My Car AC Blowing. Hot Air Repair and Fix HAE Rockhampton

A regas without a leak test won't give you cold air. If you need a regas, you have a gas leak, and that needs to be located and fixed before we add gas.

It is important to ensure the safety of your vehicle's air conditioning system and the gas used in it. In Queensland, the gas used in the system is regulated by law to prevent any potential risks. It is not recommended to let untrained individuals perform any work on your air conditioning system or use unapproved gases as it can lead to significant safety hazards and costly damages.

Snippits of Information About Car Air-conditioning Rockhampton

Your Car Air-conditioning Service & Regas.

Our comprehensive 31-point service and re-gas package is priced at $150. This service includes thorough inspections of the engine bay, and vehicle interior, and a full check of the A/C system.

We utilize our specialised A/C refrigerant recovery stations to measure the refrigerant gas in your system and verify that your refrigerant loss is within the acceptable range of 10-20 grams per year.

Afterwards, we use a vacuum to eliminate any moisture that may have infiltrated your system. Moisture is a significant contributor to system corrosion, thus this step is crucial!

At last, we can replenish your system with the appropriate level of oil and refrigerant according to the manufacturer's specifications.

Please be aware that it is not only poor practice but also illegal to recharge an automotive A/C system that has a known leak. Hence, we follow a policy of conducting a thorough inspection and leak testing of every vehicle before adding refrigerant gas to the system.

Automotive Air-conditioner Compressor Replacement.

An automotive compressor can fail for a number of reasons but when it does there are no shortcuts to fixing your system.

If the compressor fails, it can spread small metal particles throughout the system, leading to blockages. As a result, it is standard practice and a warranty requirement from compressor manufacturers to replace the thermal expansion valve (TX valve) and receiver drier, and thoroughly flush the system to remove any contaminants whenever a new compressor is installed. We adhere to these industry procedures and warranty requirements as a minimum standard to ensure that your system is repaired to the highest level of quality. You can have confidence in our work.

The air conditioning compressor in your car is commonly known as the "heart" of the air conditioning system. Its main function is to compress refrigerant gas and circulate it to the condenser for cooling, ensuring that the entire system is functioning properly.

Automotive Air-conditioner Evaporator Replacement

As air-conditioning systems become smaller and more efficient, their components are also shrinking. The evaporator, which is located under the dashboard, is an example of a component that has significantly decreased in size over time. It functions similarly to a radiator and is responsible for eliminating heat and moisture from the cabin.

Sometimes, evaporators can develop leaks from both internal and external corrosion, and if this happens, they will need to be replaced. The duration of this repair can vary from one to ten hours, depending on the car model and whether or not the dashboard needs to be removed to reach the evaporator.

Our team is highly skilled and knowledgeable in replacing evaporators, a common culprit behind air conditioning issues.

The evaporator in your car's air conditioning system serves to convert refrigerant liquid into gas, which in turn removes heat from the air and delivers cool, refreshing air to the cabin. It's worth noting that cold cannot be generated, but by removing heat, the temperature of the air decreases.

Automotive Air-conditioner Condenser Replacement

Your vehicle's air-conditioner condenser is situated at the front of the radiator and its primary function is to eliminate heat from your AC system. This involves the heat that has been transferred from the in-cabin air through the evaporator.

The condenser is composed of two end tanks that face each other, with aluminium tubes that are parallel and surrounded by aluminium fins in between. Although this unit is highly efficient at eliminating heat when it is clean, it can get clogged with dirt and road grime, which can decrease its performance and lead to bigger issues in the system. When we service your air conditioner, we will clean the condenser and examine it for any leaks. If it is leaking, a replacement will be necessary.

The air-conditioner condenser of your car is located in the engine bay in front of the radiator. Its function is absolutely crucial in converting the refrigerant from gas to liquid form.

Automotive Air-conditioner Custom Hose Manufacturing

In automotive air conditioning systems, rubber hoses are utilized to connect various components in the system. This is done to absorb vibrations and engine movement.

These hoses utilise a crimp fitting that connects the rubber hose to metal component fittings. However, due to their design, these hoses are prone to leaking at the crimp joints or developing holes from contact with other components.

If that is the case, we can manufacture a brand new hose using our state-of-the-art equipment, right here in our workshop. This option is typically more cost-effective than buying a replacement from the original equipment manufacturer, which means we can save time for ourselves and save money for you!

Treatment for Automotive Air Conditioner Odor.

If you're experiencing a bad smell coming from your A/C vents, our special treatment can help you get back that fresh car scent. But please keep in mind, this solution might not work for every situation. In case there's some debris that has accumulated and blocked the evaporator fins, we might have to manually remove the debris and clean the evaporator to completely eliminate the issue.

The evaporator is situated inside your car cabin, behind the dashboard, and plays a crucial role in eliminating heat and moisture to create a cooling effect. However, when you park your car, the evaporator still retains moisture and dust particles from the air, which can lead to the growth of bacteria causing unpleasant smells and odours. This issue can worsen if your car has collected leaves or other debris that has passed through the air vents.

Our odour treatments are tailored to match the strength of the smell. Typically, we use a hospital-grade bacterial treatment to eradicate the odour. The treatment is dispersed through an evaporator, making it a straightforward and affordable procedure. However, this process cannot be carried out in isolated situations.

Clearing the Drain Tube of an Automotive Air Conditioner

Finding the drain tube is essential because it helps remove excess moisture or water from the air in your vehicle's cabin. The tube can be found beneath the evaporator and should be checked during every air conditioning service.

If dirt or leaves get into your evaporator box, it can clog the drain tubes and cause water to accumulate on the floor of your car. Depending on the level of debris in the box, fixing this issue can be either a quick and easy task or a more complicated one.

If you have noticed that the floor of your car is damp or saturated, we can inspect it and inform you of the necessary steps to fix it.

Optimising the performance of your vehicle's A/C

Do you own a vehicle manufactured before 1997? If you haven't had the Air-conditioner checked, chances are it runs on refrigerant gas R12, which is no longer available due to its harmful effect on the ozone layer. But don't worry, we can assist you with a retrofit. This process involves replacing the system filter, o-rings, and oil to make it compatible with the new refrigerant. It might be more affordable than you think! Give us a call for additional information.
