Every week I get a few enquiries asking if I gas up fridges and how much does it cost. Answering your emails and text messages one at a time takes up a lot of my time. So I decided to answer this question in a short blog post. This will provide some insight into the problem many of you are having.

Question: My fridge needs gassing, is this something you do?

Answer: Yes I do gas fridges. But if your fridge needs gassing then it also needs a comprehensive service because it is intended to be a hermetic system, not using and not losing gas over time. Gassing up leaking fridges without first repairing them is not a solution to the problem.

Question: How often do I need to gas up my fridge?

Answer: Never. If a fridge lost its charge or some of its charge, it has a big problem and it needs service. This service includes leak finding, leak repairing and gassing up the fridge as a minimum. Sometimes it is possible to repair the leak on the spot, other times a new part needs to be ordered and fitted to repair the leak. Leak finding and leak repairing are the most labour intensive and highly technical jobs for the breakdown engineer.

Best regards


Your local fridgeman
