Your car's air conditioning does much more than just cool the inside of your car.

When working correctly, air conditioning helps to filter out pollen, pollutants and any airborne bacteria, greatly improving the quality of air inside your vehicle.

Air conditioning systems can lose refrigerant gas over time, especially when they aren't used regularly and manufacturers recommend air con servicing every two years to keep your air con system clean and your car cool

As of 2017, a new type of air conditioning gas is required by law for all new vehicles.

The gas, called HFO-1234yf, replaces previous refrigerants, as it produces 98% fewer climate-damaging pollutants than its predecessor, R134a.

If your vehicle requires the new gas 

If required after the pre test, we will replace and recharge the lubricant and refrigerant levels in line with your manufacturer's recommendation, if during the inspection we discover a fault, leak or any component damage, our mechanic will discuss the recommended repairs with you.
