Air Conditioning Regassing
Air conditioning systems require refrigerant in order to cool the air circulating within your vehicle. Over time the gas, which often transitions between a gas and liquid state, will dissipate naturally, and levels can become low. As a result, the air con will become far less effective. That is why manufacturers recommend regassing the system every 1-2 years to maintain its performance.
Why Do I Need an Air Conditioning Recharge?
Regassing, otherwise known as an air conditioning recharge, ensures your system is running efficiently, supplying cool air for comfortable driving. However, this is not the only benefit of having a well-functioning air conditioning unit. So, even if you prefer your vehicle on the warmer side, we still encourage you not to be complacent about scheduling a regas. A low gas level makes your car work harder to cool the air, resulting in an increase in fuel consumption. In addition to improving fuel economy, recharging the system improves the speed of demisting on cold mornings and prevents the compressor overheating.
Efficient Air-Con Servicing
It is advisable to carry out consistent air conditioning servicing every 1-2 years. Signs that a service may be required include unusual noises from the compressor, unpleasant odour from ventilation points or a change in the air pressure or temperature. Typically, efficient air-con servicing only takes around 45 minutes and includes:
- An antibacterial clean, killing bacteria within the system that can be inhaled
- A recharge, regassing the refrigerant and restoring it to a functional level
- Vacuum testing, to identify any leaks and allow us to accurately quote for repairs
