Is your vehicle cool enough for you? Most modern cars now have air conditioning systems included as standard. Air conditioning systems, just like an engine, need to be serviced regularly.
Every year, on average, a system loses between 10%-15% of its refrigerated gases. This means that the system will not cool as effectively, and it is possible that, if gas pressure falls below a certain level the system will shut down. Now could be the best time to have your system serviced especially if you have not done so for a while, contact the air conditioning servicing specialists in St Albans.
When you bring your vehicle in to us at Prestige Performance we will first measure the amount of pressure in your vehicle’s air conditioning system. If it is low, we will add enough air conditioning gas to bring the reading within your manufacturer’s specifications.
We will then run your car for a few minutes with the air conditioning on high and we use a special thermometer to measure your system’s output. If it is not within the necessary parameters, you may have a leak somewhere in your system.
Air Conditioning Service Includes:
- Old oil and gas removed
- Leaks checked – including inspecting for cracks
- Air conditioning system vacuumed
- Gas impurities burnt off
- Tracer dye (if needed) added to the system
- New oil added to the system
- To the manufacturers’ specification, refrigerant gas added
- Operating pressures tested
- Cooling effect tested
- Further diagnostic investigation or servicing (if required)
The best way to keep your compressor from failing is to have your air conditioning system serviced once a year, including the addition of the right kind of lubrication for your unit.
