Car Air Conditioning FAQS


South East Car Care are well placed to arrange all of your Vehicle Air Conditioner Re-gas, Repair, Service or Inspection needs

A car air conditioning system uses refrigerant to pull the heat from the air in the inside of the car to the outside, leaving only cooled or 'conditioned' air behind to be redistributed. It is important that the rubber seals are regularly scrutinised for any signs of leaks or decay which could be a sign of an ongoing loss of refrigerant.

To allow for this situation the refrigerant in your Automotive Air Conditioner should ideally be replenished completely within four years of the manufacture date and every two to three years after that.

You should bring your vehicle to a reputable workshop such as South East Car Care regularly to make sure the air conditioning system continues performing in top conditon as well as having the mechanics advise you on the condition of the whole vehicle.

Repco Authorised Service mechanics perform a 65 point Vehicle Inspection with every service and are usually able to give you a warning about any components that may need renewing in the near future or those that are already worn beyond repair.


South East Car Care care about the environment and can arrange automotive air conditioning service with a licenced technician.
