By spending a small amount on an annual or bi-annual servicing you are limiting the risk of having to find a major fault, so avoiding service costs can end up being a false economy.

It can be common for car air conditioning refrigerant gas to leak naturally from all systems at 10 – 15% per annum. If that is left untreated, your fuel economy will be affected.

The compressor, which is powered by the engine and therefore using fuel, has to work harder. This costs you for using additional fuel to power the under-performing compressor.

In addition, the lower the refrigerant gas level gets, the greater the likelihood of an air conditioning system component failure.

Is your Air Conditioning or Climate Control failing to provide its original freshness? 

As your system ages, you may notice the freshness deteriorating. Whenever your air conditioning is operating, moisture in the air condenses on the system’s cold surfaces. Whilst most of the moisture drains harmlessly away. 

Avacs Ltd servicing facility means that systems can be maintained and checked. Problems and faults can be diagnosed and treated before they become too serious.

Our experience, knowledge and capability can ensure that your system is efficient and safe, avoiding future problems and excessive costs. Please contact us today to arrange a convenient appointment.

AVACS In The Media

Avacs advising listeners of Jeremy Vine on his BBC Radio 2 show

Renown for our experience and expertise. Media companies use AVACS for professional consumer guidance and advice in respect to vehicle air conditioning.

During the hot summer, BBC Radio 2 contacted AVACS asking if we could provide some expert car air conditioning knowledge.

Of course we agreed, and our very own Gary Osgood took part in the Radio 2 show with Jeremy Vine asking the questions and Gary offering clear guidance and opinion in response.

Furthermore Gary advised the shows phone-in listeners, answering their questions and guiding them with some appreciated advice.

In the July heat, this topical piece of the show proved very popular with listeners who had, or were having, similar experiences in the hot weather. Press the play button below to hear the opening extract from the show.

What sets AVACS apart from general car service garages?

The reasons why you should get your vehicle air conditioning, climate control or heating systems repaired and serviced by us

Fresh cold air from car climate control vents

Car air conditioning is a specialist business and in the wrong repairers hands, it can be an expensive one! 

AVACS, as true car air conditioning and climate control specialists have specific vehicle brand and product knowledge. Many years of experience that will save you overall, not cost you more in both repeated frustration and money.

When the ‘Jack of all trades’ replace parts like they are going out of fashion, you can be pretty sure that they don’t have a clue what is wrong with the system.

So at your cost, they just go ahead and replace everything. Hoping for the best until it is fixed, fixed for now or ‘partly fixed’ until the refrigerant gas they charged you for slowly leaks out again within a week or two!

However, our expert and SPECIALIST knowledge and experience will save you money, because we have most certainly seen the fault you have before.

We have all of the professional diagnostic equipment to test it. Furthermore, if it does need parts, we are one of the UK’s leading air conditioning parts warehouse.

Sometimes the fault is due to corrosion and/or degradation of one or more of the air conditioning pipes, thus causing the refrigerant gas to leak.

As true professionals, we have all of the specialist pipe making equipment and parts to make like-for-like, replacement pipes in-house. Especially useful if the original pipes are no longer available or have a protracted lead time from the car main dealership parts centres.

At AVACS we don’t do exhaust pipes, tyre fitting or battery changes and we are not an MOT centre.

We are proudly the UK’s leading car air conditioning and climate control specialists. We will therefore save you money by diagnosing and repairing your vehicle properly.

If you think it might be expensive to bring your car to a specialist such as us, think again.

Our diagnostic and repair services are by far a more cost effective way to get your car air conditioning, climate control and heating working efficiently again.

What our customer say

Mercedes ML350 – Air-conditioning Repair

If you have any sort of car air con issue go here first. Gary knows his stuff and will give you an honest appraisal of what needs doing and importantly what doesn’t. Mercedes told me I needed a new condenser for my 2012 ML350 at £850 fitted – Gary asked how they’d diagnosed that as he couldn’t see any uv dye in the system – he did a pressure test, added thr uv dye and regassed the system and then checked the following week that everything was OK – which it was. Saved me £720!!!!!!!

Audi S8 – Heating / Climate Control System Repair

I had an issue with my Audi S8 climate control, no heating function. Contacted a few ‘Audi independent specialist’ and had a sharp intake of breathe. After some research on line discovered AVACS, contacted Gary and discussed the situation. He did no hesitate in informing me would investigate and be able to identify the issue with a view to rectifying/repairing. Delivered the car to AVACS workshop where the diagnostics were carried and informed it would take about a day or so. This was a couple of weeks ago. The climate control is now working really well, both the heating and cooling operating exceptionally well. If you have issues I would contact AVACS and discuss your issues. A very efficient and professional company that I thoroughly recommend.

Google Review – 2019

Audi A6 air conditioning problem

Having been to a local specialist garage, the air conditioning fault persisted. I was informed that they would probably have to remove the dashboard; at this stage I decided to do some internet research and happened upon your website.

When I arrived you diagnosed the fault very quickly, without the need to remove the dashboard you managed to replace the faulty valve. At the time you asked whether the system had been recharged recently, when I replied yes you stated that like many garages not enough drying time had been allowed.

Subsequently you re-gassed and dried the system for a full 45 mins rather than the usual 15-20 mins as many garages do. The result is an air conditioning system that performs superbly.

I will be recommending the local garages to refer to you when they are presented with problematic air conditioning.

Excellent work well done!

Porsche 911 996 air conditioning problem

I have a 911 996 which needed its air con refurbishing. I was really impressed with Gary who tested, diagnosed and rectified the problem quickly and with no fuss, bang on budget and on time!

Since June when it was fixed I have experienced no problems whatsoever and for an a/c system that is viewed as not particularly effective within the 911 family, I have to say I am really impressed with mine – it is incredibly effective and very cool when required.

Excellent work well done!

Audi TT – Air-conditioning Repair

Having had my air con problem diagnosed by Audi (incorrectly as it turned out) I took my Audi TT to AVACS for what I hoped would be a less expensive fix.

AVACS diagnosed the problem properly and did fix it, new condenser and recharge, for a lot less than Audi were quoting. And they wouldn’t even have solved the real issue!

AVACS were brilliant in their service and subject knowledge, even got a decent loan car to use. I’m still waiting for Audi to respond properly to my complaint of miss-diagnosis and potential overcharging for work that never would have needed doing.

If you need your air con sorted properly go to the experts and that’s AVACS!

BMW 320 Air Conditioning Issues

I am delighted with the level of service and repair that I received at AVACS to repair my BMW air conditioning.

After being told by a BMW main dealer that I needed new parts at a cost of £800, it was a wonderful surprise to learn from AVACS that I only needed the air conditioning system serviced, and no major new parts were required.

I left my BMW with them for the afternoon and whatever they did has repaired the air conditioning like it is new, and the horrible smell it used to make has completely gone!

I am absolutely delighted with the all round service, courtesy, honesty and above all, the price.

With all the optional extras that were agreed before work commenced. It came in at a fraction of the BMW main dealer cost and far superior level of customer care and service!
