- Air-Con Re-Gas
PD Motor Repairs
More than just refilling the gas in your air conditioning or climate control system, at PD Motor Repairs in Leighton Buzzard we offer a complete vehicle air-conditioning maintenance service.
Before we begin refilling your air conditioning systems refrigerant to the manufacturer recommended levels we perform a thorough diagnosis, checking for leaks and testing the performance and cooling temperature of the system.
It is estimated a vehicle’s air conditioning system loses approximately 10% of its refrigerant every year. Most manufacturers recommend you service your vehicle’s air conditioning system every 2 years to keep it running at maximum efficiency.
PD Motor Repairs are one of the leading auto repair garages serving customers locally in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire.
We only employ highly qualified technicians and adhere to the strictest standards.
As well as keeping you cool in the hot summer a fully operational air conditioning system dehumidifies the interior air throughout the year, removing moisture and filtering dust, pollen and other potentially harmful particles in the air. If your air conditioning system is working at full efficiency it can also help reduce fuel consumption by putting less strain on the engine.
When we have a vehicle in for an air conditioning re-gas, we will always check to see how much gas is in the system first. If there is little or no gas left this will normally be because of a leak. We are governed by law and not allowed to re-gas a vehicle knowing there is a leak, as any gas escaping is harmful to the environment. The air conditioning system has several different components which can fail in various different ways. Using our diagnostic equipment and processes we can find the root cause of any leaks or problems as well as complete a routine re-gas, as required.
We offer an air conditioning purification service too. If you are experiencing any unpleasant or musty type smells inside your vehicle they may be caused by bacteria or mould in parts of the air conditioning system internally. Any such problems can usually be rectified with our intensive process, which cycles and re-cycles a specially formulated airborne product through all the air ducting and air conditioning evaporator. Unlike some other purification services which simply mask the underlying problem with a scented or perfumed coating layer, ours eliminates any mould or fungi in its path. The vehicle is left with its system cleansed and a pleasant aroma inside. Some customers choose to have the purification service carried out proactively on an annual basis for peace of mind.Did you know?
Bacteria and fungi can grow within a vehicle’s air conditioning system. When the air conditioning is switched on, bacteria can be blown into the cabin space for passengers to breathe in, which could cause flu-like symptoms, sick car syndrome and musty smells.
