90% of all cars have air conditioning. Make sure you have it serviced regularly, failure to do so could result in it breaking down, consuming more fuel or lead to unpleasant smells in the car.

We don’t need to explain the comfort of stepping into a cool car when it’s sizzling hot outside. But studies have shown that it is also contributed to the overall safety of the vehicle. People who drive a car equipped with air conditioning and running at a comfortable temperature, have quicker reaction times and are more responsive on the roads. Its filter also contributes to better air quality in the car, as it prevents pollen and dust from entering the vehicle In wintertime, you can use it to quickly demist your windscreen.

It is advised that you have it regularly checked to prevent it from breaking down completely, which represents a considerable cost. An air conditioning system that doesn't work properly also leads to higher fuel consumption or can cause nasty smells in the car. There are two types of services: the yearly smaller check-up and the biannual service.

Our recommendations

  • Make sure you have it disinfected once a year. You should also have the filter changed on an annual basis.
  • Have it thoroughly serviced once every two years. This will avoid high repair costs of the whole system and prevent it from breaking down completely
  • Recharge your air conditioning system approximately every 20,000 km or every 2 years
  • Replace the cabin filter at each reload of your air conditioning system 
  • Standard Air Con regas is based on using R134a Gas and no other Gas should be used

Have used this place for years. Always great polite service and very well priced. Also very honest and not trying to up-sell work that doesn't need doing.

Jonathan Miller

Very happy with my visit today, MOT concluded with some action required, and they were happy to help but not in a pushy way. Price was good and certainly no feeling of being ripped off like other places in Bedford. Happy to recommend and visit again.
