Air Conditioning

With our Australian summers getting hotter and more humid, ensuring your Air Conditioning system is performing efficiently is very important. Manufacturers recommend you service your Air Con and replace the pollen filter
every 2 years at a minimum. Doing so will ensure you stay cool and comfortable no matter how short or long your trip may be.

Your Air Conditioning system also plays a vital role in demisting your windows. Even in winter your car’s Air con is used to demist your windscreen and windows if they get fogged up.

What We Offer as Part of Our Air Conditioning Service

Our Air Conditioning Service uses the latest equipment and all the relevant oils to service your vehicle. These are some of the items included in the Service:

  • Remove all the old air con gas
  • Perform a vacuum leak test
  • Add PAG Oil to lubricate the Air Con Pump
  • Add UV Dye so that if there are any leaks in the future they are easily traceable
  • Add new air con gas to the correct level
  • Check the condition of your pollen filter, and replace if needed
  • (extra charges apply)
  • Check performance of system
  • Air Conditioning System Deodorizing

Inside the vehicle, the Air Con Pipes connect to a heat exchanger, known as an Evaporator. These can build up with moisture and attract bacteria that builds up over time and can cause an unpleasant smell. An Air Con Cleaner
is a quick and affordable solution to cleaning the evaporator from bacteria leaving your car smelling fresh.

Air Con Repairs

Using the lasted Diagnostic Computers and Auto data information we can identify and repair faults with system sensors, actuators and wiring. We use UV Dye, Oxygen free Nitrogen and leak detectors, to identify and repair
leaks in pipes and Air Con Radiator.

The condenser

The condenser is located in front of the radiator (and kind of looks like a radiator too). Through the use of cool air flow provided by the engine fan, the condenser cools the hot gas and converts it to liquid. The liquid
is still under considerable pressure and is warm, but not as hot or as high pressure as when it exited the compressor.

The Evaporator

As the cold liquid exits the expansion device, it is fed to a heat exchanger type device under the dash that blows warm air from the car interior across it. The cold liquid refrigerant is what cools the air you feel coming
out of the ducts. As the air is cooled in the heat exchanger, the liquid refrigerant is heated in the other side of the heat exchanger and then it evaporates.

Accumulator

Only used in orifice tube system. It contains a desiccant bag also. The accumulator provides a similar function as the drier in the expansion valve system, but is located in the evaporator outlet instead. This positioning
allows the accumulator to collect any un-evaporated refrigerant that may still be in the liquid state, hence protecting the compressor from liquid lock damage. The evaporated gas then returns via the large tube to the
compressor “suction” port to begin this whole process again.
