Star-Tec Engineering – Car Air Conditioning Servicing
Keeping your car cool, calm and collected
Air conditioning services that you can trust
We can take your vehicle in for an air conditioning service. Doing this will allow you to stay cool in your vehicle during the warmer months of the year. Our highly-qualified technicians can service your air con system in a timely manner and will ensure that it's working properly. (Fun fact: This isn't included in a regular vehicle service, so, it's important to get it checked at the right intervals.)
What is an air conditioning service and is it important?
Air conditioning services are like MOT tests but specifically for air cons - they ensure that everything in the system is running okay and that enough cool air is being produced. It's recommended that you should get your vehicle's air con checked every two years to keep it in the best possible condition.
Air cons are generally not used for at least half of the year during the colder months as it's not necessary. During this time, it's thought that 20% of the vital refrigerant gas and lubricant will escape through the vents, resulting in your air con not working properly. However, our mechanics are trained to spot any damage and fix your air con.
What happens during an air conditioning service?
Your vehicle will be left in good hands with our team in Chessington, who will work efficiently and in a timely manner. We'll restore all the vital gases and give your air con system a deep anti-bacterial treatment that will stop bacteria from growing on the vents. This service will leave your vehicle air con feeling refreshed.
We promise to keep your air con clean too
Aside from cooling your vehicle cabin in the summer - your air con also stops pollen, dust and other debris from entering your cabin through its filter system. This leads to a build up of dirt over time, so, during this service, we can carry out an antibacterial clean. Doing this will keep the cool air flowing into your vehicle when required.
