What are the first signs that you need an aircon regas?
The first and most obvious sign that you require an aircon regas is that the air being blown out the vents is not as cool as it should be. Or the car feels exactly the same as when the aircon is switched off.
The majority of car manufacturers recommend an aircon regas service every two to three years. However, most drivers put the job off until the component stops working. While this is only natural, it will, for instance, make demisting the windows more difficult especially (and result in you using up more fuel as the engine works harder to demist your windows).
Plus, putting off a regas for a longtime may cause damage, such as cracking pipes or seized up parts.
