Car Air Conditioning FAQS


Uphill Automotive are well placed to take care all of your Vehicle Air Conditioner Re-gas, Repairs, Service and Inspection needs

Your car air conditioning system uses refrigerant to extract excess heat from the air in the interior area of the car out of the vehicle, leaving only cooled or 'conditioned' air behind to be recirculated. It is important that the rubber seals are checked on a reglar basis for any signs of leaks or cracks which may contribute to an ongoing loss of refrigerant.

To run most efficiently the refrigerant in your Vehicle Air Conditioner should ideally be refilled completely within four years of the manufacture date and every two to three years after that.

Your car should be taken to a qualified workshop such as Uphill Automotive (AU07267) regularly to ensure the air conditioner system continues performing at its best as well as having the mechanics advise you on the condition of the whole vehicle.

Repco Authorised Service mechanics perform a 65 point Vehicle Inspection with every service and are able to give you a warning about any components that may need to be renewed in the near future or those that are already damaged beyond repair.


Uphill Automotive (AU07267) care about the environment and have Arctick Authorisation to reliably and responsibly conduct automotive air conditioning service in and around Tamworth and the surrounding areas.
