More than 10% of air conditioning (air con) gas permeates from the air con system every year, reducing the efficiency and impeding its operation.
Manufacturers recommend air con systems are charged with gas and lubricant every two years.
This service is not part of routine vehicle servicing, so if your vehicle is more than two years old it is probably due for a recharge. Air con systems that are not fully charged will be less effective and will have to work harder.
At Buxton Car Centre Service & Repairs, we offer a complete air conditioning recharge service and we can also clear the bacterial build up from within the system, which will remove any unpleasant odours and improve efficiency.
