Air conditioning is essential during the warmer months and we are all used to the comfort it provides on a hot day. That’s why when something goes wrong, you will soon realise just how much you and your passengers depend on your Porsche’s air con. Here at Porsche Conversions, Essex, we are now providing full air conditioning servicing, repairs and recharges to ensure your system is always in full working order.
How does it work?
The air conditioning in your Porsche is comprised of gas which is contained inside an airtight area, where the system is activated by the compressor. As it’s pressurized, it gets hotter by absorbing the heat around it; this hot gas is then distributed through a series of tubes that expend the heat. The gas can lose much of its warmth when you abate the pressure and, as it cools, it becomes a liquid which produces the cold air from your air conditioning.
Your air-conditioning system should be checked annually for refrigerant loss. On average, a system will lose between 10% and 15% per year through natural usage, making your system less efficient.
However if this loss is due to a leakage it can also lead to expensive replacement of parts.
You can avoid this expensive mistake when you have your annual Porsche air con service. Our technicians perform a dye test to seek out any leaks followed by an environmentally-friendly, full evacuation and recharge of the system, complete with anti-bacterial, leaving your vehicle fresh and clean.
If the refrigerant is allowed to fall to a low level, the air and moisture can enter the system via the sills, which can lead to a build-up of acid that can weaken the pipework and pump. Here at Porsche Conversions, we offer a full recharge of your air conditioning.
We also recommend our anti-bacterial treatment which leaves the system free of bacteria and smelling fresh, ensuring you don’t get any nasty surprises once the warm weather returns!
