Car Air Con Regas & Service Sunshine Coast

Get your cars airconditioning ready for summer

There are a lot of misconceptions about car air conditioning systems. Particularly how often you should need to regas your ac.  Every summer on the Sunshine Coast we have people asking to have their air conditioner regassed and when we suggest a leak check they refuse.

Did you know that the air conditioning system in your car is a sealed system? So needing to regas is a clear indication there is a leak. For what ever reason people are being sold a band aid solution or regassing without a leak check.

Leak testing

Leaks within an air conditioning system can be tricky to find. The freon gas used in the system is hazardous and having your system checked for leaks should done before a regas. We use UV trace detector dye to safely find the leak fast and precisely.  Once uv dye is added to the system the dye will show under illumination with a UV torch wherever there is a refrigerant leak.  This precisely locates the leak resulting in extremely accurate leak detection.

Compressor regas

We offer an affordable car ac regas service for the Sunshine Coast region. There are mean seals and connection points where you system could be loosing gas and as a result over time you car may need a regas.  We always recommend performing a leak check first to ensure the regas process is not immediately leaking out.  If you would like to have your system serviced please contact us and we can book you in.

  • Thank you so much to Rod who assisted with the replacement of our starter motor in the carpark of an Alexandra Headland resort! Our Nissan Patrol had done an immense journey to Cape York from Victoria and the starter motor almost undid us! Rod's professionalism, experience and timely manner had the car on the road again and turned what could have been a very stressful time into an easy fix.

  • I highly recommend Rod and his team. The service we have received is well and truly above expectations. We made a call to Rod and within no time he was on his way to look at our sons car. He took the car back to his workshop, diagnosed the issue and rectified it. It was so nice to receive updates of what was happening and receive honest feedback.
