Air Conditioning



Tony Fowkes Automobiles have been involved in air conditioning services and repairs in Park Royal for over 15 years and are fully accredited and qualified to industry standards.
We have the capability of carrying out an aircon re-gas with the ‘older’ R134A refrigerant as well as an aircon regas with the ‘new’ R1234YF gas. From the 1st January 2017, vehicle manufacturers are no longer permitted to use R134A refrigerant in new vehicles. The new R1234YF gas has a lower Global Warming Potential (GWP) figure and is therefore considered more environmentally friendly.
We use the highly acclaimed Robinair air conditioning equipment and have taken training with AutoClimate, one of the most respected air conditioning centres in the U.K. Having access to their vast knowledge and stores facilities, puts us in an excellent position to service and repair any vehicle air conditioning system.

Does your Car Air Conditioning System Need Servicing?


Do you have:

    • Odd air conditioning smells inside your vehicle?
    • A windscreen that doesn’t clear quickly?
    • A long wait for the interior to cool down?
    • Increased fuel consumption?

Yes? Then it’s time to have your air conditioning serviced! Your air conditioning needs to be serviced regularly, if not it can result in:

    • Poor cooling
    • Increased fuel consumption
    • Long term expensive repair bills

We understand that your car is important to you and its annoying when your air conditioning goes wrong. Like all mechanical things, air conditioning servicing and maintenance is the key to keeping it working at top performance. Unfortunately, refrigerant leaks do occur and as the performance decreases, your fuel consumption goes up. Vehicle manufacturers recommend that the air conditioning system is serviced every 2 years. Air conditioning servicing will:

    • Save you money in the long term
    • Reduce pollen and pollution entering your car
    • Ensure the correct temperatures are being reached
    • Increase the life of your vehicle’s air conditioning system
    • Reduce the amount of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) in the atmosphere

Do you know if your air conditioning is working properly? The compressor could be having to work harder to maintain the vehicles interior temperature.

Most modern air conditioning systems use a pollen filter to extract particulates including pollen entering the driving compartment. These require regular changing to remain working efficiently.
