Vehicle Air-Con Regas and Recharge: 01744 808586
We offer car, van and truck air-conditioning regas and recharge in Merseyside.
At The FastFit Centre, we can offer performance testing to ensure no gas will be lost when we regas your vehicle.
A vehicle's air conditioning system will lose approximately 10% of its refrigerant every year, on average. Recharging the air-con means replacing this lost refrigerant. It's sometimes known as an air-con 'regas'. In many cases, manufacturers recommend you service your vehicle air conditioning every two years.
An air-con service includes:
- Air-con refrigerant recharge to manufacturers' recommended levels
- Replenishment of system oil
- Thorough checks for leaks, performance and temperature by ATA-trained technicians
- Evacuation of moisture and air from the system, plus refrigerant recovery
- Please note if your system needs anything repairing, such as leaks and failed components, these are not included in the cost of a service and you'll need to have these fixed separately.
Over two-thirds of all vehicles manufactured today come with air conditioning and climate control systems as standard. Many drivers experience the benefits of air con in their vehicle on a hot day but just like other parts of your vehicle, the air conditioning system also needs regular attention to ensure it continues to work efficiently and effectively. People often think air-con is solely used for cold air, however, this isn't the case. With many vehicles, it is used for the hot and cold air that blows in your vehicle.
Vehicle air conditioning systems can lose refrigerant gas over time, especially if they aren't used regularly, which means that they may not work as well as they should. This is why vehicle manufacturers recommend your air con system is recharged with gas and lubricant every year. This service is not part of routine vehicle servicing, so if your vehicle is more than a few years old, it’s due an air-con recharge service.
The FastFit Centre offers a complete air conditioning recharge service available at Merseyside service centre. Operated on a drive-in basis, appointments are usually available on the same day. However, for added convenience, you can book an appointment online just by clicking on the Book Your Mechanic Now button at the top of this page.
Did you know?
Air conditioning doesn’t just provide in-vehicle comfort during the hot summer months; it can also be used in winter to demist your windscreen. Air con systems create dry warm air rather than the normal humid air from outside, which can clear your windscreen much more quickly than your regular blowers.
If you are looking for an air-con centre based in Merseyside, look no further. Our technicians are available and ready to help get you cool... or even hot again; keeping your vehicles comforts at a premium.
Recharge at The FastFit Centre
The recharge process is quite simple and involves removing any old refrigerant gas and oil from your air con system before replacing this with the correct amount of new refrigerant and lubricant as per your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation. A vacuum test is also performed to ensure there are no cracks or damage in your air conditioning system that could cause the gas to leak out.
Within the time we have your vehicle we will fully finish the recharge process. Once this is completed you will once again have refreshing cool air on demand. Our trained technicians at The FastFit Centre will show you the difference in your air conditioning system before and after recharge. Air con systems 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. So if you need your vehicles air conditioning regassing in Bold we are just a phone call away.
Air Conditioning Cleaning
If there are bad odours coming from your air vents when you turn on your air conditioning then your car may also benefit from an air con clean, also known as a debug. Over time bacteria, mould and fungi can build up on the evaporator in your air con system which produces this unpleasant smell when switched on. In some cases, this can cause sickness and respiratory problems as bacterial spores are blown into the cabin of the vehicle and breathed in by the passengers.
The FastFit Centre offer an air con 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 air con system clean and smelling fresh again.
An air-con debug is available as an optional extra with us when you have your air con recharged. Please ask a member of the team for details regarding air con cleaning.
