Air Conditioning Servicing in Cambridge with Archdeacon Motors

Air Conditioning Servicing and Recharging in Cambridge

Many cars are now fitted with air conditioning and we are air conditioning service and repair specialists. It's important to get your air conditioning tested and serviced to ensure you can keep cool when you need to. Call us to make an appointment and if required we can collect and deliver your car to your home or office in the local area for a small fee.

We are no longer allowed to simply top-up your air conditioning system, instead we perform a full system and leak test to ensure there that the refrigerant is not being lost into the environment. Our full air con service costs just £45 (plus refrigerant gas) + VAT. This complex service comprises the following:

What causes the smell in my A/C system?
The origin of the smell is caused by fungus, bacteria and other microbes growing inside the evaporator core. The moisture-laden environment is very conducive to the growth of these organisms. As car makers downsize components to save space and weight this problem has been increased. Because the manufacturers made the evaporator smaller they also added more fins and packed them closer together to increase the efficiency of the evaporator. While this has made the evaporator more efficient it has also made it more prone to trap moisture that contributes to the growth of these organisms. We offer a full odour removal service using the latest research, tools and equipment. Contact us to find out more.

Does my car need an air conditioning recharge?
A working air conditioning system can lose up to 10% of it's refrigerant every year, so a 5 year old car may have lost half it's refrigerant seriously impacting on the performance of the system and damaging the components involved. You should regularly have the air conditioning systems serviced to reduce wear and tear on the components and help avoid potentially big repair bills. The latest regulations mean that we cannot simply re-charge a system, we have to perform a full leak test first.

Why should I get my air conditioning serviced?
Non-use of your air conditioning system and result in degradation of the seals. Regular air conditioning system servicing ensures the system is full of refrigerant, there are no leaks, that the pressure is correct and that the hoses, seals and pipes are all in full working order.
