Testing your Aircon
Before you bring your vehicle to us, then make these few simple checks. It can help you confirm that there is an issue with your Aircon and help us to identify the issues.

- Let the system run for a few minutes
- Smell the interior of the car. If there is an issue with your Aircon, you may smell as "gas" type smell, indicating your refridgerant is leaking. You may also smell a "musty" smell, indicating your Aircon needs cleaning. In either case, bring your vehicle to Perth Aircon Centre for a check
- Hold you hand in front of an open vent. You should feel the air noticably cooler than the air in the car. Make sure that it not just the airflow that is making your hand cooler. If you do not feel a noticable colling then you need to have your Aircon check at the Perth Aircon Centre.
