Car Air Conditioning FAQS


Petrie Mechanical Repairs are well placed to take care all of your Vehicle Air Conditioner Re-gas, Inspection, Repair or Servicing needs

Your car air conditioning system uses refrigerant to take the heat from the air in the passenger area of the car to the outside, leaving only cooled or 'conditioned' air to be recirculated. It is important to evaluate the condition of the rubber seals regularly for any signs of leaks or weakness which may well be allowing a loss of refrigerant.

To avoid this issue the refrigerant in your Car Air Conditioning system should ideally be recharged completely within four years of the manufacture date and every two to three years after that.

You should bring your vehicle to a qualified workshop such as Petrie Mechanical Repairs (AU36361) on a regular basis to ensure the air conditioner system continues performing in top conditon as well as having the mechanics appraise the condition of the whole vehicle.

Repco Authorised Service mechanics perform a 65 point Vehicle Inspection with every service and can warn you about any items that may need to be replaced in the near future or those that are already worn beyond repair.


Petrie Mechanical Repairs (AU36361) care about the environment and have Arctick Authorisation to reliably and responsibly conduct automotive air conditioning service in and around Petrie and the surrounding areas.
