Air Conditioning Servicing

Air Conditioning Servicing, Repairs and Diagnostics

Well-known specialists in car services in the Bristol area.

Air-con has become a very reliable and important component in almost all modern cars. As well as being particularly useful in the warmer months to keep cool, it is also useful in winter months to demist window screens. However, not that many car drivers are aware of the best ways to maintain their air-cons, instead they wait until the system breaks to get it fixed. This can be very inconvenient as you may have to go a certain amount of time without any cooling system.

AP Autocare are air conditioning specialists in the Bristol area. We are licensed to handle R1234a and R1234yf refrigerants. If your car is in need of air conditioning servicing or repairs then look no further. Our professional fully qualified technicians are trained and registered to handle refrigerants and can get your vehicle back on the road promptly. Our technicians will check the efficiency of your air conditioning system and determine if a repair or recharge is required.

Blowing hot air? Do not worry, our team of technicians will check to see what parts have failed. We will report on pipes, hoses, condensers, compressors and drive belt systems. Does your car produce bad odours? No problem here, we have the latest of equipment to allow us to create an ozone system in the vehicle to eliminate odour producing bacteria and leave your car’s air conditioning smelling fragrant and fresh.

An air conditioning check is not part of your MOT. The DVSA guidelines only set out what is deemed to be critical to the safe running of the vehicle and air-con did not make the cut. So do not expect your air-con refrigerant to be refilled when you pick your car up. Air-con checks are also not part of the standard service schedule, however, many manufacturers provide a separate air-con service which will recommend a regas every 2 years. If you don’t want your air-con to break down unexpectedly then it would definitely be worthwhile to get this service.

Recharging the refrigerant in your air-con system regularly will reduce the chances of anything going wrong. Low refrigerant is the most common reason air-con stops working and it is easy to fix. It could end up being expensive later on if you leave it and then need to pay for new parts and repairs. If the system runs out of gas, it will start to blow out hot air which is obviously not effective in keeping the car cool. The refrigerant is also extremely cold so plays the role of stopping the compressor from getting dangerously hot and failing. Having a full tank of refrigerant increases fuel efficiency because less energy is needed to produce cold air. All these reasons prove that recharging your car’s air conditioning system regularly will save you money and stress.

We recommend an air-con service every two years to recharge the refrigerant and check for any damages which need repairing.
