Vehicle Air Conditioning Specialists
Car Air Conditioning is an absolute necessity in the Australian climate.
Newcastle Auto Electrics are licensed Automotive Air-conditioning Specialists with years of experience and we are also members of the Vehicle Air Conditioning, electrical and cooling technicians of Australasia (VASA).
We offer air-conditioning servicing, repairs & conversion for all vehicle makes and models at highly competitive prices. We repair or supply and fit compressors, condensers, receiver driers and TX valves for a wide range of vehicle makes and models.
Air Conditioning Conversion
In 1989, the Australian Government restricted the use of refrigerant R12 under the Ozone Protection Act, thus requiring replacement of the use of R12 with the environmentally friendly R134a gas.
Recent legislative changes have broadened the original ozone depletion protection (ODP) to cover synthetic greenhouse gases including Fluorocarbon (HFCs) refrigerants such as R134a. Because R134a is a restricted substance under the new Commonwealth legislation only trained, licensed technicians can purchase, handle and sell it.
We strongly recommend R12 to R134a conversion (retro-fitting) for older vehicles conditioned to use the R12 gas, as R12 gas is no longer available to consumers.
Newcastle Auto Electrics has the necessary licenses, technical expertise and equipment to handle restricted refrigerants.
Newcastle Auto Electrics quickly and efficiently diagnose faulty
We recommend that at anytime any part of the air-conditioning system is changed or serviced, the receiver-drier or accumulator should be replaced too to prevent corrosion and moisture in the aircon system (moisture combines with the refrigerant to form hydrochloric acid which is extremely corrosive to metal components and can damage other parts of the system).
So trust the Technicians at Newcastle Auto Electrics to check & re-gas your air-conditioning unit & stay cool every summer without adversely affecting the environment.
