Air Con Recharge

Air Conditioning

We offer a range of options to suit your needs, from a bacterial clean, a Re-Gas ,to a full Air Conditioning Diagnostic service.

We are also able to provide Air Con Recharge for newer vehicles that require the new R1234YF gas and hybrid vehicles. 

Full details of our service options can be found below.

What Will It Cost?

Initial Air Con System Inspection:    £29.00 inc VAT 

An Air Con System Inspection is required prior to recharge to check for any possible leak in the system.  If we do find a leak, you will not be charged for a full recharge and will only pay £29.00 for the inspection. We will of course advise you on any leak found.

Assuming no leak is found, a full recharge will be carried out in line with your vehicle manufacturers recommendations and the following additional charge will apply:

Full Recharge using R134a:   Additional  £30.00 inc VAT

This Includes:

  • Full R134A refrigerant recharge specific to your model
  • Recovery of old refrigerant
  • Replacement of lubricating oil
  • We can also offer Bacterial Removal for a further £18.00 inc VAT

Full Recharge using R1234yf:   Additional  £90.00 inc VAT

This Includes:

  • Full R1234YF refrigerant recharge specific to your model
  • Recovery of old refrigerant
  • Replacement of lubricating oil
  • We can also offer Bacterial Removal for a further £18.00 inc VAT

Assuming no leak is found, a full recharge will be carried out in line with your vehicle manufacturers recommendations and the following additional charge will apply:

Antibacterial Clean   £18.00 inc VAT

Over time you may notice an odd, musty smell in your car, when using the Air Conditioning. That smell is caused by a build up of mould and bacteria on the evaporator.  During use, the evaporator gets damp, and with damp, comes mould and bacteria, hence the smell.  Our Antibacterial Clean will eliminate this and ensure no more nasty smells.

Full Air Con Anti Bacterial Service 

£99.00 inc VAT for R134a Refrigerant / £159 inc VAT for R1234yf Refrigerant

This comprehensive service includes a full system inspection and leak test, follwed by an Air Con  Recharge.  We will also carry out an Antibacterial Clean of the Air Con system, in addition to replacing the Cabin Filter in your car.  The Cabin Filter works by filtering all of the air that comes through the car's ventillation system to prevent pollutants, such as dust, pollen, smog and mould spores from entering the cabin.

Which Refrigerant Does My Car Need?

Most cars on the road use the traditional R134A gas.  However, all cars manufactured from 2017 onwards use the new gas R1234YF. This new gas produces 98% fewer pollutants than the traditional R134A, however, unfortunately it is significantly more expensive than R134A.   The gas is not interchangeable, so we have to use the correct gas that your vehicle was designed to use.

In addition to newer cars, some manufacturers switched to the new gas before 2017. Please scroll down for a list of the vehicles we believe to be using the new gas.
