Car Air Conditioning Service – An Integral Part of Routine Maintenance

A car air conditioning system should always be working at peak performance levels. A mal functioning unit puts added pressure on the engine resulting in increased fuel consumption. Like routine check-up and maintenance, car air conditioning service should compulsorily be scheduled once every year from a reputed and accredited service station. The main thing that is checked is the refrigerant level which needs to be topped up periodically. The air circulation system is also cleaned to ensure smooth flow of air and to get rid of foul odours given off by harmful bacteria that breeds in the vents. Apart from this, all components will be checked to make sure that the whole unit is functioning optimally.

Car air conditioning regas is another important aspect of car air conditioner maintenance and has to be carried out once every 2 years or 10,000km whichever is earlier. In this process, the gas pressure is first checked and if it is found to be low, a regas is called for. This is because correct pressure only can ensure high cooling efficiencies. In the hands of trained technicians, the regas process is not at all complicated. The old refrigerant gas, oil and dye is removed, the unit thoroughly cleaned out and dried, new oil, dye and refrigerant is filled in and the unit is left to run for some time. The cooling level and temperature is then checked to verify whether the regas has made a difference to cooling levels.
