FREE Air Con Check

All vehicle air conditioning systems lose on average 10% of the total refrigerant per year. This is due to natural evaporation. From a FREE!! Gauge check we can estimate if your vehicle is low on gas and if the system is empty due to a possible leak. We will also test the temperature output from the vents, visually check pipes and connections.

Even in new air con systems there can be a 10% refrigerant loss each year which may damage the compressor. This leads to a reduction of cooling capacity. The filter drier removes humidity and dirt from the refrigerating agent. The oil in the refrigerant lubricates the system compressor. A lack of refrigerant always means a HIGH RISK of insufficient lubrication, which may result in a total failure of the compressor, leaving you with potential repair costs of up to £1000. Additionally an insufficient quantity of refrigerant agent means additional petrol consumption.

 

Disinfect

 

Air conditioning systems should be disinfected at least every 6 months or 6000 miles. This is due to build up of bacteria and micro organisms on the evaporator, which can cause an allergic reaction in some people.
Every air con system has an evaporator on which water condenses on its grill. Over a period of time, bacteria, fungi and micro organisms settle on this grill. Therefore, the evaporator needs to be disinfected at regular intervals. We can disinfect your air conditioning system while you wait in only 15 minutes!!

 

Pollen Filter

 

In every vehicle there is a filter in passenger compartment which filters dust, pollen and dirt particles out of the air. This is before the clean and cool air flows into the passenger compartment. The amount a filter can absorb and clean is limited. As such it recommended that this filter be checked regularly and replacement on a service if needed.

 

Servicing

 

To maintain the efficiency of an air conditioning system and to prolong the life of the components like the compressor, it is recommended to have a full service carried out at least every 2 years.
At Hall’s we can offer a complete comprehensive service to your air conditioning system. The service comprising of:
· Removal of old refrigerant gas and oil
· Fitting of a new filter drier
