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

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:

  • A full visual inspection of the system.
  • 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.

 

What Does an Air Con Regas Include?

An air con regas includes a full removal and refresh of your system’s refrigerant gas. During this process, a technician will:

  • Ensure your car is using the correct refrigerant gas (R134a vs 1234YF)
  • Use specialist equipment to remove the old refrigerant
  • Check for any obvious leaks within the system
  • Refill your car’s air conditioning system with the right refrigerant gas

 

The technician will then test your system after the regas to ensure everything is working properly.

 

What Are the Benefits of an Air Con Regas?

The three main benefits of an air con regas are:

  1. Increased Fuel Efficiency. If your system is running low on refrigerant gas, it will have to work harder to cool the air in your cabin. This extra work requires more fuel which can mean more regular trips to a petrol station.
  2. Reduced Repair Costs. Running a faulty air conditioning system for an extended period of time can accelerate the wear and tear of certain parts, such as the compressor. Replacing this part is much more expensive than booking an air conditioning regas.
  3. Improved Demisting Ability. While it may seem counter-productive to use your car’s air con to demist the windscreen in the winter, it can actually be quicker than using the heater. This cool dry air is still warmer than the glass and is quite effective at clearing your field of vision. Plus, you don’t have to wait for the engine to warm up before you can start demisting.
