The Airconditioner system relies on key components including a compressor, a condenser, an evaporator, pressurised refrigerant, valves and hoses all controlled electronically.
Your vehicle’s air conditioning system removes the heat from air inside your vehicle and transfers it to the outside air. The wonderful result is cooler, more comfortable air.
In order to maintain the integrity of your air conditioning system it is advised to make sure there is enough gas so as to not put strain on other components in the system.
To properly work, the system must have no leaks that might allow the refrigerant to escape. A/C systems are resistant to leaks and contamination, but they are not leak-proof. Over time, contamination or leaks can adversely affect cooling.
To keep your vehicle cool, we recommend having your A/C system checked at the beginning of the warm season.
It is important to note that some refrigerants used in automotive A/C systems are considered harmful to the environment. At Bondi Mechanical, we take great care to protect the environment while we are servicing the your system.
• Visually inspect A/C components
• Run performance test including:
• System state of charge test
• System control test
• Perform leak test using approved electronic leak detector
• If a slow leak cannot be detected, a dye detection service may need to be performed.
