Airconditioning in your vehicle offers you comfort and safety in every season. A comfortable temperature in the Summer gives you a higher level of concentration and using the air con in Winter avoids misty windows. It is of great importance to keep your air con working at optimal level. A regular check is necessary and it also prevents damage to your car.
Do you want to know what your current state of your air con is? Visit VARC for a free air con check. You are welcome to drop without an appointment. See our location the appropriate page.
Turn the air conditioning on ensuring that it is not set to economy mode. When you first get into a hot car, open the windows, ensure that the air vents are set to face level and the system is set up to do the same, not pointed at your feet. Remember cold air falls. Turn the temperature to as low as it will go, and the blower as high as possible. Also, make sure that the air is on ‘recirc’ mode and not taking air from outside. Better to cool already cooled air !! When the temperature is more comfortable, close the windows and increase the temperature to a more suitable level as well as decreasing the blower speed. You should also point the air vents upwards to ensuring the cold air flows down again.
What our clients say about us...
Great experience in a friendly and professional environment. Richard is a gentleman and even took the time to explain quite clearly how the whole process works and gave me some advise on how to use air-con properly, this level of service is unfortunately quite rare these days. No problem recommending.
Brilliant service!! I had my A/C system serviced here lately after I needed to get condenser replaced. Full vacuum, pressure/leak test, new refrigerant along with added dye to make detecting leaks easier in the future - all for a very reasonable price. It makes a big difference when everything is done in front and explained clearly while you wait. These guys are very helpful also.
I really recommend. My air conditioning had not been working for awhile and after a quote of 400€ from another garage, I came here. My air conditioning was working after 20 minutes and the cost was a third of what I could have been charged at another garage. He was also very accommodating offered water/tea and chairs for people who were waiting. 10 out of 10
A gent of a man, very knowledgeable. Had my 12 year old car sorted in 30mins. Great value for the professional service provided.
Richard was a gentleman in every sense of the word, very informative and knowledgeable, the job at hand took no more then 20-25 mins. My wife and I could not be happier and we will be back again.
Had my car's air-conditioning system cleaned and filled today. Great service, very knowledgeable, efficient and friendly. I recommend them completely.

Serviced AC of my 07 Corsa, was completely empty and hadn’t been used for a long time. Got appointment the same day I called and was serviced in 30 minutes or less. Drive back home was a lot more pleasant in this hot weather! Very reasonable price also. Thanks!
Very good service & reasonably priced. Richard is a sound guy and he had me sorted in no time. Would definitely recommend.
Great service, the owner is sound and very efficient so you're in and out in no-time. Definitely recommend.

Richard is a gentleman, very professional service and everything was explained along the process of getting my air con fixed, couldn't recommend anyone better 👍
Same day service, My Mazda3 air conditioning is now working perfectly. Service well done. I Would really recommend...Super stuff. Thanks
Air con working 100% again on my daughters car. Rang first to get information and organised a time . Arrived on arranged time, had to wait a small bit as the garage was very busy (always a good sign). Car was connected up to machine and only took 20 minutes. Comprehensive Print out afterwards of work carried out on car. Top class service from Richard.
Don't waste time with the cheaper options, if you want it done right go to Vehicle Air-conditioning Repair Centre.
Definitely recommend. Took my 2008 S5 there recently. He appraised the AC system honestly. Provided great info and got the ac sorted in no time. If you want a good job done, then go to a specialist!
Richard is absolutely brilliant, he slotted my car in an aircon recharge really quickly and he was so easy to deal with. I was delighted that he takes card payments and his premises is really easy to find.
I couldn’t say enough about Richard and how knowledgeable he is, my air conditioning has never worked as well. Thank you Richard!!
