Being in the trade since 2008, where we started in a small back street garage, we have learnt a lot. The Motor trade is a very saturated market with lots of vendors; from franchised dealers and fast fit centres to small independent garages. The competition is tough with everyone claiming they are better than the rest. Here at Blackwater Autoworks, we do not talk about how much better we are, nor do we brag how we can ‘take care of all your motoring needs’. With the fast pace of technology and the wide variations of cars on the road, it is impossible to know everything, even for a specialist who focuses on only one particular brand. It is always a catch-up game, even for the bigger franchised dealersHere at Blackwater Autoworks, we are clear and simple as to where we stand. We all want the same thing – a simple and happy life. We want to contribute to our community, and we do this by striving to be one of the respectable and reputable independent garages in our area. We continue to work on our craft by investing in the latest technologies and never stop training ourselves to be better technicians. We do this to keep a thriving business with happy customersWe understand that customer service is at the forefront of it all. Flashy facilities or an endless list of accolades doesn’t mean anything to you if you feel like you didn’t get the value for your money. We want to make our customers feel valued and listened to. When you are dealing with us, we will always make sure you get the service/product you thought you would receive, and we are getting a happy customer. We only make promises we can keep, even if it means we have to say NO. Occasionally there is a job which is beyond our capabilities, so we would prefer to advise you on what to do next, rather than take your money and not get the job done correctly. ‘Quality over quantity’ is definitely our ethos, so we only put out work that we are proud of. Once you hand over your car keys; we understand you are putting your trust in us, and we promise to carry out any job to the best of our abilities. We also know that if we break that promise you are never coming back. Till this day we have not spent any money on big marketing campaigns but gratefully relied on our happy customers’ word of mouthThank you for visiting our page.

Aircon Regas in Guildford
Frequently asked questions
+

How does car Air Conditioning work?

Your air conditioning works in a similar way to your fridge. It uses 'refrigerant', which changes from a liquid to a gas at a relatively low temperature, in a series of coils. When it does, it absorbs heat. An air-conditioner blows air past these coils, cooling the air as it passes. Afterwards, this gas is converted back to a liquid, creating heat, but this heat is blown outside, rather than into, your car.
+

What is an Air-Con 'Regas'?

An air-con 'regas' or 'recharge' involves removing all refrigerants from your air-conditioning system and replacing with the precise quantity of fresh refridgerant. It is required if your air-con is no longer blowing as cold as it should, or isn't clearing up fogged windows.
+

How much does Air-Con 'Regassing' cost?

A regas typically costs from £40 upwards, but almost always under £100.
+

How can I prolong the life of my Air Conditioning?

Use it! Make sure to switch on your air-con every few weeks in the winter/spring and let it run until the air is blowing really cold. This will mean it is more reliable in the summer.
+

Can I regas Air-Conditioning myself?

Air-Con Regas 'kits' are available to inject fresh refrigerant into your system. However, they won't remove old refrigerant, impurities, moisture etc, nor will they check for leaks. Given the low cost of a professional re-gas, we would always recommend it.

Why do you need an Aircon Regas?

The majority of modern cars have air conditioning fitted as standard as it is vital for making the ride in a car comfortable for passengers.

An air conditioning system works by using refrigerant gas to push air through several components in the aircon system and then into your car.

Whether its freezing cold or boiling hot, it’s your air conditioning which makes driving in such conditions bearable, so it’s important to look after the system!

Surprisingly, over 10% of air-con gas escapes through the system each year. This means that the power of the system drops significantly over time. However, your air conditioning will not be checked during an MOT or service which is why it’s important that you make an effort to have it checked specifically.

Car manufacturers recommend that cars should have their air con recharged (Regassed) every two years.

Even if your car is new it should be something that you have checked as your cars performance could be significantly affected.

This is because the engine will have to work harder to produce cold air if there is an issue with the air conditioning meaning more fuel will be required to make the system work.

If the system has not been recharged in two years, the drop in engine performance will be noticeable.

As soon as you realise a drop in the power of your air con you should take the vehicle in for repair. If there is an unpleasant smell being emitted, this is another sign that the air con needs looking at.

What happens during an Aircon Regas?

The job of recharging air conditioning is not complex and will not take long.

The mechanic will carry out a leaks check on the air con system before the repair work, to ensure the job can be carried out without causing damage to the car.

As soon as this is complete, the technician will be able to recharge the system.

The mechanic carrying out the work will first remove old refrigerant from your car as well as the current gas and lubricant.

They will then replace it with new gas and lubricants.

The job will also typically include an entire system clean out which is carried out to remove any bacterial build up.

This is often the reason for a strange or unpleasant smell being emitted from the air conditioning which is why it is important to have this job completed every two years.

The whole process should take around 45 minutes as there are no new parts required for install.

The air conditioning in your car should be noticeably improved after a regas if you haven’t had one for over two years.

If you want to ensure your air conditioning stays in tip top condition, make sure to use it regularly as this the compressor will stay lubricated.

Finding a mechanic you can trust to do a good job and charge a fair price, is not always easy, which is why we simplified the process.

We work with a network of over 10,000 mechanics and garages across the UK so we can find competitive air conditioning regas deals for you.

  • Enter your car registration number
  • Give us a few details about your car and your requirements
  • We’ll send you a great selection of quotes from mechanics and garages in your area
