Car Air-Con Shock Price Rise

Of course, this came as a shock to me. Hence, when Ryan Linton explained to me about the massive increase in the price of the car air conditioning gas? The increase will be massive? from about £37 to £300 per gas canister.

The increase has come from our beloved European Union although indirectly. Consequently, air-con gas used in many cars is classed as a pollutant. Much of it is produced in China. Because if this the EU in there wisdom have  put restrictions on the amount of gas that the Chinese export in tot the EU.

So, at the moment the reduction is about 11%. Although this only seems a small amount it puts a massive increase onto the resale price of the gas to the garages and the end users. Our customers?

The frightening thing is that the EU in all their wisdom are going to restrict imports further to a wacking 37%. The mind boggles. I suspect that our customers will not bother having their cars re-gassed. In my opinion we are now getting over penalized by these silly emission rules coming out of the EU.

As you may well have noticed, car air con recharge prices have increased all over the UK and Europe. This is due to EU HFC regulations. We explain whats going on and why.

A small light at the end of the tunnel may be the fact that many other influential car nations such as Germany are starting protest against these stringent measures. However, for the time being we in the garage trade will have to pay for the increase in price of the air-con gas. Of course this charge will have to be passed on to the customer.

Unless the EU changes its mind. Which I very much doubt then this will just be an added cost to the burden on the motorist.
