Nissens – helping independents experience the difference in climate system support

Technicians are at the frontline when it comes to air conditioning (AC) and climate control systems and as service and repair of these areas is far from simple and requires specialist knowledge, they need to have the right partner when it comes to the premium quality parts they need, as well as the technical advice to allow them to tackle the work with confidence and do the job right, first time. With decades of thermal management expertise, and as a dedicated aftermarket focused business, Nissens Automotive (Nissens) is therefore their perfect partner for the 2023 climate comfort season and beyond.

As more new energy vehicles (NEVs), which include hybrid and electric vehicles, take to the roads, more will come into the workshop for routine climate system maintenance or repair. However, the technicians undertaking this work need to be aware that they require special handling and safety procedures, as well as a deeper level of specialist knowledge to complete it successfully.

Using the thermal system as an example, many NEVs rely on a heat pump solution, which is an advanced system compared to a standard AC loop, so adds further complications.

As a result, the first thing on the wish list for independents in a busy workshop is access to reliable technical support and this is an area that Nissens excels in. The company openly shares its expertise on the AC system’s maintenance, troubleshooting and component installation. Its technical insights cover the newest technology trends and include the latest, aforementioned NEV thermal management systems. This technical support is easily accessible in various forms, from online assets to highly effective live training.

The complete range comprises more than 3,600 part numbers and offers exceptionally high car parc coverage, including 450 AC parts for NEVs. This range is constantly expanding and grew by 150 last year alone, and of these components are 40 AC system pressure sensors that cover 160 OE part numbers and high-voltage AC compressors for Tesla Model 3, Kia Niro, Hyundai Ioniq and others.
