Car Air Conditioning FAQS


Adelaide Hills Mechanical & Tyre Service are well placed to take care all of your Automotive Air Conditioner Re-gas, Repair, Inspection or Servicing needs.

A car air conditioner system uses refrigerant to pull heat from the air within the interior of the car out of the car, leaving only cooled or 'conditioned' air to be recirculated. It is important to regularly appraise the condition of the rubber seals for any signs of leaks or fractures which may well be allowing a loss of refrigerant.

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

You should take your vehicle to a qualified workshop such as Adelaide Hills Mechanical & Tyre Service (AU03913) on a regular basis to make sure the air conditioning system continues performing in optimum conditon as well as having the mechanics advise you on 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 renewal in the near future or those that are already damaged beyond repair.


Adelaide Hills Mechanical & Tyre Service (AU03913) care about the environment and have Arctick Authorisation to reliably and responsibly conduct automotive air conditioning service in and around Bridgewater and the surrounding areas.
