Air-conditioning Regas Melbourne

Like all servicing with your car, the air-conditioning system can pick up issues early and prevent additional damage that could be caused if the system was to run out of gas or other issues occur.

We recommend newer cars, less than 10 years old have their air conditioning system serviced every 2 years and cars older than 10 years every year. This is because as vehicles age they have a greater chance of leakages as the components deteriorate.

Most of the time if your air conditioning isn’t working it is probably because the gas has leaked out. We need to find out where it has leaked from prior to charging the system with gas. It is illegal to regas the system with a known leak, due to the effect on the environment.

The system is checked as in the service described above including the computer scan, pressure testing the system, visually inspecting all hoses, joints, connections and other air conditioning hardware.  Once the leak is found we will advise you if there is any additional cost to repairing the leak prior to proceeding.

Once the leak is repaired we recharge the system with appropriate amounts of oil and gas (R134a) according to the vehicle specification. A dye is added to the gas in order to detect leaks in the future. Other problems may also occur with the hardware components that make up the air-conditioning system causing the system to fail in operation. If this is the case we will discuss with you the options and prices for the work required.

Can I supply my own parts and just pay for labour?

Our policy is no, we do not fit parts supplied by customers as we want to be able to warranty our work and when the parts are supplied it becomes messy if there is a warranty issue. It keeps it much clearer if we provide both parts and labor.
