Aircon Service

TyrePlus knows that you require an aircon system that is in good working order year round. Our climate is too warm to not have some form of relief when we get into our vehicles. The hot humid air can be a nuisance and it's always nice to transfer from the outdoors into a vehicle that can be cooler. With an aircon system that is malfunctioning, you won't be able to get that nice blast of cold air. The staff at TyrePlus has been servicing aircon systems for years and know exactly what to look for when a system breaks down. We strive to fix the problems quickly so you can get on with your day.

What is Aircon Service?

Contrary to popular belief, aircon does not simply blow cold air into the vehicle. Air conditioning is designed to remove hot air from within the vehicle cabin and dispel it to the atmosphere outside the car. Because there is a fairly complex operation, there are a number of components that need to work together in order to operate effectively. These are components such as the evaporator, condenser and compressor to name a few. These are prone to general wear and tear and TyrePlus is equipped to maintain them.

TyrePlus' aircon service is designed with the customer in mind. We will take care of any issues that may be plaguing your system. Common items that may be involved in a vehicle aircon service include:

  • air vent temperature check
  • reclamation or replacement of operating gas
  • adjustment of drive belts and pulleys
  • check operation of valves and thermostats
  • check the receiver drier/filter
  • leak tests
  • clean condenser fins
  • deodorize and sanitize the system

Maintaining your Aircon

Because of our hot weather, proper aircon maintenance is very important. There are a few different things that can be done to ensure your aircon system runs smoothly at all times.

Running it to ensure all of the hoses, valves and pumps are all properly lubricated can help determine whether or not the system is running at full capacity. If you bring it in for service to TyrePlus, we can make sure the refrigerant levels are optimal. We will be able to fill your refrigerant to where it needs to be in order for your aircon system to work properly. You should also consider having your aircon serviced fully at least once a year. The warm weather can wreak havoc on the system and it will more than likely need an inspection semi-annually.

Another point to consider is the amount of bacteria and fungus that can appear in your aircon system. You will know if your aircon system is dirty if you can detect a musty smell every time you turn on the aircon. If your aircon system is dirty or crawling with bacteria, you are putting you and your family at risk for contracting airborne illnesses. TyrePlus is committed to your safety, and we would be more than happy to investigate your aircon system for any dirt, grime, or bacteria that may be affecting the air quality of your vehicle.

When your aircon system is on the fritz, you should bring it in to TyrePlus for a check-up.
