S & B Motors always recommend that you have your air-conditioning serviced regularly to ensure that your air-con system is running at maximum efficiency. Many people will use their air con system more in the hotter summer months, but it is also useful in winter as it helps keep your windows demisted by circulating warm, dry air throughout your vehicle, so anytime is ideal time to ensure your air conditioning is in full working order. Our Trained Technicians will drain and refill the unit and carry out a detailed inspection, to ensure your air conditioning performs at its best.
full air conditioning service and recharge
Around 10% of refrigerant gas can seep out of the air conditioning system each year. If there is insufficient refrigerant charge, not only can your system not operate effectively, but it could potentially lead to internal system damage. An air conditioning service involves recharging the system with gas and lubricant as well as removing all moisture and debris.
A full air conditioning service includes a refrigerant recharge and replacement of the lubricating oil as well as a full check of all system components. A recharged system will reduce your fuel consumption by putting less strain on the engine and keep you cool in summer and demisted in winter
the new refrigerant is finally here
Here at S & B Motors we have the ability to service both the older style gas (R134a) as well as the new refrigerant (R135yf).
R1234yf is a synthetic HFO refrigerant co-developed by DuPont and Honeywell as a successor to R134a for automotive air-conditioning applications.
Its global warming potential (GWP) is ultra-low, with a rating of less than 1. This means that one kilogram of R1234yf released to atmosphere has a significantly lower greenhouse effect than a kilogram of carbon dioxide. For comparison, R134a has a GWP of 1430.
air conditioning refresh
An air conditioning refresh is an anti-bacterial treatment which will completely cleanse the system, ensuring that you’re breathing fresh air in your vehicle and nothing else. An annually recommended treatment, it is especially beneficial for people with hay fever or asthma.
