What are the signs I 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 a regas service every two to three years. However, most drivers put the job off until the component stops working. Although, this will make demisting the windows more difficult. Thus it will burn through your fuel faster by using more engine power than would normally be needed.
Putting of a regas for a longtime may cause damage, such as cracking pipes or seized up parts.
A top tip for prolonging the life of your aircon is to use it all year round and to change the cabin filter regularly.
