Service - we can re-gas both R134a and R1234 systems, covering older and
modern cars including electric and hybrid
Diagnose and repair - We can also diagnose faults and carry out system repairs.
We have the facilities and expertise to carry out a wide range of fault finding and repairs to car air-conditioing systems.
In normal use, the air conditioning system gradually looses refrigerant gas as the joints between pipework and components expand and contract. The rubber seals are lubricated with oil so it is essential that the air-con is turned on periodically to make sure the oil moves around and stops the joints drying out. Typically a car might need re-gassing every 3 or so years.
During the process we remove and measure how much refrigerant gas was in the system so that we can assess if there is simply a reduced amount of gas preventing the system from activating, or a leak. We then use a pressurised nitrogen check to hunt for any leaks, and this is where our experience is key as the leaks can be very small.
Like your fridge at home, the system has a condenser unit, however this has to sit in front of the coolant radiator to achieve the best temperature exchange and is susceptible to damage from stone chips and general corrosion. We trace leaks to even the smallest hole and can replace this or other faulty components.
We have equipment for the more traditional R134a gas and the new R1234 that has less global warming potential, although is more costly. We also use the correct lubricant "PAG" oil that is compatible with normal belt driven and electric compressor pumps found on hybrid and electric cars
When re-gassing, we also add a UV dye that will allow faster diagnosis of any future problems that may occur. Our staff have the right qualifications for using the equipment and refrigerant handling.
Customers sometimes request an air-con service that includes de-odorising. We have previously used an aerosol that can be deployed, however a much more effective way to de-odorise is using an ozone treatment. We have just purchased an ozone treatment machine that as well as removing odours, is also claimed to kill bacteria and virus'. If your car has a funny smell or you would us to carry out the ozone treatment, please let us know.
