Let us re-gas your aircon
Your vehicles air conditioning does much more than just cool and heat the inside of your vehicle. When working properly, air conditioning helps to filter out all types of air pollutants like pollen and any airborne bacteria that may be present, greatly improving the quality of air inside your vehicle. We have qualified aircon re-gas mechanics at Arrowtown Garage that can help with all your aircon re-gas needs.
Your car air conditioning system loses up to approximately 20% of its refrigerant (Air-conditioning gas) each year & should be checked every year or when you have a problem to avoid a AC repair.
A failing air-conditioning system can cause high fuel consumption, insufficient cooling & you may have a possible leak. If you want to prevent any air-conditioning repairs then book in for an AC service or AC re-gas.
All our Air-conditioning technicians are trained in and hold an approved filler and or approved Handler Test Certificates. Home tune also offers an air-conditioning re-gas top up service, this may not necessarily fix all air-conditioning leaks or faults as it is only a top up. This can be topped up at your home or office by an Arrowtown Garage technician at the same time as servicing your vehicle or you can book this top up service.

You can tell by yourself that your system may need some servicing.
- If the air isn’t as cold as it used to be, your car’s refrigerant may need to be re-gassed.
- If the vents are kicking out a foul smell, there may be mould in the system.
- If you can hear some unusual banging or rattling sounds, it may be that the condenser or fan belt has worn out, or debris could be clogging the fan.
Workshops across the country offer a variety of air conditioning service packages, however most will include the following:
– A temperature and gas pressure check
– Monitoring of the pollen and cabin filters
– A review of the oil content of the system and an oil top up if required
– Addition of dye to seek out any leaks
– A recharge of the air con refrigerant to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended levels
Some workshops will have dedicated air conditioning specialists or use auto electricians to conduct the work, but this can also be completed by trained technicians.
The costs on aircon services vary depending on your vehicles age and model. Like any service done at Arrowtown Garage we first asses the vehicle before knowing what the costs will be.
For a full service from qualified technicians, be prepared to pay about $200 on average for an aircon re-gas.
It is worth being aware of what the service will cover in advance. If it’s been some time since your aircon was serviced, you should try to avoid a cheaper re-gas, which simply tops up the system’s refrigerant. This may be a quick fix, but failing to lubricate the system or identify leaks can lead you to the same problems resurfacing just a few months down the track.
At Arrowtown Garage we do a full and comprehensive service with great products and workmanship.
It’s estimated that a cars air conditioning system will lose around 10-15% off its refrigerant every year. Most manufacturers’ recommend that the air conditioning system is serviced every two or three years in order to replenish the liquids used by the system and to ensure all components are working correctly. For further clarification, refer to your cars service manual.
If you are about to head off on a long journey with your family, keeping your car cool and comfortable is a great way to keep everyone happy and healthy.
