Air Conditioning

Your air conditioning system can lose up to 15% of its gas every year and the inevitable increase in water content can cause expensive corrosion. A regular check, clean and service - not normally carried out as part of a vehicle service schedule - prevents damage and prolongs the life of the system.

F-Gas Regulations 4 July 2010
From 4 July 2010, only Technicians holding the minimum safe handling of refrigerants qualification approved by DEFRA will be permitted to work on the gas element of the Air Conditioning systems. Claremont's have invested a considerable sum in the training of their work force in order to comply with the new regulations.

Both Claremont Welling & Dartford branches can carry out all Air Conditioning services and repairs to both R134a & R1234yf systems.
