- Can I re-gas my vehicle air conditioning unit myself?
Australian law requires that a licensed technician must perform air conditioning repairs and servicing to ensure that environmental practices are adhered to and the refrigerant gas is safely handled.
- Is air conditioning refrigerant gas flammable?
R134a is non-flammable, while HFO-1234yf is mildly flammable. HFO-1234yf systems are engineered to specifically designed standards to ensure the safety of users.
- How much does a re-gas cost?
A Natrad specialist technician can inspect your vehicle cooling system to diagnose the problem and identify if the refrigerant needs to be topped up or replaced. The cost of re-gassing will depend on which parts have failed, and the type and amount of refrigerant required.
- How often should my car air conditioner be serviced?
Your vehicle’s air conditioning system is a sealed system, and usually only needs to be serviced when something goes wrong, such as ineffective cooling of the air entering the cabin.
- Why is it important to refill the gas in my car's AC?
If you have a modern car, the AC will simply shut down if it has sprung a leak. On an older vehicle, when there’s not enough refrigerant in your car’s AC then your vehicle may sustain compressor damage. Repairing this damage is far more expensive than the cost of refilling the gas. AC gas refill for your car is a comparatively simple measure that can save you money in the long run.
