Your Cars Air Conditioning System

We have over 20 years experience in not only recharging your air conditioning system but we also specialise in repairing them.
A car air conditioning system may lose around 10% of its refrigerant every year. Recharging the air conditioning means replacing the lost refrigerant.

This is sometimes referred to as an air con 'Regas'.
We can provide air condition refrigerant recharge to the manufacturers' recommended levels
We can also replenish the systems oil levels to the correct levels
We also check for leaks, poor performance and temperature levels to make sure they adhere to meet ATA standards
We also check for and remove all traces of moisture and air from the system and provide refrigeration recovery

If your system needs repairing, for things such as leaks and broken components we can do this for you. Most garages will only provide "Regas" facilities but we have skilled technicians who can repair the systems providing big savings as some "Regas" facilities end up only providing a temporary fix.

The Problems

The refrigerant found in your air conditioning unit is critical for the air conditioning system to work properly.
It is this refrigerant that flows around the system and provides the cold air in your car. As a result of this process which involves continually shifting states from gas, to liquid and back again, some of the air conditioning gas leaks through the system each year. If the system has less gas means there is less cool air so refilling every few years will keep your air conditioning working in top condition.

There are other reasons why air conditioning stops working but low refrigerant is the most common and the easiest to fix. If after a re-gas your air conditioning is still blowing warm, it may mean there is a crack somewhere in the pipes of the air conditioning system and the refrigerant is escaping.

Other issues causing air condition problems :
Leaking or Depleted Refrigerant
Coils and Condenser Failure
Malfunctioning Fan or Blower System
Freezing or Faulty Evaporator
Bad Expansion Valve and Orifice Tube
If you experience any of the above issues get in touch and we can check it out for you.

The Solution

Recharging the air conditioning system involves removing all of the existing refrigerant and any moisture from the system and replacing with fresh refrigerant.

Using our latest air conditioning servicing machine, we attach the two hoses  to the air conditioning system under the bonnet of your car. We attach one hose to the high pressure port and the other to the low pressure port. We the carry out a pressure test to find out just how much gas has been lost. If the test result shows that little or no gas remains in the system it this indicates a more serious issue such as a potential leak and we stop the recharge.

If no faults are found, the machine recovers the old refrigerant and any impurities from the air conditioning unit using the vacuum pump. We then inject fresh gas and lubricant into the air condition system as recommended by the vehicle manufacturer.

The process takes about 45 minutes to completely remove the old gas and refill with fresh refrigerant.

Manufacturer’s recommend that you service your air condition system every two years. Whether you use your car’s air conditioning a lot or hardly ever at all, air condition gas will continue to permeate through the system over time so an air condition service every two years will keep the gas topped up and the system lubricated.

With the new gas installed, you should be able to notice a temperature change almost immediately when the air conditioning is switched on. The new gas is flowing through the system providing cool air and lots of it.
