Car Air Conditioning FAQS


Southern Highlands Service Centre are well placed to take care all of your Vehicle Air Conditioner Re-gas, Repairs, Servicing or Inspection needs

An air conditioner uses refrigerant to withdraw the heat from the air within the interior area of the vehicle out of the car, leaving only cooled or 'conditioned' air to be redistributed. It is important to inspect the condition of the rubber seals on a regular basis for any signs of leaks or wearing which could well be allowing a loss of refrigerant.

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

You ought to take your vehicle to a reputable workshop such as Southern Highlands Service Centre (AU42890) on a regular basis to make sure the air conditioning system continues performing at its best as well as having the mechanics assess the condition of the whole vehicle.

Repco Authorised Service mechanics perform a 65 point Vehicle Inspection with every service and can provide a warning about any items that may need to be renewed in the near future or those that are already damaged beyond repair.
