Air Conditioning Gas Changes

Image for Air Conditioning Gas Changes article

As of 2017, a new type of air conditioning gas is required by law for all new vehicles. Regrettably, we don't stock the new gas, and are therefore unable to carry out Air Con Servicing on some makes and models.

As of 2017, a new type of air conditioning gas is required by law for all new vehicles.

The gas, called HFO-1234yf, replaces previous refrigerants, as it produces 98% fewer climate-damaging pollutants than its predecessor, R134a. If your vehicle requires the new gas, this is avaliable in selected autocentres (see the full list below)

Some manufacturers made the switch a few years ago, and already require the latest gas when serviced. Below is a full list of makes and models (only if manufactured from 2013 onwards) which are only suitable for the Air Con Service at Halfords Autocentres listed below:

*If you are unsure on what gas you require, please refer to your vehicle handbook or contact our Customer Support Team on 0800 096 4216
