When to have an Air Conditioning Recharge Service

Manufacturers recommend that a cars air con is recharged every 2 years. A car or van air conditioner is not checked as part of an MOT test and re-gassing is not typically included in a vehicle service.
We recommend, it is important to make sure that you include recharging as part of your regular vehicle maintenance routine.

If your AC (aircon) is blowing out warm air or only works intermittently, an AC recharge can bring back cold air when you need it most on hot days and can also improve your fuel efficiency as there is less strain on the system and engine. Unpleasant smells coming from the air vents also suggest that your air con needs some attention.

Air conditioning recharge – the process.

The recharge process is quite simple. It involves removing any old refrigerant gas and oil from the vehicles air conditioning system before replacing it with the correct amount of new refrigerant and lubricant, as per your vehicle manufacturer's recommendation. A vacuum test is also performed to ensure there are no cracks or damage in the vehicles air conditioning system that could cause the gas to leak out.

The whole recharge process is usually completed within an hour and your vehicle will once again have refreshing cool air on demand. Our trained technicians will show you the difference in your air conditioning before and after recharge. Vehicle air conditioners that are not recharged regularly will be less effective and will have to work harder to produce cool air. This puts more strain on the engine and so, uses more fuel. If your air conditioning system has not been recharged in the past two years it will dramatically reduce efficiency.

Use your cars air con in winter too.

An interesting fact about a vehicles air conditioning system is, it doesn't just provide cold air inside your car during hot summer months it can also be used in winter. Air con systems create dry warm air rather than the normal humid air from outside which can clear (de-mist) your windscreen much quicker than a vehicles regular demist blowers.
