Car air conditioning systems need regular servicing due to the natural ware and tear of the hoses and components of the air conditioning systems in modern vehicles. The refrigerant gas will leak slowly out of the A/C system at a rate of 15-20% per year, thereby making your system gradually less efficient until it finally stops working all together.
If you let your A/C system run out of refrigerant and then you don't use the system for several months the chances are that internal component seals will dry out and you will have leaks in your system when it is eventually re-gassed. This could be expensive!
Always ensure that your cars air conditioning system is in working order by running it on full cold at least once a week for a few minutes, even in the winter. It takes at least one hour to carry out a correct service and re-gas of car air conditioning systems for all inquiries and bookings please call us.At Claremont Auto Electrics, Air Conditioning and Mechanical Servicing we offer the following services;
- System pressure and vent temperature checks.
- Comparisons to recommended levels
- Full visual inspection
- Recovery of refrigerant
- Evacuation of air and moisture from the system
- Leak test
- Aircon servicing
- Recharging to recommended levels, adding fresh system oil and dye as necessary.
Odd smells coming from your air conditioning system? As your car becomes older, or when the air conditioning system is used infrequently, bacteria, micro-organisms, mould and fungi may start growing, just behind the dash panel on the evaporator, causing some very unpleasant odours.
This problem can be corrected by using an anti-bacterial treatment that destroys bacteria growth and replacing the cabin pollen filter. Leaving your car smelling fresh again. For all inquiries please contact us at any time.
Is your air conditioning running a little less efficiently than it used to? Maybe it stopped all together. Or perhaps you just wanted to get a service. You have found the right place.
Claremont Auto Electrics, Air Conditioning and Mechanical Servicing are ARC licensed air conditioning specialists. Every vehicle that comes in for air conditioning is thoroughly inspected and tested, ensuring there are no leaks or faulty parts within the system.
Air conditioning services are recommended every two years, however if you feel that the system is not running as efficiently as it was before, don’t put off getting it checked. An inefficient system could cause a much larger problem down the line.

Fuel injection is at the heart of your vehicle, and as such, it is responsible for dispensing the right amount of fuel into the system.
Over time, dirt and carbon build up around the fuel injection system and surrounding intake and combustion areas, which can result in poor running or lacklustre performance. Left unchecked could result cause further damage to the engine.

Generally high end European vehicles manufactured after 2001 have on board service interval indicators. In some cases on certain vehicles, they allow them to travel 30,000 km before telling you it requires a service.
Through our previous experiences and over the years of removing engine rocker covers to see the inside of an engine damaged and clogged up with oil sludge and carbon deposits affecting performance and fuel economy, it is clear that even the best fully synthetic oils and quality oil filters, need changing well before some of the 20,000 km- 30 000km oil change interval.
All vehicles run a higher risk of breaking down and wear out sooner without regular maintenance and service intervals. Depending on what all the different manufacturers and their log books state, the makes, models, year, fuel and drive type all factor in contributing the travel, wear and vehicles usage duration.
We at CAE recommend a maximum of 15 000km/ once a year service intervals which ever comes first, generally for European vehicles using full synthetic oil. On all other vehicles we recommend a maximum of 10 000km/ every six month service intervals which ever comes first
Remember, by the time the problems arise from excessively long service intervals and lack of maintenance your vehicle will be well out of warranty, not to mention the excessive costing to repair or replace the damage done.
