Does my car need a Regas?
A regas recharge service will recharge your air con system and bring it back to being cold again. Car air con needs regular maintenance to ensure that it is functioning as powerfully as possible. Mekaniks offer a complete air conditioning recharge service.
Manufacturers recommend that your air con is recharged every two years as your car or van air conditioner is not checked as part of your MOT test and recharging is not classically included in your Service. If your AC is blowing out warm air or only works now and then, an AC recharge can bring back cold air when you need it most on hot days, and can also improve your fuel efficiency as there is less strain on the system and engine. Nasty smells coming from the air vents also suggest that your air con needs some consideration.
Air con systems create dry warm air rather than the normal humid air from outside which can clear your windscreen much more quickly than your regular blowers in the winter.
Any old refrigerant gas and oil is removed from your air con system using specific Air conditioning machines and systems before replacing this with the correct amount of new refrigerant and lubricant as per your vehicle manufacturer’s advice. A vacuum test is also performed to ensure there are no cracks or damage in your vehicle air conditioning system that could cause the gas to leak out.
The air conditioning regas process takes approximately 2 hours until the recharge process is completed and you will have cool air on command. Our air con specialists will show you the difference in your AC before and after recharge. Vehicle air conditioners that are not recharged regularly will be less effective and have to work harder to produce cool air, and a result puts more strain on the engine and uses more fuel. If your air conditioning system has not been recharged in the past two years it will dramatically reduce effectiveness.
What is Air Conditioning Cleaning?
After a while, bacteria, mould and fungi can build up on the evaporator in your air conditioning system which produces this horrible smell when turned on. Your car may also benefit from an air con clean, In some cases this can cause sickness and respiratory problems as bacterial particles are blown into the cabin of the vehicle and breathed in by all the passengers. Mekaniks can decontaminate the system and kill the bacteria. This involves a cleaning spray cabin which is sucked into the air vents and kills off the unwanted bacteria within, leaving your vehicle air conditioning system clean and smelling fresh again. This is available as a optional extra when you have your air conditioning regased. Or you can have a air-conditioning service which already included this.
What's included in an Air Con Service?
A temperature check, a refrigerant level check and then a methodical inspection of the system’s components, including the compressor, condenser, drive belts and hoses. And finally a leak test. If all the system turns out to be fine then we will replace and recharge lubricant and refrigerant levels accordingly with your manufacturer’s recommendation.
If we discover a fault during the inspection, leak or component damage, we will discuss the recommended repairs with you, and give a no obligation quote before any work is carried out.
If there compressor does not turn on, there is a chance there is little gas left, the system will not be diagnosed until after the car has been regassed. We advise you service your air conditioning system every two years to reload the liquids used by the system, and to ensure all components are working correctly.
How long does it take?
The air conditioning service process can take 1-2 hours depending on your vehicle’s air condition size.
Does the Regasing/Recharging/Service include repairs?
Repair work is not included. If, during the inspection, any faults, leaks or component failures are recognized, additional work will be advised.
Do you do the newer gas R1234YF?
Yes, all vehicles manufactured from 2017 onwards require a new type of refrigerant gas by law.
Car repair just got a whole lot easier
