Air Conditioning & Climate Control

Maintenance And Repair Services

Automobile Air Conditioning & Climate Control (Hot/Cold). The Air Conditioning system main job is to remove heat from the interior of the vehicle. Over time all air conditioning system accumulates moisture and contaminants.

Several reasons can cause your car climatic control (hot/cold) air faulty operation. The most common cause of poor air conditioning performance is a low refrigerant level. Because refrigerant is a gas, it escapes easily through worn valve seals and o-rings as well as through deteriorated hoses and damaged components.

Your system can lose 10% efficiency every year, reducing cooling performance and increasing fuel consumption. A system running on low refrigerant will inevitably lead to major component failure. Repairing small leaks in advance could save on large, costly repairs in the future.

Periodic maintenance for your vehicle's air conditioning system is essential to avoid mould and bacteria growth. Moreover, to keep the air conditioner at its peak performance level and protects against expensive repairs, the important points that we ideally check in spring season:
- Condenser the exterior part annual cleaning in order to remove debris (such as dead leaves) that may have infiltrated it.
- Passenger compartment cabin air filter should be changed.
- Ventilation system bactericidal treatment.

- Air conditioning no longer produces the same freshness as before.
- An unpleasant smell is released when you turn on the air conditioning.
- The air conditioning produces abnormal noises such as clicking.
- Noisy drive belts when you turn on the air conditioning.
- You notice excessive fogging on the windshield.

Most manufactures recommend checking the Air Conditioning & Climate Control every 24 months or 24,000 miles (48 thousand kilometres).

Expert Advice

  • Off-Road Driving

    When driving Off-Road, it is essential to maintain comfort inside the vehicle, which includes keeping the air conditioning and heating system functioning properly. Here are some tips to keep your air conditioning and heating system in good condition while driving Off-Road:

    Preventive Maintenance:
    - Before you go on an off-road excursion, make sure your air conditioning and heating system is working properly by performing a bump test. If you notice any problems, have the system repaired before leaving.

    Debris Protection:
    - Install a protective grill on the front of the vehicle to protect the air conditioning condenser from debris, rocks and branches that can be thrown onto the Off-Road road.

    Hose And Lines Inspection:
    - Check the air conditioning and heating system lines to make sure they are not damaged or blocked. Damaged lines can cause leaks or poor air circulation.

    Component Protection:
    - Ensure that air conditioning and heating system components, such as the compressor and fan, are properly protected against shock and vibration. Install sturdy supports if necessary.

    Overheating Prevention:
    - Monitor engine and cooling system temperatures while driving off-road. Avoid overloading the engine and use the heater sparingly to avoid overheating.

    Cleaning After Off-Road Trip:
    - After each off-road excursion, clean the exterior of the vehicle thoroughly to remove dirt, dust and debris that could clog air conditioning and heating system components.

    Moderate Use:
    - Use air conditioning and heating sparingly to save energy and extend battery life. If possible, use passive heating instead by adjusting the vents.

    Regular Maintenance:
    - Perform regular maintenance on the air conditioning and heating system, including replacing cabin air filters and inspecting components for leaks or damage.

  • Service Tips

    When you drive, especially in extreme weather conditions, your vehicle's air conditioning and heating system is essential to your comfort and safety. Here are some tips for maintaining and efficiently using the automobile air conditioning and heating system:


    Regular Inspection:
    - Have your air conditioning and heating system inspected periodically by a professional for leaks, blockages or malfunctions.

    Air filter Replacement:
    - Replace the cabin air filter regularly to maintain air quality and ensure efficient operation of the ventilation system.

    Cleaning Air Ducts:
    - Clean the air ducts of the ventilation system to remove dirt, dust and allergens that could accumulate there and compromise air quality.

    Compressor Inspection:
    - Check air conditioning compressor condition regularly to make sure it is working properly and not leaking.

    Refrigerant Level Check :
    - Make sure air conditioning system refrigerant level is adequate. Insufficient level can result in poor air conditioning performance.

    Heating Test :
    - Test heating system periodically to ensure it is working properly, especially before the winter months.

    Effective Use :

    - When the car is parked in the sun on a hot day, pre-cool the interior by opening the windows or using the ventilation before turning the air conditioning on to full blast.

    Economical Use:
    - Avoid using the air conditioning on full blast all the time. Instead, use economy modes or fan-only settings when conditions permit.

    Recycling Mode:
    - Occasionally use air recirculation mode to reduce the amount of outside air entering the vehicle. This can help save energy and keep the interior cooler.

    Effective Demisting:
    - To quickly defog the windows in cold or wet weather, use the heater with the ventilation directed toward the windshield. Also activate the rear defrost for better visibility.

    Cleaning Air Vents:
    - Make sure air vents are not blocked by objects or dirt, which could impede air circulation and reduce the system efficiency.

    Proper Temperature Setting:
    - Set heating or air conditioning temperature to a comfortable level for you and your passengers, while avoiding extremes that could overload the system.

  • What Our Technicians Do

    When our technicians handle a vehicle's air conditioning and climate control, they perform multiple tasks to ensure the heating and cooling system is functioning properly, as well as the comfort of passengers. Here's what they typically do:

    Visual Inspection:
