Automotive Air Conditioning Servicing
An air-conditioning service should be carried out on your vehicle every 1-2 years to ensure optimum performance, keeping you comfortable while driving.
Vehicle air-conditioning systems lose around 15% of refrigerant each year. For this reason, you should have your unit re-gassed every 1-2 years.
Most modern vehicles are fitted with Cabin Filters. These filters trap dirt, pollen and other harmful particles and allergens from entering your vehicle’s air vents and need regular changing. We recommend doing this once a year to keep the air in your vehicle clean, hygienic and fresh.

We can repair and/or replace any component in your air-conditioning system. We are also experienced in full reinstatement of old air-conditioning systems which have been removed or have parts missing.
