Car Air Conditioning FAQS


Hycraft Automotive are well placed to arrange all of your Car Air Conditioner Re-gas, Servicing, Repair and Inspection needs

A car air conditioner uses refrigerant to absorb the heat from the air within the interior of the car out of the vehicle, leaving only cooled or 'conditioned' air to be redistributed. It is important to evaluate the condition of the rubber seals regularly for any signs of leaks or damage which could point to a loss of refrigerant.

To allow for this the refrigerant in your Automotive Air Conditioning system should ideally be refilled completely within four years of the manufacture date and every two to three years after that.

Your car should be inspected by a reputable workshop such as Hycraft Automotive on a regular basis to make sure the air conditioning system continues performing efficiently as well as having the mechanics review the condition of the whole vehicle.

Repco Authorised Service mechanics perform a 65 point Vehicle Inspection with every service and are able to give you a warning about any components that may need replacing in the near future or those that are already damaged beyond repair.


Hycraft Automotive care about the environment and can arrange automotive air conditioning service with a licenced technician.
