Air Conditioning


Car Air Conditioning is an absolute necessity in the Australian climate.

Berwick Auto Electrics & Mechanical, are licensed Automotive Air-conditioning Specialists with 28 years of experience.  We are currently members of (ARC) Australian Refrigeration Council.

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.

At Berwick Auto Electrics & Mechanical we have the necessary licenses, technical expertise and equipment to handle restricted refrigerants. Berwick Auto Electrics & Mechanical can quickly and efficiently diagnose faulty air conditioning components or leaky air-conditioning systems to minimise environmental effects. We routinely use Fluoro-Chek glo dye in R134a gas to detect leaks and protect the environment.

We recommend that at anytime any part of the air-conditioning system is changed or serviced, the receiver-drier or accumulator should be replaced  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 Berwick Auto Electrics & Mechanical, to check & re-gas your air-conditioning unit & stay cool every summer without adversely affecting the environment.
