Air Conditioning

Having a fully operational air conditioning system not only adds to your comfort, but it also provides additional safety when used for window demisting.

There are several signs your air conditioning system is not performing at its peak and indicate it's time to see your local Repco Authorised Service centre.

- Lack of fresh air
- Squealing or grinding noises
- Odours
- Excess moisture on the inside of your windscreen
- Refrigerant or oil leaks

The most common cause of car air conditioning problems is a lack of refrigerant. In cases of refrigerant leaks the lubricant won't work properly; in turn this could potentially damage the compressor which is the most expensive part of the air conditioning system.

Car Air Conditioning Tip

Air conditioning systems have hoses that can dry out and crack when not being used. This leads to refrigerant leak and poor performance. To prevent this happening, run your air conditioning regularly during winter to help keep the system lubricated.

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 conditioning in top condition, including:

- Inspection of drive belts and pulleys.
- Check operation of valves and thermostats.
- Inspection of hoses and components.
- Evacuate system and recover refrigerant.
- Add required amount of refrigerant oil.
- Charge system with recommended refrigerant type and capacity.

Handle with care

It's important to have your car air conditioning system regularly inspected to ensure its properly sealed; this can help avoid costly repairs. Refrigerant gas is extremely dangerous and can damage the environment; your local Repco Authorised Service centre will know how to work on your air conditioning and properly recycle the A/C refrigerant.
