With the new air conditioning has HFO-1234yf, leaks are tested for using pressurised nitrogen rather than the dye and ultra violet light test which was used with R134a air conditioning gas. Our tests pin point any leaks in the air conditioning system. This is the quickest and easiest way to highlight and diagnose any air conditioning problems.
We also carry out a temperature check test to measure the air conditioning chill down rate, this tells us how fast the system gets down to the selected temperature.
Once tested, we can carry out air conditioning repairs and maintenance as well as servicing the climate control unit if required. We supply all air conditioning spare parts for all makes of car, vans and commercial vehicles.
We have full diagnostic and air conditioning regassing equipment at our air conditioning station in Melton Mowbray. All our master technicians are trained and qualified air conditioning repairers with the specialist tools required to fix air conditioning systems.
We offer 12 months warranty to all the air conditioning parts and labour we provide.
From 2017, a new type of air conditioning regas is required by law for all new vehicles.
The new gas is called HFO-1234yf which is commonly known as R1234YF and replaces all previous air conditioning gases. It produces 98% fewer climate-damaging pollutants than it's predecessor called R134a.
Prior to R1234a, the air conditioning has in prevalent use was R-12 but it produced a GWP (Global Warming Potential) of 10,900. R1234a in comparison produced a GWP of 1,900. The new R1234yf gas produces a GWP of 150. Many vehicle manufacturers have been fitting their vehicles with updated R1234yf systems since 2013-2014.
We have invested in the latest equipment enabling us to serve you with the latest air conditioning gas keeping you cool and our environment clean. We no longer stock R134a air conditioning gas by law and we now stock HFO-1234yf / R1234YF.
