Air conditioning is rapidly becoming standard equipment in modern cars, and it plays a valuable role in maintaining driver or passenger comfort and safety. Air conditioning systems should be serviced at garages every two years to keep them clean and working to maximum effectiveness. Our Orpington workshop can help in providing this service.
During the course of a year, an air conditioning system can naturally lose between 10% and 15% of its coolant gas, which can lead to poor cooling, corrosion, failure of the compressor and odour problems. At Church Hill Garage Ltd of Orpington, car repairs are available for every part of your vehicle including the air conditioning system.
If you’re noticing poor cooling, especially in hot weather, or if you’re experiencing bad smells, the windows are steaming up and you generally feel uncomfortable in the car, the air conditioning should definitely be checked by a skilled automotive technician.

We are always happy to check your air conditioning system with a visual inspection, which is provided without charge. As one of the most trusted independent garages in Orpington, we check the refrigerated air temperatures, the compressor and the clutch for performance.
Fresh Air Check with Antibacterial Cleansing
We will conduct the same performance checks as described above and also introduce an antibacterial disinfecting agent through the system to disperse allergens and pathogens.

We undertake the basic performance tests described above but take them to a more comprehensive level, checking the pressures in the system and removing air, moisture and refrigerant. We then recharge the system with lubricants and coolant to their prescribed levels. Our car repairs in Orpington, including air conditioning work, is always detailed.
