Car Air Conditioning FAQS


Kats Automotive are well placed to take care all of your Automotive Air Conditioner Re-gas, Repairs, Inspection or Servicing needs

A car air conditioner system uses refrigerant to extract heat from the air in the interior of the vehicle out of the vehicle, leaving only cooled or 'conditioned' air to be redistributed. It is important to study the condition of the rubber seals at regular intervals for any signs of leaks or fractures which could indicate a loss of refrigerant.

For optimum performance the refrigerant in your Car Air Conditioner system should ideally be refilled completely within four years of the manufacture date and every two to three years after that.

You should drop off your vehicle to a reputable workshop such as Kats Automotive (AU29884) regularly to make sure the air conditioning system continues performing efficiently as well as having the mechanics appraise the condition of the entire car.

Repco Authorised Service mechanics perform a 65 point Vehicle Inspection with every service and are often able to give you a heads up about any items that may need replacing in the near future or those that are already damaged beyond repair.


Kats Automotive care about the environment and have Arctick Authorisation (AU29884) to reliably and responsibly conduct automotive air conditioning service in and around East Brisbane and the surrounding areas.
