Car Air Conditioning FAQS


Dowsetts Automotive Services are well placed to take care all of your Car Air Conditioner Re-gas, Repair, Servicing and Inspection needs

Automotive air conditioning uses refrigerant to withdraw the heat from the air inside the vehicle to the exterior, leaving only cooled or 'conditioned' air to be redistributed. It is important to undertake a regular check of the condition of the rubber seals for any signs of leaks or fractures which may well be allowing a loss of refrigerant.

For optimum performance the refrigerant in your Car Air Conditioner should ideally be replenished completely within four years of the manufacture date and every two to three years after that.

You should bring your vehicle to a reputable workshop such as Dowsetts Automotive Services (AU39181) regularly to make sure the air conditioning system continues performing at its best as well as having the mechanics evaluate the condition of the whole vehicle.

Repco Authorised Service mechanics perform a 65 point Vehicle Inspection with every service and can give you a heads up about any components that may need to be renewed in the near future or those that are already damaged beyond repair.


Dowsetts Automotive Services care about the environment and have Arctick Authorisation (AU39181) to reliably and responsibly conduct automotive air conditioning service in and around Albany and the surrounding areas.
