To prevent unexpected breakdown, we recommend having an inspection along with your vehicle’s annual MOT.
Our Air Conditioning Service
The following is included in your car’s air-con service:
- Temperature checks to make sure your air conditioning system is running at the correct temperature to prevent faults within other components.
- A refrigerant & coolant check to ensure that the air con has the correct amount of both refrigerant and coolant. This also ensures that the correct types of substances are being used.
- A detailed inspection of the air con’s key components including the compressor, condenser, drive belts and hoses.
- A leak test.

Recommended Frequencies for AC repair and Recharge
At Autocare, we recommend that you have your air conditioning unit checked on a regular basis, usually every 1 – 2 years to ensure maximum performance is kept. Additionally, a well-maintained air con unit will significantly reduce the risk of it failing unexpectedly, resulting in high repair costs.
Signs of a Problem with Your AC Unit
- Bad smells – these are caused when bacteria build up in the air conditioning unit and vents over time due to excess moisture causing mildew.
- Underperformance – this is caused when your air conditioning unit isn’t serviced regularly causing a fault to occur which can have a huge impact on performance.
- Higher fuel consumption – this is caused when your air conditioning unit is in constant use and not performing properly, therefore making the engine work harder.
