Car-Air Conditioner Regas: 1234yf systems From $370.00
Please note: up to 550 grams of Fresh HFO-1234yf refrigerant over 550 grams incurs an extra charge.
Following a successful Inspection, the system is then Regas. Included in the vehicle air conditioning Regas Service is the application of a deep vacuum to remove spent gases and moisture. A vacuum leak test follows this before regassing the system with the correct weighed out measure of refrigerant gas, oil top up and UltraViolet dye. The vehicle air conditioner is regas to the manufacture specifications. Then the vehicle air conditioning system is comprehensively re-tested to check the overall performance. Finally, we back our work with a three month Gas Warranty only when Keepin’ Cool replaces any parts.
Typically speaking, you should plan to have your car air conditioner regas every 1.5-2 years. Not opting for an air conditioning regas is going to leave your unit not putting out the cold air that it should. But having a car air conditioning regas is a simple fix that will have your vehicle feeling cool once again. And the good news is that you don’t have to leave your house or workplace to have it done.
Keepin’ Cool serves the entire Brisbane Southside suburbs with mobile car air conditioning regas services for your vehicle. We can come out to your place of employment or your home and do your vehicle air conditioning regas while you take care of other things. The process will take 30-45 minutes and is affordable and effective.
Refrigerant HFO-1234yf behaviour is very similar to R134a, which allows component manufacturers as well as automotive designers the luxury of not having to make drastic changes to current products. In fact, data suggests the possibility that HFO-1234yf could be used as a direct replacement, with only minimal efficiency loss when used in existing R134a systems, allowing for swift global adoption. Studies of the effects of mixing HFO-1234yf with R134a show only minor pressure increases resulting from their blending. HFO-1234yf also has the potential to be used in direct expansion systems which are more efficient and smaller than secondary loop systems. This can help meet Coefficient of Performance requirements for overall A/C system efficiency.
- HFO-1234yf has the following positive characteristics:
- Global Warming Potential of 4 in 100 years versus 1410 of R134a
- (The EU’s new limit is 150).
- Ozone Depletion score of 0.
- Lowest LCCP of other known alternatives.
- Flammability listed as “mild” or “manageable” compared to the higher flammability of R152-a.
- Much lower operating pressure versus CO2 (R744).
