What is F G19030432_1338157352899099_3602305093593890613_nas? – F Gas stands for Fluorinated greenhouse gas.  It’s basically the Air-Con refrigerant (R134A) gas we use when we Regas your Air-Con system on your car.

Why do Air Con Technicians have to be F Gas trained?  – The reason our technicians have to be F-Gas trained is because F-Gas has such an detrimental effect on the ozone layer. If our technicians aren’t trained in how to work with F-Gas, they could potentially be allowing it to leak into the atmosphere and damage the environment. In fact, the EU believe that F-Gas has such an extreme effect on the ozone that failure to comply with regulations could result in us, as a garage, getting a very hefty fine and potentially even jail sentences for the technician using the gas!

What do technicians learn to become F Gas qualified? – Prior to obtaining an F-Gas certificate, technicians must be able to demonstrate the knowledge and skills required to diagnose Air-Con system faults through pressure readings & system electrical faults.   They then go on to learn all about the detrimental effects of F-Gas and how to handle it safely and contain it to prevent harmful effects to our environment.  For example, if we were diagnosing a leak on an Air-Con system, we would now use Nitrogen and a pressure test in order that any refrigerant (F-Gas) didn’t leak into the environment.

Testimonials – 

Sophie – Thank you so much for squeezing us in, and for a brilliant, quick, efficient MOT for our Nissan Juke today. Thank you also to Andy for all his help on the phone last week explaining the different services available, what the differences are, and was totally honest in telling me we didn’t need the full service, only an interim service, when I didn’t have a clue! Big thank you for restoring my faith and trust in garages after being ripped off for years by a national chain (with an orange logo!). Will definitely be back and have already got you two new customers by word of mouth today. Thank you! Sophie & Ritchie

Ronni – A big thank you guys for truly going above and beyond. Not only you fixed the car with such a short notice but you also went the “extra mile” or 6 🙂 by giving me a lift for work… really appreciate it
