We operate from one of the most reputable local garages, undertaking car repairs for private, trade and fleet customers who welcome the many benefits associated with having all of their servicing and maintenance needs met by a single company.

Most vehicle manufacturers recommend that air conditioning systems are checked and re-charged every 2 to 3 years; this helps to ensure passengers remain comfortable while the system stays "cold" and works effectively. An efficient air conditioning system helps keep vehicle temperatures at an appropriate level, and also helps to improve the fuel economy and performance of a vehicle while the air conditioning is being used. At Ferndale Autos, we provide a car air conditioning re-gassing service to restore optimal functionality.

What is Re-gassing?
Your car air conditioning system can lose up to 10% of its gas every year. If the gas level is not refilled, the system won’t be able to function as effectively. When temperatures are soaring outside, your air conditioning will not be able to keep you as cool and as comfortable as it would if it was fully charged. Low gas levels will also reduce vehicle performance.

Re-gassing involves removing all the old refrigerant gas in the system, and replacing it with new gas. If you have noticed that your system is not blowing cold air through and it has been a long time since you have had it re-gassed, it should be your first choice of action.

Why is Re-gassing Important?
Without re-gassing, your air conditioning system will ultimately become less efficient. Having an inefficient system leads to increased fuel consumption and, eventually, your air conditioning will stop working; this can result in replacement parts or car repairs being needed, and adds to the cost of driving for Brixton and Clapham motorists.

What About Air Conditioning Servicing?
Car conditioning systems that are not cleaned and serviced can begin to harbor potentially dangerous allergens and pathogens. This can present a danger to drivers in Brixton, Clapham and South London as well as to their passengers.

These allergens and pathogens are even associated with the onset of asthma. Investing in semi-regular car servicing at a reputable specialist is therefore recommended by manufacturers; Ferndale Autos does not currently offer car air conditioning servicing, just re-gassing.
