For all cars type approved after 2011 and 134a refrigeration re-gassing
Around 60% of cars now have air con, or climate control. This is where air is cooled in the car by cooling the air through a condenser. This helps make the air cold in your car refrigeration gas is condensed and then air is passed over the condenser and through vents and into your car.
If it all works correctly you get very cold air from your car vents.
Each year a small number (15%) of gas permeates from the system, when this happens the effectiveness of your air con diminishes.
