We service the old style gas (R134A) and the new style gas in more modern vehicles (R1234YF)
All our staff are trained to use air conditioning systems and this is key as the older more common gas is harmful to the environment and needs to be handled correctly.
The air conditioning system can be used in the winter to help demist the windows when they steam up, using the system in the winter will also help keep the system working correctly all year round.
The labour time to regas a car air conditioning system is approximately 1 hour, the system must be vacuumed of any moisture for at least 45 minutes With the new gas we also add the lubricating oil and a special UV dye, if you ever have a leak then the dye shows us where to look.
If you have a hybrid vehicle then the air conditioning system could cause the vehicle not to run and we would advise this system is checked regularly.
If your air conditioning is not “cool as a cucumber” then you need to give your air conditioning specialists a call…

Frequently Asked Questions
Typically, your air conditioning will need to be re-gassed every two years.
If you’re struggling to remember the last time you had it done, it might be a good idea to take your vehicle to a professional to have your AC system checked over.
However, if you suspect your system needs re-gassing, there are a couple of tell-tale signs you can look out for.
The first, and probably the most noticeable is that the air coming from your vents is not as cold as it used to be, or that there is no noticeable temperature difference between the AC being switched off or on.
You might also notice a foul, mildew-like odour coming from your system when you turn it on, hear a rattling or banging sound or see a build-up of condensation on the dashboard.
If you experience any of these or other unusual symptoms, be sure to get in touch with our air conditioning specialists in Warrington.
Absolutely – but we wouldn’t recommend it.
You can purchase air-con re-gas kits if you want to attempt the job yourself, but they’re almost as expensive as paying a professional to do it for you.
Specialists will have a much better idea of how to check for leaks and other problems with your air conditioning system, and they’re also better equipped to do the job safely.
For example, if the refrigerant gas comes into contact with your skin or eyes, it could cause some nasty freeze burns.
Not to mention if anything goes wrong, you could be left with a hefty repair bill.
We just don’t think it’s worth the risk.
Getting your air conditioning re-gassed can cost anywhere between £50 to £200, depending on the type of system you have.
