Car Air Conditioning Service, Regas and Repair

The car air conditioner isn’t just a comfort accessory; it’s an important safety feature that keeps the cabin cool in summer and the windscreen mist-free in winter. The last thing you want is to find it malfunctioning just when you need it, so keep it in premium condition with BM Tech’s car air conditioning repair and service. No matter the issue – not cooling, emitting an odd smell, no air coming from the vents – we can diagnose and repair in our state-of-the-art service centre.

Of course, we’re not ones to advise waiting until it stops working. If your car hasn’t seen a technician in a while, book in now and we can perform a little preventative medicine. It’s always cheaper to nip potential issues in the bud, and you’ll avoid having your car off the road for lengthy periods.

Trust your car to experienced and certified technicians

A car’s air conditioning system is complex. The servicing industry is, therefore, highly regulated and requires specialist training. Always make sure you have your car seen by a professional with the necessary background and expertise.

At BM Tech, our technicians are fully qualified and licensed by Arctick, which is a legal requirement for anyone working with refrigeration and air conditioning.

What’s involved in a car air conditioning service?

A service of your car’s air conditioning typically involves:

  • An inspection of the entire system – hoses, pulleys, belts, etc.
  • A check of both low and high pressures.
  • Checking the gas levels are correct. This involves removing and measuring the gas content to determine the level.
  • Operating the system to ensure buttons, thermostats, blowers and the compressor clutch work.
  • Making sure the compressor is operating at the correct temperature.

Don’t wait to have your air conditioner repaired

As we’ve mentioned, your car’s air conditioner provides a vital safety function as well as being a source of comfort. In winter, it keeps your windscreen mist free so you actually see where you’re driving. In summer, a car’s cabin can reach lethal temperatures, and the air conditioner is often the only feature that can make your car driveable.

Another reason to have your air conditioner seen to promptly is if you notice an odd smell emanating from the vents. This could be caused by mold, which can grow in the evaporator and air vents. When you run the air conditioner, the air carries spores through the vents and into the cabin. This is a health risk, and something you don’t want to leave unattended as the mould continues to grow.

Always have your car’s air conditioner seen by a legally qualified technician whenever you notice an issue.

How can I maintain my car air conditioner?

Your car’s air conditioning system contains a number of seals and hoses that benefit from continual use. When unused for lengthy periods, the rubber these seals and hoses are made from can become hard and brittle, leading to cracks and splits.

We recommend running your car’s air conditioner for ten minutes at least once a month, no matter the time of the year. If it’s coming up to summer and you haven’t turned it on since March, run it and make sure it’s in working condition. If it isn’t, you’ve given yourself some time to have it repaired before the hot days kick in.
