The biggest difference between an air con regas/recharge and an air conditioning service is the amount of work they include. An air conditioning recharge is just another way to refer to an air con regas; they are one and the same.
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 and, if all is well, 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:
However, this can vary from garage to garage. All these extra checks mean that a service is more expensive than a recharge.
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.
If your car’s air conditioning system is in need of a recharge, you will notice the following signs:
If you notice any of the above symptoms, you should book an air con regas near you as soon as possible.
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.
An air conditioning recharge takes about 45 minutes. If the technician finds any issues or other problems, the repair time will increase.
A full air conditioning service takes around 1 hour. Again, if the technician finds any issues or other problems, the repair time will increase.
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.
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.
