Air Conditioning Services

At Formula One Autocentres we offer two types of air conditioning services; Air Conditioning Re-Gas and Air Conditioning Clean. These car air conditioning services will ensure that your car's air-con system is working efficiently all year round while also removing any unpleasant smells.

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

Air Conditioning Re-Gas*

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

Our Aircon Re-Gas 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 its dehumidifying properties, when operating fully efficiently, your air conditioning system will also de-mist your windscreen more rapidly in cold weather. 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 Re-Gas has made a difference to the cold air temperature. This process will ensure that your air conditioning system is working to its full potential. However, if our technicians find that the Re-Gas has had no impact on the air conditioning temperature then you will not be charged for this service.

*R134A Gas used at most Centres. R1234YF Gas available at selected centres. Additional charges may apply.

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 interior smelling clean and fresh. We recommend that this air con cleaning service is carried out once a year in order to keep your air conditioning system as clean as possible.

If you do notice any unpleasant odours inside your car, simply get in touch with your nearest Formula One Autocentre where we can advise further. Locate your nearest centre to book in your car air conditioning services, from air con checks to air con recharge now.
