What do I do if my air con loses its cool?

If you suspect your air con system has stopped working, for example, it isn't blowing any cold air at all, or there's a strange smell coming from the outlets, then we'd recommend you get it checked out at your nearest Halfords garage.

Our expert technicians always carry out an air conditioning diagnostic check before we replenish the gas in your air con system. During the inspection, we’ll check the system for any faults or leaks and carry out the following procedures:

  • A temperature check
  • A refrigerant check
  • A thorough inspection of the system's key components, including the compressor, condenser, drive belts and hoses
  • A leak test (using nitrogen)

Once your air con inspection is complete, we can either re-gas and service your refrigerant for an additional cost or recommend any repair work that needs to be carried out on your air-con system to get it working again. We'll quote all prices up front too, so you won't get any nasty surprises before we start work.

During the re-gas, we replace the lubricant and refrigerant levels in line with your manufacturer's recommendation, to ensure it continues to give the best performance over time.
