I have previously used Enfields branch of F1 autocentres. I have always been happy with the level of service provided. I would also like to say how great the 4 months interest free payment idea is. This helps us with spreading the costs of any work completed on our vehicle. This is a game changer and we will defiantly use Rayleigh's centre to service and MOT both our vehicles in the future. Thank you Rayleigh

Air conditioning

Colder weather often brings misty windscreens. Using warm or cold dry air from your Air Conditioning Unit can clear your screen in seconds, but to achieve this your system has to be working fully efficiently.

At Formula One Autocentres we offer 2 types of air conditioning services; Air Conditioning De-Mist and Air Conditioning Clean. These services will ensure that your car's Air-Con is working efficiently, also removing any unpleasant smells.

Both services are available to buy online at very competitive prices. Plus, if your air conditioning isn't cooler after the De-Mist, then the service is free of charge!

Air Conditioning Services
Air Conditioning De-Mist £45.00
Air Conditioning Clean £16.20

Air Conditioning De-Mist*

It is recommended that you should recharge your air conditioning system every 2 years with gas and lubricant, in order to keep it running efficiently. This is not included as part of a routine car service and so it can often be overlooked. If your car is more than 2 years old it is more than likely due a recharge.

Our De-Mist service ensures that your air conditioning system is working efficiently by testing the gas pressure to see if it has dropped. A drop in gas pressure will result in a loss of cooling efficiency which will make your engine work harder and in turn use more fuel.

Due to it's dehumidifying properties, when operating fully efficiently, your air conditioning system will also de-mist your windscreen more rapidly in cold weather. So, for comfort and safety's sake, book your Air Conditioning De-Mist now!

Our fully trained technicians will take a temperature reading from your air conditioning system; remove all the old refrigerant gas, oil and dye. They then clean the whole system and remove any moisture within. Once the system has been thoroughly cleansed our technicians will inject new oil, dye and refrigerant gas and take a temperature reading again to ensure that the De-Mist has made a difference to the cold air temperature.

This process will ensure that your air conditioning system is working to its full potential. If, however our technicians find that the De-Mist has had no impact on the air conditioning temperature then you will not be charged for this service.

Contact your nearest Formula One Autocentres for more information or book your next air conditioning De-Mist online today!

*R134A Gas only



Air Conditioning Clean

The air conditioning clean service removes all the harmful bacteria that can build up within the air conditioning system. By circulating a special cleaner through all air intakes and venting systems this service removes any unpleasant smells, leaving your car smelling clean and fresh.

It is recommended that this clean is carried out once a year, however if your car has an unpleasant odour then it may worthwhile getting in touch with your local Formula One Autocentres branch who will be able to provide advice.

To book this service please contact your Formula One Autocentres local branch or buy online today!
