Now Is The Time To Get Your Car’s Air Conditioning Sorted!

Summer is here and whether you commute to work or are going to a weekend getaway, driving without the air conditioning will be awful.

The temperature inside the cabin in the summer heat can rise up to 60°C. So you need to get the air conditioning system regassed or serviced before the full force of summer kicks in!

Over time, AC systems need to be regassed due to some of the refrigerant gas escaping. If you want it to perform at its full capacity and it would be a good idea to get your AC system checked just before summer.

How Is an Air Conditioning Regas Done on a Car?

If you find that your air conditioning is not blowing as cold as it used to, chances are it needs a regas (also known as a recharge). AC regassing is a normal part of maintenance for air conditioning systems and generally needs to be done every 1-2 years.

Why does AC need regassing?

The way the car AC system is designed, there are lots of seals and parts that are prone to failure overtime, allowing small leaks to happen. In theory, the system should be fully sealed and never leak. But in reality, leaks do happen. Especially as the car ages, seals can because hard or brittle and let some gas to escape. This is one of the reasons that it is recommended to regularly turn the AC on even if you don’t need it, to keep the seals oiled so they last longer.

If you find that your AC system needs regassing often, that is a sign that something is not right and you should have it checked out for faults or leaks.

What’s involved in doing the regas?

The regas procedure involves removing the old refrigerant gas from the systems and filling it with new gas. There is a regas system that hooks up to your AC system which extracts the old gas and then fills it with the correct new gas.

We will also do a performance test before replacing the gas to see if your AC system is working correctly. If there is a fault, we will let you know what needs to be fixed before completing the regas.

Other AC maintenance items

While dealing with the AC system, it may be worth replacing the cabin filter (probably never been done) and doing an anti-bacterial clean if you notice a musty small coming from the air vents.
