Car air-con on the blink? Don't sweat, we'll sort it. If your car's air conditioning is starting to play up and you're not sure what is going on there could be an issue. One of the first signs that your vehicle's air conditioning has a fault is that it will blow cold and warm intermittently.
Most manufacturers recommend recharging your air conditioning system every 2 years. This is not part of a regular service routine, so it's important to keep an eye on regular maintenance.
With our state of the art technology, your air conditioning will not only be completely cleaned and re-gassed, but we can now fix your air conditioning while you wait too.
Lynx Autocare will remove any old refrigerant gas and oil from your air con system before replacing this with the correct amount of new refrigerant and lubricant. Additionally, a vacuum test is performed to ensure there are no leaks in your vehicle air conditioning system that could cause the gas to escape. Vehicle air conditioners that are not recharged regularly will be less effective and have to work harder to produce cool air. This puts more strain on the engine and uses more fuel. If your air conditioning system has not been recharged in the past two years it will dramatically reduce efficiency.
Poorly maintained air conditioning systems may also emit bad odours from your air vents, if so then your car may also benefit from an air con clean, also known as a debugging bomb. Bacteria, mould and fungi can build up in your system which produces this bad smell. Lynx Autocare offers an air conditioning clean to decontaminate the system and kill the bacteria within. The process involves setting off a cleaning spray or 'bomb' in the vehicle cabin which is sucked into the air vents and kills off the unwanted bacteria within, leaving your vehicle air conditioning system clean and smelling fresh again.
