Are you looking for Air Conditioning for your vehicle?

An optimal air-con refrigerant level is essential to enjoy a pleasant driving experience, especially during the summer months. A low refrigerant level will hinder proper cabin temperature regulation and it will take longer to achieve the desired cooling efficiency. Therefore, car manufacturers recommend opting for a routine air-con refrigerant check every two years to avoid such circumstances.

Douglas Tyre And Autocare is a sought-after car workshop for Car Air Conditioning Darlington. Our experts are well-versed in the technical know-how of air-con gas refills of every vehicle makes and model to help serve a larger customer base. Moreover, we can look after vehicle models manufactured both before and after 2017.

Symptoms of low air-con refrigerant level

It is difficult for car owners to check whether the refrigerant level is as per manufacturer recommendations or not. Therefore, some of the symptoms to detect a fall in car air-con gas level are:

  • Hot air blowing out from the vents
  • Visible signs of leakage
  • Reduced fuel economy
  • It takes longer to cool cabin temperature
  • Requires higher blower speed than usual to reach specific temperatures
  • Malfunctioning compressor, etc.

Types of air-con refrigerants in our stock

The variants of refrigerants we stock for air con refill Darlington are:

R134a – It is more environmental-friendly compared to its predecessor (R12), making it a feasible option. However, it still has a high global warming potential (GWP).

R1234yf – This is the latest introduction in the car air-con refrigerant category. It breaks down faster in the upper atmosphere, accounting for its environment-friendly nature. Many manufacturers like KIA are shifting to this variant to ensure reduced greenhouse gas emissions. In fact, all new vehicles sold in the EU from 1st January 2017, must use refrigerants with GWP less than 150, and R1234yf meets this criterion.
