Why is it Important to Service Your Auto Air Conditioner Regularly?
Most of car owners are familiar with the typical auto air conditioner problem. Every 3-4 years gas leak eventually makes the cooling in the car inefficient and that is the time to visit your air conditioner specialist.

Did you know that regulations in Australia require the auto air conditioner service to be done by a licensed specialist?

It is a common mistake to think that auto air conditioner service involves just the gas refill.

We offer you a FREE checkup of the auto air conditioner 12 months after the service.

When performing the auto air conditioner service we never take shortcuts or skip steps. Our qualified mechanics start with visual inspection, then de-gasing, evacuating, adding oil and dye if the system requires.

Moisture accumulating inside the air conditioning system and lack of lubricant due to insufficient refrigerant can make irreversible damage to the compressor and the system in general!

Auto Air Conditioner - Main Components

    Commonly referred to as the heart of the system, the compressor is a belt driven pump that is fastened to the engine. It is responsible for compressing and transferring refrigerant gas.
    The condenser is designed to radiate the heat absorbed from the cabin.
    The evaporator serves as the heat absorption component.
    Controlling the evaporator temperature is accomplished by controlling refrigerant pressure and flow into the evaporator.
    The receiver-drier serves to separate gas and liquid. The secondary purpose is to remove moisture and filter out dirt.
    The Accumulator isolates the compressor from any damaging liquid refrigerant. They also remove debris and moisture from a system.
