The Process of Aircon Gas Top Up
Step 1: Checking Refrigerant Level
Before adding gas to the air conditioner, technicians will use a gas gauge to monitor the refrigerant level within. This procedure will determine the amount of gas required to fill the refrigerant storage.
Step 2: Identifying The Gas Type & Refilling The Air Conditioner
Using the correct type of gas when refilling is essential. Once the gas type has been determined, our technicians will replenish your air conditioner’s refrigerant storage with the required amount of gas using a refrigerant tank, bringing the gas level back to normal.
Step 3: Check The Refrigerant Level Again
Your refrigerant storage will be retested using a gas gauge to guarantee that your air conditioner unit has enough refrigerant inside. Otherwise, we will top up your aircon gas until it returns to normal.
Step 4: Repairing & Conducting Additional Safety Inspections
The refrigerant will also be checked for any damage to ensure the entire unit’s safety and prevent any gas leaks. Other problematic components are examined and, if necessary, rectified, ensuring that nothing is forgotten.
