Car Air Conditioning FAQs


Collie Auto-Tech are well placed to take care all of your Car Air Conditioner Re-gas, Repair, Servicing and Inspection needs

A car air conditioning system uses refrigerant to take the heat from the air in the interior of the vehicle outside, leaving only cooled or 'conditioned' air behind to be redistributed. It is important to evaluate the condition of the rubber seals regularly for any signs of leaks or problems which could point to a loss of refrigerant.

To avoid this issue the refrigerant in your Automotive Air Conditioning system should ideally be refilled completely within four years of the manufacture date and every two to three years after that.

Your car should be inspected by a reputable workshop such as Collie Auto-Tech (AU08203) on a regular basis to ensure the air conditioner system continues performing in top conditon as well as having the mechanics check the condition of the entire car.

Repco Authorised Service mechanics perform a 65 point Vehicle Inspection with every service and are often able to provide a warning about any items that may need to be renewed in the near future or those that are already damaged beyond repair.


Collie Auto-Tech (AU08203) care about the environment and have Arctick Authorisation to reliably and responsibly conduct automotive air conditioning service in and around Collie and the surrounding areas.
