Frequently AskedQuestions

The general rule of thumb is that your vehicle's air-conditioning needs re-gassing every 1-2 years. The reason for this is because it's estimated that your car permeates between 10 - 15% of gas from the system every year; and that's before you've even used it!

The compressor is the core, primary part of every A/C system. If you want to stay cool, a working compressor is essential. The compressor pressurises the refrigerant that cools your air.

No. The air conditioning system in your vehicle is meant to be charged with just the right amount of refrigerant. If you add more than what's required, you'll risk damaging the system.

When you run the heating/cooling system in your vehicle, air passes over the evaporator. The evaporator is generally wet because of condensation. It, therefore, traps dirt and other contaminants from the air. This eventually gives rise to mould and other spores that release a foul odour every time you turn on the A/C. It's important to disinfect the air conditioning system periodically to kill nasty bacterial spores and breathe clean air.
