Air Conditioning Recharge and Service.

Make sure that you can rely on your air conditioning with a AMS Tyres and Autocentre recharge and service. Your car’s air con needs regular maintenance to ensure that it is functioning as efficiently as possible. Here at AMS we offer a complete air conditioning recharge service.

Car manufacturers highly recommend that your air conditioning is recharged every 2 years. As your car or van air conditioner is not checked as part of the MOT test and regassing is not typically included in your Service, it is vitally important to make sure that you include recharging as part of your regular vehicle maintenance routine.

Does My Air Conditioning Need Recharging?

If your AC is blowing out warm air or only works intermittently, an AC recharge can bring it back to life with cold air when you need it most on hot days and can also improve your fuel efficiency as there is less strain on the system and engine.

90% of all new cars have air conditioning. Make sure you have it serviced regularly. Otherwise, it could break down, consume more fuel or lead to uncomfortable smells in the car.

Air conditioning doesn’t just provide in-car 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.

Why Are There Bad Smells Coming From My Air Conditioning?

If there are bad odours coming from your air vents when you turn on your car AC, 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.

What can I do myself to protect the air conditioning system?

The best thing you can do to help your air conditioning system, is to respect check-up times.

In order to avoid fungi or bacteria, we advise you to turn off the air conditioning about five minutes before stopping your car. Leave the ventilator turned on. As a result, the evaporator will be completely dry, making it unattractive for fungi and bacteria.
