GET YOUR CAR'S AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM READY FOR SUMMER Many vehicles now come fitted with an air conditioning or climate control system to keep the car cool in summer and remove moisture from the air in both summer and winter. While these systems are designed to last the lifetime of the vehicle, they require regular maintenance to ensure they continue to work safely and efficiently. At Smiths Vauxhall Ilkeston & Peterborough we have the specialist knowledge, training and tools to keep the air conditioning system fitted to your Vauxhall in factory-fresh condition.​​

Air Conditioning Refresh - Only £29

You car's air conditioning system is the perfect place for bacteria, mould, fungi, and other micro-organisms to grow as moisture can accumulate and parts of the system are warm. In mild cases this can cause unpleasant smells to enter the car's cabin, in more serious instances it can cause irritation of the nose, throat and eyes, and in worst cases can affect breathing.

Our Air Conditioning Refresh prevents these issues before they happen, or help alleviate these problems where they exist, by fully checking and cleansing the system as follows:

  • Clean the system using an anti-bacterial cleaner to remove the build up of micro-organisms that can be detrimental to health and cause unpleasant smells inside the car.
  • Test the system's ability to cool the air using a temperature sensor and compare this to factory standards.
  • Fully check the system for faults to reduce the chance of issues developing in future.

We recommend having your car's air conditioning system refreshed annually to keep it in top condition and avoid microbial build-up.

Air Conditioning Service - From Only £69*

Air conditioning systems lose approximately 10%-15% of their refrigerant each year - This can reduce its performance (meaning it cannot cool the car as effectively) and increase your car's fuel consumption as the system has to work harder to make up for the lost refrigerant.

In addition to the work carried out for an Air Conditioning Refresh, our Air Conditioning Service involves the following:

  • Drain the system of all remaining refrigerant.
  • Refill the system with refrigerant to the optimum level and test.

Upon receipt of your booking, we will provide you with a personalised, no obligation, quotation for carrying our an air conditioning service on your car, as this will vary by model. At this point you can choose to confirm whether or not to go ahead with the booking.

Vauxhall recommends that your air conditioning system is fully serviced every 2 years.
