air Conditioner Regas, Repair, Service or Inspection needs in Port Adelaide and the surrounding areas.

Modern vehicles are complex and just like the engine servicing your car's air conditioner regularly is very important to ensure continued reliable and efficient operation.

As refrigerant levels decrease from evaporation or leaks your air con system will begin to deteriorate and will have to work harder, with a resulting increase in fuel being used up. Therefore it is important that the rubber seals are studied on a regular basis for any signs of leaks or cracks which could be a sign of a loss of refrigerant.

An annual car air conditioner service means you generally assist prevention of costly breakdowns now and in the future, keep passengers safe by helping to prevent the build-up of potentially harmful substances and a well serviced car air conditioning system actually saves you money because it means less fuel is being expended.

Air Conditioning System Failure: Symptoms and Causes

  • Air is not freely flowing into the cabin of the vehicle because the ventilation fan or circuit is faulty.
  • There is a refrigerant leak in the system not allowing the air to cool.
  • There is a blockage in the system due to the expansion valve is stuck closed or frozen, dirty filter/dryer not allowing the air to cool.
  • There is a smell coming from the AC because of mold or a dirty air filter.
