Your air con system could be hiding all sorts of nasty bugs. Condensation in the pipework combined with engine heat creates a breeding ground for bacteria and mould. Unpleasent odours are just the start. You could find your health affected with sore throats, sneezing and irritated eyes and don’t forget the potentially expensive damage to internal components that could be caused.
An air conditioning service and clean is recommended every 12 to 18 months to ensure efficient and reliable operation – delivering the desired temperature and air quality.

The smell is caused by fungus, bacteria and other microbes growing inside the evaporator core. The damp environment is perfect for the growth of bacteria. As air-conditioning units get smaller, evaporator design has become more prone to trap moisture. Cranmore Garage offer a full odour removal service using the latest tools and equipment. Contact us to get rid of the bad smell.
Your air-conditioning system can lose up to 15% of it’s coolant every year, so a 3 year old car may have lost almost half it’s coolant seriously impacting on the performance of the system and damaging the components involved. By recharging your air-conditioning systems you can reduce wear and tear on the components and help avoid potentially big repair bills. Contact us for air-con recharging.
Unless you regularly use your car’s air con the seals can seize. A typical car manufacturer service schedule only tests to see if the air conditioning works, it does not check that all the components are working properly and in full working condition. Air-conditioning system servicing ensures the system is full of coolant, there are no leaks, the pressure is correct and that the hoses, seals and pipes are all in full working order.
– In car checks for musty odours and excessive condensation. Clean the evaporation.

– Recharge the system’s refrigerant gas and replace oil removed during the evacuation.
