Air Con Pre Inspection Service

Air Con system inspection (required before an Air Con Service)

Before we can carry out your Air Con Service (including an air con regas), as a legal requirement we'll need to check the system for any faults or leaks. The Pre Service Inspection includes:

  • A temperature check
  • A refrigerant check
  • A thorough inspection of the system's key components, including the compressor (See note in Section 1 below), condenser, drive belts and hoses
  • A leak test (using nitrogen)

Once complete, our team will give you the option of a full Air Con Service including an air con regas (also known as an air con recharge) for an additional cost of £30. We will replace and recharge lubricant and refrigerant levels in line with your manufacturer's recommendation.

Note: the additional cost of the Air Con Service will be 30 for R134a refrigerant and 70 for the newer R1234yf gas.

If, during the inspection, we discover a fault, leak or component damage, our helpful technicians will discuss the recommended repairs with you, and provide a no obligation quote before any work is carried out.

Please note:

There is a possibility if the compressor is not working and there is little gas left, the non-functioning compressor would not be diagnosed until after the car has been re-gassed. If this is the case you will not be charged for the re-gas and will be provided with a quote to repair the compressor.


The Pre Service Inspection takes around 30 minutes to complete.
