Book a R134a air con recharge today. It’s recommended to do this annually after the vehicle is 2 years old. Most vehicles registered before 1st Jan 2017 use R134A refrigerant, those registered after this tend to use R1234yf refrigerant.

Our system removes your old gas and cleans out your Air Con System before refilling with new refrigerant.

The air conditioning in your car works thanks to a compressor, refrigerant, and an evaporator. Air conditioners chill indoor air by forcing special chemical compounds to evaporate and condense over and over again in a closed system of coils. These compounds are refrigerants that have properties enabling them to change chemical state at relatively low temperatures. Air conditioners also contain fans that push the air in your cabin over these cold, refrigerant-filled coils.

When hot air flows over the cold, low-pressure evaporator coils, the refrigerant inside them absorbs the heat and changes from a liquid to a gaseous state. To make sure that it keeps cooling efficiently, the compressor puts the refrigerant gas under high pressure which converts it back to a liquid again. All the extra heat created by compressing the gas is then taken out of the system with the help of a second set of coils called condenser coils and a second fan. As the refrigerant gas cools, it changes back to a liquid and the process starts all over again. It is like an endless, elegant cycle designed to keep you cool: Liquid refrigerant is converted to a gas as it absorbs heat, then it is compressed and back to a liquid again so that it is ready to absorb the heat from the air in the car interior. Magic…or science to be precise.
