Vehicles made prior to 1992/1993 probably have air conditioning systems running on the older R12 refrigerant gas. Since 31.12.2000, due to environmental legislation, it has become illegal to offer this gas type for the service or repair of air conditioning systems. R12 refrigerants are believed to damage the ozone layer. We therefore offer the following options when work is required on R12 systems:
Complete retro-fit to R134a refrigerant. This is the most expensive option requiring removal of the compressor etc. This option is becoming cost prohibitive.
The fitment of a retro-pro kit to work with R134a refrigerant. R134a is the refrigerant used in vehicles since 1992/1993. This is now the preferred option.
Leave the system broken! Open windows, wear loose clothing!
We use a gas analyser to check your existing system gas and can identify the type (correct or otherwise) and its state of purity. If contaminated we can recover this gas and dispose of it safely, protecting the environment and meeting with all current legislation.
