What does air conditioning do?
Your air conditioning system cleans, dries and cools the air in the cabin, giving you a comfortable driving environment.
In the summer, having a cool car makes for a better driving experience and using your air-con may be less expensive in terms of fuel usage than having your window open. In the winter your air-con will help you de-mist and de-humidify the car more quickly.
Why does my air-con need servicing?
Servicing the air conditioning system is not normally included in a standard service. It is important not to neglect this system as you may start to notice stale smells, and bacteria trapped in the system can aggravate allergies.
At Fast-Fit when we perform a full system re-gas we empty the system completely and refill it with clean gas to ensure your air-con stays fresher for longer.
Our IMI approved air-con technicians offer an all-year-round leak test and re-gas if needed, replacing refrigerant, PAG oil and UV dye (if necessary). It is estimated that around 10% of the refrigerant in your air-con system escapes every year so we recommend recharging your system every 2 years to keep it working at full capacity.
How much will it cost?
We offer a free air-con pressure check.
If, after a check, your vehicle requires a recharge, prices start from £59 inc. VAT.
Please note we are currently not able to provide an air-con re-gas service for hybrid or electric vehicles.
Where can I have my air conditioning system serviced?
Our air-con service is available at all our branches except for Salhouse Road in Norwich.
All of our branches excluding Salhouse Road can re-gas vehicles that require R134A gas.
We can only re-gas vehicles that use 1234yf refrigerant gas at our Reepham Road, King’s Lynn and Ipswich branches.
For the fastest response to any questions regarding air con re-gas, please speak to your local branch.
A full air-con re-gas will take between 40 minutes to an hour and can be completed while you wait.
