We handle both older R12 refrigerant gas systems (pre-1992 approximately) as well as all modern R134a refrigerant systems. It is now impossible due to environmental legislation to offer the older R12 gas type.
Our solution is to offer a true 'drop in' replacement to R12 known as RS24.This refrigerant solves the problem and considerable expense of having to completely retrofit your system to work with R134a refrigerant.
We use a gas analyzer to check your own existing system gas and can identify the type (correct or otherwise) and its purity level. If contaminated we can recover this gas and dispose of it safely, protecting the environment and satisfying the current legislation.
Alternatively if your gas is pure enough we are able to recover and recycle it thus saving you money. We are also able to prove the performance of your system against the manufacturer's expectations for your vehicle using an automated temperature logger which in conjunction with a PC can provide a printout of pre and post service performance of your air conditioning system.
A variety of leak testing techniques are available at our disposal including high pressure testing using environmentally safe pure Nitrogen, ultra violet dye and an electronic refrigerant sniffer. We can apply these individually or collectively to ensure we find and cure any elusive leaks.
Access to specialist parts suppliers ensures we can locate the right part for your vehicle, usually within 24 hours if we do not stock it ourselves.
Vehicle air conditioning systems are designed to perform two basic functions:
In order to carry out these functions successfully the system must be able to counter the effects of unwanted heat and relative air humidity in the vehicle interior.
As the owner of a vehicle fitted with air conditioning, you will appreciate the many benefits of a correctly functioning system; sitting in traffic jams or travelling at high speeds, with the windows closed, makes for a comfortable and safer journey in any situation.
To ensure you maintain the benefits of a correctly functioning system Air Care recommends your system is inspected annually.
We aim to keep the air conditioning system of your vehicle working as well as it was originally designed to work. We service all cars including regular British, European and Far Eastern vehicles as well as American and sports Cars, Buses, Tractors, and commercial vehicles of all types.
