Air Conditioning Regas/Recharge

Birway Garage offers air conditioning recharge services for the two main types of refrigerant used in modern vehicles: R134A and R1234yf. Typically, vehicles registered before January 1, 2017, use R134A refrigerant, while those registered after this date usually use R1234yf refrigerant.

Our AC Recharge Service

Recharging (or regassing) your car’s air conditioning system ensures it operates efficiently and provides consistently cold air. Over time, the refrigerant gas in your air conditioning system depletes and needs replenishment to function as intended.

With 240 locations offering car air conditioning refill and recharge services throughout the UK, you can easily find a Birway Garage centre near you for your AC recharge needs.

Terms & Conditions: Prices listed online apply to combustion engine vehicles only. For a quote on regas services for EV or hybrid vehicles, please contact Birway Garage. We offer regas services for vehicles using either R134A or R1234yf refrigerant at selected Birway Garage centres. Your vehicle’s handbook will specify which refrigerant your AC system requires, but generally, vehicles registered before January 1, 2017, use R134A refrigerant, and those registered after this date typically use R1234yf refrigerant.

AC Regas R134A

It is advisable to perform this maintenance annually once the vehicle reaches two years of age. For most vehicles registered before January 1, 2017, the R134A refrigerant is commonly used, whereas those registered after this date generally use the R1234yf refrigerant.

How often should you recharge your car’s air conditioning?

Regular inspections will ensure that your air conditioning performs at its best, making driving on hot days much more comfortable and keeping your windscreen clear during the winter months.

We recommend having your air conditioning system checked for its gas/refrigerant level once your vehicle is two years old, followed by annual checks to keep it running smoothly. Regularly recharging your car’s air conditioning system will allow it to continue providing cold air and maintain optimal performance levels.

If you have any concerns about whether your air conditioning system is functioning correctly, Birway Garage offers a free temperature test for your vehicle. This will help you determine if an AC recharge is needed.

Why recharge your air conditioning?

Using your air conditioning regularly not only keeps your car cool in the summer and the windscreen clear in the winter but also helps the system run efficiently. However, these systems require maintenance to continue performing optimally.

Air conditioning stays cool thanks to the refrigerant gas circulating within the system, ensuring that cool air is distributed throughout the vehicle. Over time, the amount of refrigerant gas can decrease between system checks.

A reduction in refrigerant gas levels leads to decreased system efficiency. Since air conditioning checks are not always included in your annual service or MOT, you should have the system inspected regularly to ensure long-lasting performance. Check out our blog to learn more about what to do if your air conditioning isn’t working properly.

At Birway Garage, our skilled technicians will restore your air conditioning lubricant oil and refrigerant levels according to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations.
