Air Conditioning

At Autoworks we are unlike most other garages, we do not ‘dabble’ in air conditioning. We are trained and qualified air-conditioning technicians and have an expert air conditioning side of the business known as Bonair.


We not only carry our re-gassing, but offer a full diagnostics, servicing and repair service at our premises. In fact because we are fully trained and qualified Ac technicians we carry out a system pressure diagnostic automatically when carrying out a system re-gas, free as part of our service.


We can repair and manufacture most air-conditioning pipes and hoses saving you those expensive dealer pipe replacements.


We can also install full air-conditioning systems into vehicles.


We give value to our customers by offering a free AC re-gas if a leak is subsequently found after we re-gas a system (provided we carry out the necessary repairs)**

Not only this but we also have a Mobile Re-gassing Service available during peak months. (call 07976 782828 for Mobile Service)


Why service your air conditioning system?

Your cars air conditioning system will lose 10-15% of its refrigerant every year, this means that after 3 years your system (if not serviced) can be down by as much as 45% of its refrigerant. This makes the compressor run for longer therefore reducing your MPG.

Do you get a ‘Musty’ smell when using your Air-conditioning. This can be caused by a build up of fungus and bacteria within the evaporator core, this can emit a peculiar smell and sometimes lead to an allergic reaction in extreme cases. This is sometimes called ‘Sick Car Syndrome’. We can rectify this for you at relatively low cost, in most cases while you wait.


Did you know that your vehicles air-conditioning system has a filter called a receiver drier or accumulator, depending on the type of system your vehicle is fitted with. These have a 2 to 3 year life span, and only a 4 hour life span if open to atmosphere. If not replaced they can have dramatic effects on the service life of your system.


What a Basic Vac and Re-gas service of an air-conditioning system includes:


1. Removal of old Refrigerant

2. System Vacuumed and checked for Leaks

3. Oil and Dye added to system

4. System Recharged* with Refrigerant and temperature checked
