Car Air Conditioning Service

Keep your cool this summer with a properly maintained car air conditioning system.

In Australia a properly working air conditioner is vital to keeping your car comfortable all year round.  Regular car services will check for obvious faults which may be associated with the air conditioning system, like drive belt tension, visible signs of refrigerant leaks and loose or faulty compressor or equipment mounting brackets, however  it's good practice to have a comprehensive air conditioning service regularly.

Did you know that in addition to regular servicing, running your car air conditioning during winter also helps to maintain the system in good working order. Air conditioning systems contain a myriad of hoses and seals that can dry out or crack, which could lead to coolant leaks and poor performance.  View our Air conditioning AutoFacts video to learn more.

When you visit your local Repco Authorised Service centre, trained mechanics will perform a series of checks, balances, repairs and replacements to get your air conditioner in top condition. 

Commonly asked questions about car air conditioning systems:

How much should a car air conditioning service cost?

The price of an air conditioning service can vary.  Repco Authorised Service offers a car air conditioning service starting from $99*, excluding parts and gas.  If additional repairs are required a workshop will be able to provide you with a quote prior to moving forward.

How long will a car air conditioning service last? 

The general rule is that if the car air conditioning system is well maintained to begin with, the benefits and advantages that come with a comprehensive service performed by a suitably qualified and certified technician should last at least until the next service or about two years time.

Protecting the environment

Refrigerant gas is extremely damaging to the ozone layer and any gas that is irresponsibly released into the atmosphere harms the environment and contributes to global warming. By law, all refrigerant gas must be recycled and Repco Authorised Service applauds the work and efforts of bodies such as Refrigerant Reclaim Australia and who help to ensure refrigerant gas is recycled or if contaminated, destroyed using specific methods.
