Looking For A Car Air Conditioning Service and Regas?

Why Is My Car Air Conditioning Blowing Hot Air?

At Mercury Cars, based in Essex, we have over 30 years of experience in the maintenance and repair of your vehicles, including car air conditioning service.

Is your car’s air conditioning refusing to cooperate? Does your once-cool haven on wheels transform into a sauna the moment you turn on the ignition? Fear not, fellow road warriors, for relief is near!

We’ve all been there. Stuck in traffic, windows rolled down, the sun beating down like a vengeful hammer, and the car AC blowing out air that could only generously be described as “lukewarm.” It’s enough to make even the most zen driver turn into a road-raging dragon.

But before you start plotting revenge on your malfunctioning AC system, buckle up and dive into this blog, your one-stop shop for all things car air conditioning. We’ll diagnose the most common culprits behind those tepid vents, equip you with DIY maintenance tips like a seasoned mechanic, or better yet, point you towards our online booking system, as everyone needs a helping hand now and again!

Why is the air conditioning not working in my car?

Your car’s air conditioning works by manipulating the state of the refrigerant in the system to change the temperature. Over time refrigerant gas will dissipate leading to air conditioning which doesn’t do the job.

If you notice a musty or cheesy smell, low pressure from the vents and a failure to cool the cabin then your air conditioning requires a service. Most manufacturers recommend doing this every 12 to 24 months.

A car’s air conditioning system is a complex network of parts, so there could be several reasons why it’s not working. Let’s explore some of the most common reasons:

  • Clogged filter
  • Cooling fan issue
  • Radiator problem
  • You need to regas your air conditioner

We offer a comprehensive service at Mercury Cars. This includes a full inspection, leak testing as well as a recharge and regas with the option of an antibacterial cleaner to ensure your air conditioning is smelling fresh and fully functional again.

How do I get my car air conditioning to blow cold air?

Let’s say you’ve inspected your car, nothing is clogged, the engine is working fine etc. If you’ve got all the settings correct on your system, such as the dials turned to cold, or your AC button is on, and you’re still only getting blown with warm air. Then more than likely, the issue is that you will need to book your car into a garage for a ‘regas’.

What is a car aircon regas?

A car aircon regas, also known as an air con recharge is a really quick appointment, in which we simply swap out your car’s old refrigerant gas, and top it up with new refrigerant gas.
