AIR CONDITIONING & RE-GAS

Air conditioning repairs can be costly and mainly caused by a lack of maintenance causing the components to work much harder than they were designed to do to keep the system running.

Your system can lose up to 15% – 20% a year meaning a 3 year old car could have lost almost half of its gas resulting in a serious deterioration in its performance and efficiency, also causing a cars engine to run less fuel efficient.

At Pipers Auto Services we advise having your system re-gassed every 2 years. Although most people tend to address issues at the beginning of the summer months, it’s especially detrimental to leave your system low on gas over the winter months when there is more moisture in the air to enter the system, also air conditioning is designed to work in the winter as well to aid in de-misting.

We offer everything from Re-Gassing, Servicing, Specialist Nitrogen Leak Detection for accurate Diagnosis, Repairs for all vehicles using R134a refrigerant, right up to bacteria removal.

LOOKING FOR A QUICK AND CHEAP RE-GAS? THINK AGAIN

A quick fix from a can! People offering a quick and cheap re-gas, or re-charge, usually have no training or qualifications in car air conditioning. They also have no way of telling what amount of refrigerant (if any) is in the system, or indeed whether there is leak. They simply connect a can of refrigerant, open the valve and squirt some in.

A cheap re-gas will leave moisture in the system, often creates air bubbles which are also injected into the system and can also result in too much refrigerant and not enough lubricant (oil). Moisture is an A/C system killer: unless it is removed it will cause component failure as well as causing the A/C system to perform poorly.

A cheap re-gas is a total waste of your time and money, can easily damage your car’s A/C system & can release refrigerant into the environment (releasing CFCs into the atmosphere is also illegal and carries a heavy fine or jail).

Pay just once and get it done properly! A/C systems must be fully degassed of any refrigerant as there is no way of telling how many grams of refrigerant are left (all systems suffer from natural seepage).Each A/C system requires a specific amount of refrigerant, and these levels range from 400gm to 1500gm.

The A/C system has to be vacuum-checked for leaks and to remove all air and moisture. The vacuum test runs for 30 to 40 minutes to check for vapour or larger leaks.When the system is recharged the correct amount of refrigerant, the correct type & amount of oil and an Ultra Violet Dye is put into the system.

Oil is the lubricant that keeps the A/C system running smoothly. It is carried around the system with the refrigerant and is also lost when the refrigerant level drops: a simple re-gas does not replace lost oil – imagine running your car with no oil!

We add an Ultra Violet Dye to save you money in the future! Should your system develop a leak we can quickly and easily find the leak with an ultra-violet light and replace just the faulty parts.
