Car Air Conditioning Essex

If you have your car long enough, eventually things will start to go wrong, or not perform as well as they once did.

And in most of these cases, we’ll get it fixed as soon as we can – you can’t drive with a flat tyre, after all.

But one thing people often put off getting fixed is their air con, especially when the weather is cooler. Perhaps they see it as an unnecessary expense on something that they can do without, or maybe they feel like they just don’t have the time to go and get it fixed.

But as well as allowing you to regulate the climate inside your car, air con can also make driving that much safer (more on this later), which is why you shouldn’t wait too long to get it fixed.

And at RJ Harvey, we provide the very best servicing in car air conditioning Essex. By providing an expert and speedy service at competitive prices, we help you get back on the road in comfort in no time at all. So if your car’s aircon isn’t working as well as it once did, why not get in touch and let us take a look?

    What is car air conditioning?

    Car air conditioning is a system within your car that helps you regulate the temperature inside your car through the production and release of cold air. Now standard in virtually every modern car, it has become a feature that contributes to both a more pleasurable and a safer journey

    How do I fix my car’s air conditioning?

    A good first step will always be to take your car into a reliable local garage. Usually, fixing your car’s aircon is a relatively simple fix, and often it will just need to be regassed. This isn’t always the case though, which is why it’s useful to have a professional take a look at it.

    If you do think that a simple regas will fix any issues you’re having with your car’s aircon, then it is possible for you to do this yourself. However, there are several reasons why we would recommend you leave it to a mechanic unless you’re a professional yourself, or have a decent amount of experience.

    Firstly, the price of buying a regassing kit online is only slightly less than what you’d pay for a local garage to do it for you.Secondly, there’s a small chance that you carry it out incorrectly, and thirdly, it’s possible that this won’t fix your air con issues. In either case, you’ll likely have to ask a mechanic to take a look at it anyway, meaning you’ve lost out on time and money, something you could have avoided if you’d taken it to your local garage initially.

    Why do I need car air conditioning?

    When our car’s aircon stops working, most of us think about those hot days when being in the car can become unbearable due to the high temperatures. But providing you with a more enjoyable drive by keeping your car cool on hot days isn’t the only use of a car’s air con.
    It’s also extremely useful on colder days. When it’s cold outside, the inside of your windscreen is much more likely to mist up, which can cause a driving hazard. Luckily, air con can help solve this problem.
    By blowing cool, dry air on the windscreen, the moisture in the windscreen will dissipate, causing the mist to clear up and allowing you to continue driving safely.


    How much does it cost to regas my car’s aircon? 

    Prices will vary from provider to provider, and will be slightly cheaper if you do it yourself. However, you can expect to pay between £50 and £200 to regas your car’s air con.

    How long does it take to regas a car’s aircon?

    If it’s being done by someone who knows what they’re doing, it will usually take around 45 minutes to regas your car. However, this can take longer if you’re doing it yourself and haven’t done it before.
