Air Conditioning Service


When should I use my Air Conditioning?

  • Many modern vehicles now come with an Air Conditioning and Climate control system. These systems are designed to last the lifetime of the vehicle, however they require regular maintenance to ensure they continue to work safely and efficiently.
  • Many drivers believe that their air conditioning is solely to cool them during the warm summer months and therefore the system lies dormant for long periods of time. This is the not the case, as your air conditioning system is equally as effective in the cold winter months to heat your vehicle as it is in the Summer.

Why should I have my Air Conditioning System Serviced?

  • When the air conditioning system in your vehicle is left unused for a period of time unpleasant and sometimes unhealthy odours can occur, encouraging the onset of sore throats and allergic reactions. This is due to the condensation in your system combining with the heat from the vehicle engine to create an environment where bacteria & fungi can grow.
  • Also, overtime your system will leak refrigerant gas. This gas actually cools the air that enters the vehicle & circulates the oil which lubricates the compressor, therefore it is an essential part of the system and requires to be regularly refilled.
  • When the gas used within the air conditioning system escapes it causes the air conditioning to run inefficiently, making the compressor work harder and increasing your overall fuel consumption.
  • Regular servicing of your Air Conditioning not only helps to prevent illness & allergies, it also ensures your vehicle runs more efficiently and saves you money.
  • To ensure your air conditioning system is working efficiently why not book your vehicle into McCabes to have the system tested.
  • To avail of our Air Conditioning Service by one of our skilled technicians please book on line.
