As per the video above...

We have been in the motor trade for many years providing our clients with top quality, professional services. One of our main services is mobile car air conditioning.

We take the pressure away from you when it comes to servicing your car air conditioning by coming to your home or work place to carry out the car air conditioning service, saving you time and stress of having to travel to a garage and then having to wait for an hour or so, then travel back again, so, rather than you travelling somewhere, why not have us come to you and at the same time you get a personal service too.

Did You Know….. that your car air conditioning system needs to be serviced on an annual basis, just like your car engine does. This way if any faults appear within this time, for example a noisy compressor, which could lead to contamination of the system or a possible leak leading to low pressure in the system making the compressor work harder thus using more fuel.

Did You Also know….. that your car air conditioning system loses between 15-20% of it's gas in a year and that it is recommended that you keep your air conditioning on all year round, even in the winter (yes you can use your air conditioning in the winter and also your heater at the same time)

Many people do not know or have never been told this!

Why is this?

There are many reasons why you lose this gas and one of them is through lack of use. Although the car air conditioning is sealed, there are a number of places where the gas can escape. Below you can see some images where corrosion has developed on pipe joints, seals and parts of the aluminium joints.www.mobile-car-air-conditioning.co.uk

The system is mainly made up of pipes and other components. These pipes are joined together and around these joints are special rubber neoprene seals. If these seals are left to dry out (because the compressor is not being used) then the gas which you have in your system will eventually leak out of these seals causing your car air conditioning to stop working, so it is extremely important to keep these seals moist as they rely on the oil which circulates with the gas to maintain a sealed joint.


Evidence of Corrosion



Signs of Condenser Damage and Leak

Below you can see some images of condensers where leaks have appeared and also where the cooling fins have worn out and have disintegrated.






As mentioned above, by not having the right amount of gas in the system will make the compressor work much harder than it needs to leading to increased fuel costs

www.mobile-car-air-conditioning.co.ukYour car air conditioning system has a pump (compressor) which drives the gas around your air conditioning system. Inside the pump there is oil, just like your car engine has oil, this oil needs to flow around the system in order to keep the pipe joints lubricated, as mentioned above. It is important to use your car air conditioning all year round in order to keep the compressor moving thus giving it less chance to seize up, potentially costing you hundreds of pounds to replace it.

There is one other reason for using the air conditioning all year round and this is to slow the growth of mould and fungus building up in the ventilation system (which we can treat) see Bacteria Treatment.

A Fact That Needs Clarifying…

Some people are afraid that the air conditioning uses too much fuel. Right and Wrong.

If you use your car air conditioning on the lowest fan setting then you won’t notice much of a difference in your fuel economy, however if you set the fan speed to maximum speed for a long period of time then yes you will use more fuel. This is no different to you leaving your windows open and causing a drag, this also uses more fuel.


We are fully compliant with the latest gas handling laws and hold an IMI award for gas handling.

For those of you who are interested to know what certain components of the air conditioning are and what they do please feel free to view the diagrams and brief information below.


Below is a diagram which shows the flow of gas/liquid.


Compressor (PUMP)




This is the compressor (pump) which is commonly referred as the "the heart of the system". The job of the compressor is to compress and drive the gas around the system.





The condenser is normally situated at the front of the vehicle. The high pressure hot gas leaving the compressor passes through the condenser which is then cooled with the cooling fan. As the gas is cooled it changes into a high pressure liquid.


Receiver Drier


As the high pressure liquid leaves the condenser it passes through the receiver drier. The main job of the receiver drier is to remove moisture and filter out dirt and should be replaced every time the air conditioning system has been disturbed, for example when the compressor or condenser has been replaced.
