Air Conditioning Re-Gas

Your Air Conditioning system is not just for keeping the air cool. It’s also used to dehumidify the hot air in winter, demisting the windows and keeping your windscreen clear. If the Air Conditioning system isn’t working properly moist air won’t be able to demist the windscreen, affecting visibility.

Around 10% of air-conditioning gas will be lost from the air-con system every year, that's why most car manufacturers recommend that the air-con system is recharged with new gas every 2 years. Our trained technicians will remove all the old refrigerant gas and oil and thoroughly clean the system before injecting new oil and refrigerant gas. We'll then take a temperature reading to ensure that the Re-Gas worked.

How Does My Air Conditioning System Work?

The air conditioning system is basically a refrigerator designed to move heat from the inside of your car to the outside. The key parts of the system are briefly described below.

Compresses and circulates the refrigerant in the system

The refrigerant carries the heat in the system.

The condenser changes the the refrigerant from gas to liquid and removes the heat from the car.

The evaporator moves heat to the refrigerant from the air blown across it, cooling the vehicle.

  • All gases and moisture are removed through a deep vacuum of the system
  • We vacuum check the entire system for leaks
  • Lubricating PAG oil (special air conditioning oil) is added
  • Dye is added to look for leaks (if authorised)
  • The gas is measured and recharged into the system
  • Running pressures are checked
  • Cabin vent temperature is checked
  • The system is also checked with an electronic sniffer
