What’s the Difference Between an Air Con Regas, an Air Conditioning Recharge and an Air Conditioning Service?

While an air conditioning recharge is just another way to refer to an air con regas, an air conditioning service is something completely different. The biggest difference between them is the amount of work they include.

During an air con regas, a technician will use a specialised machine to remove the old refrigerant, usually check for any leaks within the system. If all is well, they will then refill the system with the right amount of fresh refrigerant and lubricating oil.

During an air conditioning service, a technician will complete the same recharging process but will give your system a proper inspection. This usually includes:

  • A full visual system check
  • Completing a pressure test
  • Checking that the entire system works properly (all the switches, thermostats etc)
  • Checking the temperature of the condenser while it is in use

 

However, this can vary from garage to garage. All these extra checks mean that a service is more expensive than a recharge.

 

When Do I Need to Book an Air Con Regas?

Manufacturers typically recommend that you book an air conditioning recharge every 2-3 years to keep the system running efficiently. If the refrigerant is replaced but the air conditioning system does not seem to be operating properly, either due to warm air or low system pressure, an air conditioning service will be required.

You should also book an air con regas near you if, for any reason, you suspect that your car's air conditioning system isn't working efficiently.

 

When Do I Need to Book an Air Conditioning Service?

Manufacturers suggest booking your car in for an air conditioning service every 3-4 years. It is important to book a service regularly because it gives a full clean and inspection of the entire system. Inefficient air conditioning places greater strain on your car's engine, requiring more fuel to generate cool air. This makes it more expensive to keep your car running.

It is important to note that an air conditioning service is not included in routine car services but has to be booked separately.

 

FAQs

How Does Car Air Conditioning Work?

An air conditioning system controls your car's temperature and works in a similar way to a kitchen refrigerator. When the refrigerant in these units changes from a liquid state to a gas, it cools down. Outside air is blown past the coils in which the gas flows, and is therefore also cooled before it is blown into the car’s cabin. The air con gas then returns to liquid form in the system's compressor, heating it up and directing the warm air outside the car.

 

Why is Air Conditioning Important?

Car air conditioning serves two purposes. It cools down the cabin, improving your comfort and preventing the type of heat-related irritability that may lead to an accident. Also, because air conditioners generate less humid air, they can be used to demist a fogged-up windscreen more quickly than when air is blown out of a standard ventilation system.

 

What Causes Air Conditioning Problems?

  • Insufficient or old refrigerant.
  • Low system pressure, typically caused by a leak or the failure of a component.
  • Lack of use can place unexpected stress on components when the system is eventually turned on.
  • The build-up of bacteria can make the air from your air conditioning system unhealthy.

 

Can I Regas My Air Con Myself?

While you can regas your car’s air conditioning system yourself, we would strongly advise against it. Without using the specialist equipment and proper training, it can be a time-consuming and dangerous process. You risk freeze burns if the gas comes into contact with your skin and improper maintenance can lead to expensive repairs in the future.

You would be much better off booking an air con regas with a professional local garage than attempting to complete the job yourself.

 

How Do I Know if My Air Con Needs Regassing?

If your car’s air conditioning system is in need of a recharge, you will notice the following signs:

  • A lack of cold air when you switch the system on.
  • A noisy or inefficient system that struggles to cool the cabin
  • Condensation on the inside of the windscreen
  • A musty smell or similar when you use the air conditioning

 

If you notice any of the above symptoms, you should book an air con regas near you as soon as possible.

 

What Happens If I Don’t Regas My Aircon?

If you don’t take proper care of your car’s air conditioning system, it will fall into disrepair. Every year, your system loses 10% of the vital refrigerant that cools the air. This means that it will become inefficient quickly if you don’t look after it. 

What’s more, if the refrigerant level drops too low, it will stop working altogether. If this happens, you may see problems in the long run as well. Pipes can easily seize and crack if the system isn’t used for long periods of time.

Moreover, failing to service your air conditioning system can allow mould and harmful bacteria to develop and filter into the cabin. These can be harmful if breathed in.

 

How Long Does an Air Conditioning Recharge Take?

An air conditioning recharge takes about 45 minutes. If the technician finds any issues or other problems, the repair time will increase.

 

How Long Does an Air Conditioning Service Take?

A full air conditioning service takes around 1 hour. Again, if the technician finds any issues or other problems, the repair time will increase.
