Why do I need  have my Car Air conditioning system serviced?

All vehicles air conditioning systems leak to a lesser or greater degree. The losses occur through refrigerant escaping through the pipe joins as a result of vibration and ageing of rubber hoses and ''O'' ring seals , as well as through the seals on the front of the compressor shaft

How often should the Car Air conditioning system be Inspected or Serviced?

Did you know that your vehicles aircon should be serviced every 20000 km’s or yearly depending which comes first. A service of the system should be  carried out  at least every year even if it appears to be working well. It is estimated that you lose between  20-30 % of the intial gas  change over a two year period and this figure is based on new vehicles. RadioAutoSonic Air Conditioning Specialist can provide a comprehensive list  of all checks carried out and produce a report on the condition of the system.

Is it true that the  vehicles Car Air conditioning system should often run throughout the year?

Yes , this  helps to keep the system well lubricated and leak tight.

Why?

Because the refrigerant actually carries the oil that lubricates the system , most importantly the compressor. It also keeps the seals and hoses moist , thus preventing them from drying out and cracking leading leaks.

Whats involved in a service?

We measure the pressures in the system , check quality of the refrigerant present with a Gas Analyser and check all functions. Then we recover the refrigerant and vacuum the system down to a very low pressure (Deep Vacuum process) to remove any moist that may be present . We then Re-Charge (Re-Gas) with new refrigerant R134a and also add a measured amount of the correct type of lubricant for your system. We also add Ultra Violet dye to help find any leaks that may develop in the future.
