As Brisbane’s leading air conditioning experts we provide all aspects of install, repair and maintenance for residential and commercial clients. We are here to make your life easier by giving your home and business endless comfort with our world class air conditioning solutions

Air conditioning regas forms part of this service and is probably one of the most common repairs that we are asked to undertake.

Who can re-gas my Air Conditioner

Working with refrigerants?

A Refrigerant Handling Licence must be held by any person who carries out work in relation to refrigeration and air conditioning (RAC) equipment. Carrying out work in relation to RAC equipment means doing anything with a fluorocarbon refrigerant, or a component of RAC equipment, that carries the risk of refrigerant being emitted including: decanting the refrigerant or manufacturing, installing, commissioning, servicing or maintaining RAC equipment or decommissioning RAC equipment.

Handling fluorocarbon refrigerant without a Refrigerant Handling Licence is an offence. National regulations are in place which affect people who acquire, possess, dispose of or handle ozone depleting substances or synthetic greenhouse gases.

Who needs a refrigerant handling licence?

Any person who handles refrigerant or works on RAC equipment must hold a refrigerant handling licence. Handling a refrigerant means doing anything with the refrigerant, or a component of RAC equipment, that carries the risk of its emission, including:

  • decanting the refrigerant; or
  • manufacturing, installing, commissioning, servicing or maintaining RAC equipment, irrespective if whether or not refrigerant is present; or
  • decommissioning or disposing of RAC equipment where refrigerant is present.
What types of refrigerants do the licences cover?

The refrigerant handling licence and refrigerant trading authorisation cover all fluorocarbon refrigerants: chlorofluorocarbons, hydrochlorofluorocarbons and hydrofluorocarbons. Examples of these include R12, R22, R134A, R410A and R404A.

Why do I need a Refrigerant Handling Licence to handle refrigerant?

Fluorocarbon refrigerants are harmful to the environment if emitted to the atmosphere. Under the Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management Regulations 1995, persons handling refrigerant must hold a current Refrigerant Handling Licence. This licence is issued by ARC on behalf of the Australian government and can be obtained by completing the online licence application form on this website.

What is an Air Conditioning re-gas

An air conditioner re gas is where the unit has developed a leak and the refrigerant has escaped which affects the unit being able to push out cold air.

When a Snap Air Conditioning technician attends we won’t just regas the unit. We will locate where the leak is coming from and rectify the leak prior to regassing the unit. There is no point regassing a unit if the leak is still present.

In Australia, only companies that have an Arctick License can operate with refrigerant. An Arctick licensed operator must follow strict and mandatory procedures regarding the sale, usage, and disposal of refrigerants.
