However, just as your car requires servicing, so does your
car air conditioning system. The health of the car air conditioning
depends upon routine checks and regular servicing sessions,
ideally spaced twelve months to eighteen months apart. The
natural porosity of the hoses and other components of the
air conditioning require regular upkeep. Moreover, a well-functioning car air
con system is not just important it is a necessity,

slowly out of the car air con system at an estimated
rate of 15%-20% every year!

Do you have more questions on the servicing and
re-gassing of your car air con system ?
We hope that the below frequently asked questions will help
to clarify your doubts whilst providing you with a deeper
insight about the air-conditioning system servicing process.
What is the time duration required
for servicing and re-gassing the car air con?
In order to complete the servicing and re-gassing properly,
a minimum of one hour is required. A time period of less
than one hour means that the job is not being done properly.
How much gas does the car air con
The amount of gas is dependent on the make and model of
the car. The gas is measured by weight and a small sized
car can consume up to half a kilo of refrigerant, whilst
a luxury car with climate control can take as much as one
and a half kilos of gas.
How often does the car air con
system require servicing?
Ideally, the car air con system should be serviced
every 12 - 18 months. This ensures peak efficiency in operation.
If the air conditioning system is run on low refrigerant
level, then the compressor has to apply extra effort, thereby
reducing its life span.
Is the frequent running of the car
air con healthy?
Running the car air conditioning system regularly is good
for the systems health. It's advisable that you switch on
the air con for a short duration of time, irrespective of
the outside weather. When you run your aircon daily, it ensures
that the rubber seals and gaskets in your system remain lubricated,
thus preventing leaks.
What are the causes of bad odour? How
can the car smell fresh again?
Bacteria, micro - organisms or fungal growth behind the
dashboard on the evaporator is usually the cause of a strong
smell. When the fan blows air, these organisms blow into
the ambient car atmosphere causing flu like symptoms or allergic
reactions. Having the
car air con system serviced
will help get rid of these types of bacteria, leaving your
car smelling fresh and fragrant.
