CompressorTech urges garages to get ready for air con season

With summer just around the corner, CompressorTech, the UK’s leading compressor specialist, is urging garages to make sure they’re ready for the profit opportunity that air con season can present.

With the onset of warmer weather comes a significant spike in air con demand. Motorists turning on their air con for the first time in months and finding that the performance isn’t there usually signals the start of a busy period for garages.

In anticipation of this surge, CompressorTech is advising garages to follow some useful steps to ensure that they are fully prepared to capitalise on all air con business that comes their way.

Simple steps, such as updating the company website to reflect that the business services and repairs air conditioning systems, and notifying customers with marketing comments on invoices that air con season is approaching, are easy ways of generating new business.

James McClean, Managing Director, CompressorTech, said: “I really want to see garages make sure that they are practising what they preach by imposing stringent maintenance checks and regular inspections on their air conditioning service equipment.”

Thoroughly checking that the air con machine is serviced and operational is a must, but often garages fail to make sure that all other essential equipment or tooling is also present and in good working order. Checking the stock levels of the consumables that go hand-in-hand with air con maintenance, such as refrigerant, oil, dye, etc. can save embarrassment at a later date.

Ensuring that technicians are appropriately trained is essential too. A skilled air con technician can diagnose issues which have caused system failure, resulting in healthy profits from parts sales and labour rates.

Technicians who are F-gas approved and have attended Air Con Diagnostic training courses add credibility to your business, as all UK and European workshops are now required to provide proof to their local motor factor that their business has the necessary F-gas accreditation in order to be able to purchase and handle the transfer of R134a refrigerant from the supply cylinder into their air con machine safely.
