Please note: We are currently unable to recharge air con systems on hybrid vehicles or those requiring 1234yf refrigerant gas (The standard gas found in vehicles manufactured from 2017 onwards). If we find that your vehicle requires this type of gas we will happily refund you.
At Tyre Pros, we’re perfectly placed to recharge your vehicle’s air conditioning system. Our team of experts are fully equipped with the specialist tools and knowledge to refill this part of your car, ensuring that it is working just as it should be.
When Should I Get My Air Con Recharged?
Over two thirds of vehicles are fitted with air conditioning and climate control systems as standard, and if your car includes this technology, there is a good chance you use it on a regular basis. An air conditioning system can ensure you remain feeling cool and comfortable in warmer weather, as well as help to demist your windscreen more quickly when the temperatures drop.
However, it’s important to remember that, just like any other component of a vehicle, your air conditioning system requires regular attention to make sure that it is working efficiently. If your air con system is not fully recharged, it will become less effective and need to work harder. In turn, this will put more strain on the engine and use more fuel.
How Much Does An Air Con Regas Cost?
Our standard price to recharge your air con system with R134A gas is £59.95. Please note, we are unable to recharge air conditioning systems in cars that require 1234yf refrigerant gas. This is the new standard gas that is used in vehicles manufactured from 2017 onwards. If you are unsure which type of gas you need, please check with your local centre before you book.
When Should I Book An Air Con System Recharge?
Ideally, you should arrange an air con refill and recharge every two years. It’s worth bearing in mind that this part of your vehicle is not inspected during your annual MOT test, neither it is usually looked at during a service, so it’s important that you organise this yourself.
If your air conditioning starts producing warm air, it probably means you are due an air con recharge. The system may also need attention if you notice a nasty smell coming from the air vents, or if it works intermittently.
Air Con 'Recharge or No Charge' Guarantee
With our Recharge or No Charge guarantee, you will only have to pay if the coolest vent temperature from your car has improved by more than 10% (when measured in degrees Celsius). Please note: If the ambient temperature around the car is less than 9 degrees Celsius it may affect the results of the recharge test results. If this is the case, it will be at the Manager’s discretion whether a refund is offered. Air-Con repairs are guaranteed for 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever of those comes first.
What Is An Air Con Regas?
An air con regas is the process of removing old refrigerant gas and oil from your vehicle’s system and then replacing it with new gas and lubricant. During this process, a vacuum test is also carried out to check for any damage within the air con system itself that could be causing the gas to leak out.
At Tyre Pros, we can regas your car’s air conditioning system in under an hour, providing you with cool, refreshing air when you need it most.
