We don’t realise how much we appreciate in-car air conditioning until it’s broken or in need of repairs. Not just utilised in the summer when we need to call down from the heat, air conditioning is something that is essential throughout the year within the standard system itself or as part of the climate control. Whether you have a modern car or one that has been on the road for decades, air-con systems can lose up to 10% refrigerant every year meaning that it’s deteriorating day by day.
At Price Brothers, we can spot the tell-tale signs that your vehicle needs air conditioning repairs, recharging or an overall service. Noticed that the air is not as cold as it used to be? Or the windows are not de-misting as efficiently or effectively as they used to? These easy spots help to identify that work needs to be carried out. Fortunately, our experienced and knowledgeable engineers and mechanics have solved these very issues for a wide range of makes and models of vehicles, providing quick, cost-effective and high-quality service from start to finish. Whatever the issue, our dedicated team of specialists will be able to guide you.
Did you know that an air conditioning check is not part of your MOT? That’s why it’s important to have an air con service every 18 months to ensure that it is running to its best. However, there may come a time when the system is in need of care and attention to prevent further problems such as unusual noises, water leaks, high humidity and the build-up of fungus and bacteria that can cause a smell.
Our air conditioning services are essential when your vehicle is in need of repair so that it can keep cool when required most. It’s our responsibility to make sure that it is fully restored and our expertise in this area means that you’ll drive away with a system good as new. We’ll take an in-depth look at the vehicle, troubleshoot and diagnose it to get to the root of the problem, and provide advice tailored to your vehicle along with a quotation of the labour and parts. Seeking professional help from a well reputable garage such as Price Brothers for air conditioning repairs isn’t just to give you peace of mind, it’s a legal requirement for the system to be worked on by a qualified engineer.
There’s a difference between air conditioning that needs to be repaired or recharged. Air conditioning recharge means that it isn’t completely inoperable, but needs a refrigerant boost. This minimises the chance that it will need a full repair, so in the long run, is beneficial to book your car with us at a time that is convenient for you. It’s recommended that this is done every two years on top of your usual service as an additional extra as part of your maintenance routine.
The process is simple as we’ll be able to identify in no time which gas is required for the recharge, but do allow yourself a few hours for the process to be complete. Our in-house leak detection kit will be able to identify any issues in the system which will stop us from vacuuming the air conditioning system, therefore denying us the opportunity to recharge the gas and instead take it in for repairs. This means that pipes and seals could be damaged. Don’t worry we’ll consult you every step of the way about any issues discovered and the best course of action to get them mended. Our professional engineers and mechanics have improved hundreds of cars and provide excellent results for your air conditioning.
