Facts and Fibs
FACT: If your air-conditioning system requires a regas, IT HAS A LEAK!
FIB: Your air conditioning system uses gas and requires a regas each year.
Your ac system does not use gas. The benefits of decommissioning and servicing each year are beneficial to both system performance and system life. Retro fitting rather than topping up or utilising blended gasses will preserve system life and reduce future maintenance costs to the system.
We are the answer! Your cars aircon system to you is not a complicated issue… it works or it won’t.
In many cases the repair required is NOT a regas! It may simply be an electrical fault or drive belt problem. A correct and accurate diagnosis will confirm what is required before repairs are commenced fully informing you of the course of action required. If your system requires a regas, remember it must have leaked and therefore the leak should be repaired to ensure system integrity and performance.
In some cases detection of the leak is not possible prior to regassing. To assist with further diagnosis and leak detection Roadside use leak detection dye each and every time. This will ensure if your system leaks in the future, leaks are located easily. In rare cases it is necessary to charge the system to assist with the detection of miniscule leaks, consider a puncture in a tyre, it is usually required that the tyre be inflated to locate the leak, in the case of air conditioning it is not that simple. Post repairs this means a second regas is required and is not free of charge.
Prior to 1994 majority of systems used R12 as the refrigerant. R12 contains the ozone depleting Chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) refrigerant gases. Production of CFC, ceased in 1993 and Australia is one of many countries that phased out CFC in an effort to assist preservation of the ozone layer. If your vehicle is yet too converted call us today, our trained technicians will explain the process and the investment.
