Car Air Conditioning System Service
Car air conditioning repair and service need to be done approximately every two years. The main reason for this is to change the receiver dryer (filter) which collects moisture in the system, because this will eventually turn corrosive if not removed (very similar to the engine oil filter).
Special Service Types
Our auto mechanic can service a wide range of different air-con systems:
Cars, four-wheel-drives, utes, vans, trucks, buses,
tractors, headers, farm vehicles,
construction, forestry and heavy

Regular Air Conditioning Repair
It’s similar to the regular servicing of your car. It's recommended you have your air-conditioning checked every 12 months and serviced every second year. You don't want to have to replace it!
We also check the electrical side of your air-con system while servicing, to ensure everything is as it should be.
If you’re having problems with your car's air conditioning, we will check over its system to ensure everything is working as it should. We'll then give you an estimate, and plan of what needs to be done to keep your system working.
Mobile Electrical Service
Our mobile mechanic vehicle is equipped with all the tools we need to service or repair your car's air conditioning at your house.
We can come to you, or you can bring your vehicle in for an examination of the air conditioning system. We will let you know what work, if any, needs to be done to keep you cool & warm.

Your car's air conditioning pollen filters reduce pollen, dust, smog and other irritants coming into your vehicle. Keeping your evaporator clean is important, keeping the air you breathe clean.
Repair for Low Use Vehicles
Auto air conditioning repair needs to be done regularly to remain operating at their best. Some systems lose refrigerant over time (farm equipment that is only used for 2 months of the year) so servicing will include replacing refrigerant, to ensure the compressor is running as it should.
A system that is low on refrigerant can affect your fuel economy causing the compressor clutch to engage excessively (sometimes causing premature failure).
This service removes smells from your vehicle which can be caused by mould, mildew and other causes. We deodorize both your air conditioning system and any smells within the vehicle itself.
Auto air conditioning systems need regular servicing
Auto air conditioning systems need regular servicing and repair to ensure that the system is working at peak efficiency. A system low on gas or poorly maintained can increase fuel consumption.
In the same way that the rest of your car needs servicing and inspecting, so does your air conditioning. Just as engines need oil, so do air conditioning systems. Oil can be lost if small leaks go undetected, and lack of lubrication and servicing can lead to an expensive replacement. We recommend a full service every two years.
Our car air conditioning repair service includes the following:
- Inspecting compressor's mount and drive for security
- Drive belt check and change or service retention as necessary
- Condenser check for leaks or damage
- Checking the condition and routing of all hoses and wiring
- Replacement of the vehicles air conditioning system filter
- Compressor oil level check and top up as required
- Recover, vacuum and fully recharge system
- Carry out full system operational check to ensure no faults exist
- Replace cabin pollen filter if fitted
- Carry out full leak check of the system
Top 4 signs your car air conditioning needs repair:
The first warning sign is obvious: there is simply no air conditioning. If you're getting a whole lot of nothing or warm or hot air instead, you could have a problem with your HVAC system. The reason could be you may be out of refrigerant, you could have damaged cooling fans or even something simpler like vents or a cabin air filter clogged with leaves or other debris.
A trip to our auto mechanic quickly diagnoses the cause of the problem. Does it take longer than usual for the interior of your car to cool down? If yes, a visit to our mechanic is needed. There may be an insufficient amount of refrigerant in your car's air conditioning system due to leaks. If the problem is not addressed immediately, it could put it under a lot of strain.
The next warning sign to indicate your auto air conditioning needs repair is if noises coming from the system are irregular. If you turn on your car's air conditioning and hear banging, rattling or worse, it may be that debris are clogging up your fan unit that is causing those noises or a major part of the air conditioning system itself could be worn out and about to break. Once you start to hear some strange sounds coming from your car, our auto mechanic can perform the required air conditioning repair.
After running your vehicle's air conditioning for a while, you should see water drain out from the bottom of your car. This is perfectly normal and a good sign. However, if instead, you see water stains inside your vehicle, then you could have a problem.
Sometimes, the drain on the bottom of your car's air conditioning becomes damaged or clogged, causing the water back up. It will then flow into your vehicle typically pooling under the dash and near the front floor mats. Your air conditioning repair can be handled by our experienced car mechanic.
Switching on your air conditioning shouldn't be an unpleasant experience, but sometimes foul odours may start. This could be a big warning sign that there is mould growth occurring within the car's air conditioning. A bad smell should be taken care of immediately since mould can lead to respiratory problems and other health concerns.
