If you find yourself in this situation where your air-con has failed or even if it is just not working properly, it may be time for an air-con service or air-con regas service.
What is an Air-con Regas Service?
When it gets hot outside, you want your car to be a cool, pleasant place while driving. If your vehicle’s air conditioning system is not working correctly, your car goes from Pleasantville to sweatbox. Do not let this happen to you. If you find yourself in this situation where your air-con has failed or even if it is just not working properly, it may be time for an air-con service or air-con regas service.
When you take your car in for a service with qualified and trustworthy mechanics like the ones we employ at Reliance Bicester, it’s refreshing to know, they have your safety and comfort in mind when working on your vehicle.
The process of air-con regassing involves taking the old, used-up refrigerant gas out of your air-con system and putting in new, fresh refrigerant gas. Simply put, this will restore your air conditioning to optimum levels so the air comes out cold again and you can set your car’s temp to wherever you are comfortable, from “slightly cool” to “icebox”.
How Do I Know I Need Air-con Regas Service?
If your air-con is not working correctly, the telltale signs can be warm air blowing from the vents when you expect it to be cool or just the fact that the air-con is not hitting the correct temperatures like it used to.
If you have not had an air-con regas service in a while (or ever!) it is probably worth getting it done when you feel your air-con starting to struggle. Bringing your vehicle to Reliance Bicester will allow our technicians to properly diagnose the problem or let you know that there may be a larger problem such as a leak in your air-con system.
How Often Should I Get Air-con Regas Service?
If you ask our pros, they generally will tell you every 2 years or so. However, the majority of car owners wait until the air stops blowing cold and they simply start sweating bullets. It’s not the worst thing in the world but it is not the best either.
While it will not do any permanent damage to your vehicle, not having a properly maintained air conditioning system is inefficient and it will make your car’s engine work harder, this in turn will make it burn more fuel and cause more engine wear. It won’t kill your car but it will definitely place more strain on it, as well as put more strain on your wallet when things go wrong.
Is Air-Con Regas Included in Normal Service?
It generally is not part of a normal vehicle service so it is important you keep an eye out for the warning signs and either book an appointment specifically for the air-con regas service or ask about it at your next service appointment.
When you are getting an air-con service, our technician will also be able to check the system’s fluid levels, which may be part of your vehicles regular service as detailed in your service book. In addition, the technician will also be able to do a test called a “vacuum test” if needed, to determine if there are any leaks in the system that could be causing the problem instead. Changing the air filters (another part of a regular service) will help keep your air-con system in good shape as well.
There is nothing worse than being stuck in traffic, in a sweltering car and the air conditioning system is not working correctly! Properly functioning air-con is essential for a highly efficient vehicle and for you, and your passengers’ overall comfort and quality of the ride.
