How does air-conditioning work?

Air conditioning systems are now built in to over two thirds of modern cars to regulate the internal temperature. Each system uses a fluid to maintain operating efficiency, which needs regular care and attention to keep things at a cool temperature. When the fluid runs out, the air conditioning unit is unable to work – and you’ll soon feel the car’s temperature rising. To avoid this, manufacturers suggest air conditioning recharges should be carried out every two years.

Why do I need an air-conditioning regas?

Air Conditioning systems require periodic recharges of the fluid which operates within the system in order to maintain operating efficiency. In fact, as much as 10% of the gas within your air-con system can permeate from your vehicle each year, which is why manufacturers suggest you should have your air-con recharged every two years. Remember that the air-con isn’t looked at during a service or MOT, so if you’re vehicle is over two years old, it’s likely to be due for an air-con recharge.

How much does an air-conditioning regas cost?

Our standard price for an air-con recharge is £59. We often offer great value deals during the summer months, so keep an eye on our offers section of the website, as well as our Facebook page. 

Is my air conditioning leaking?

If your vehicle’s air conditioning system has a leak, you’ll find that the air conditioning will stop working soon after having the system recharged. If the leak is particularly bad, you might find that it doesn’t work at all having just been charged. If you’re not sure, our fully trained technicians will be happy to inspect the system for visual signs of a leak. If a leak is not immediately obvious (which is quite often the case), we’ll carry out further investigation to properly diagnose the fault with your air conditioning system.

Why does my air-conditioning smell strange?

If the air conditioning system is regulating the temperature but also produces a mouldy or damp smell, it will require an air conditioning service. This service kills off the bacteria building up within your air conditioning system, and freshens the smell within your vehicle.

The air conditioning service includes:

  • An anti-bacterial treatment
  • A system inspection
  • Air conditioning recharge
