Like any other part in your vehicle, your air conditioning needs maintenance to work properly.

This is why car manufacturers recommend your air-con system is recharged with gas and lubricant every 2 years.

Car Air Conditioning Regassing
Looking for Auto Air Conditioning Regassing – Perth / Midvale Western Australia?
Auto air conditioning regassing, refilling or recharging is not part of any routine vehicle servicing. If your vehicle is more than 2 years old you should consider having the air conditioning system re-gassed – often referred to as recharging – with refrigerant. It’s also a smart idea to contact your Auto Air Conditioning Experts in Perfth, WA – Midvale, WA – Australia – Auto Edge about a bacteria clean treatment.
Not getting your air-con regassed, recharged or refilled can hit your wallet, too, as your car uses more fuel when the air-con is on and, if the system isn’t working efficiently, you’re paying through the nose for a benefit you’re not getting – your air con is working just as hard, but without the results!
Car Air-con isn’t just useful in the summer either, as the dry air your air-con system kicks out in the winter gets your windscreen demisted faster, so it’s always a good time to give your air conditioning a little conditioning treatment!
Air conditioning re-gassing is quick, simple, and surprisingly easy on the wallet, we can even do it while you wait, so there’s never been a better reason to cool off!

Wondering Why Your Car Air Conditioning Isn’t Blowing Cold Air? Think Your Air Conditioning System Need Regassing or Recharging?
There could be several reasons that cause your auto air conditioning system to stop blowing cold air. One of the most common ones is that it’s probably low on refrigerant (often called freon).
On older vehicles, the air conditioning systems held 3 to 4 pounds of refrigerant and sometimes even more. That meant if the system was low 3-4 ounces (or about 1/4 pound) the system would still blow cold air.
On today’s cars, the A/C systems only hold about one pound of refrigerant and sometimes even less. That means if your air conditioning system leaks that same 3-4 ounces (or about 1/4 pound) the system is way too low to create the cooling required to blow cold air.
Is your car air conditioning just blowing warm air? You could do costly damage if you continue to operate the system because the A/C Compressor isn’t getting proper lubrication.

Why does my car air conditioning system need regassing,recharging or refilling?
If your car’s air-conditioning system blows warm air on hot days, it’s usually because it is low on refrigerant (often called Freon). It’s most likely low on refrigerant because of a leak somewhere in the system.
Vehicle owners think they need to regass, recharge or “top off” their air-conditioning system with refrigerant on a regular basis, such as annually, that’s not the case. If the air conditioning stops working (but the fan continues to blow warm air), a leak in a hose, connector or other part of the system is probably the culprit. During the winter, you may notice that the defroster isn’t clearing fogged up windows, and that also is a sign you have a leak. Most defrosters engage the air conditioning to dehumidify the air.
If there is a leak, the air-conditioning system on most modern vehicles is designed to shut down once the refrigerant level drops low enough in order to prevent damage to the air-conditioning compressor. Note that we are talking about “refrigerant,” not Freon, the brand name for a type of refrigerant that is no longer manufactured in the U.S. because it can damage the ozone layer. Contemporary vehicles use a refrigerant known as R-134.
What is Included Regassing, Recharging or Refilling
my Auto Air Conditioning System?
Auto Air Conditioning Regassing, Recharging or Refilling includes a complete evacuation and regassing or recharge (a more expensive procedure and one that should be done by a professional). We will be able to test the complete air conditioning system and regass or recharge it with the precise amount of refrigerant recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. There is no reason to clean the system unless it is opened up, such as to check for leaks or other problems.
When is it time to add or replace the refrigerant? You could be proactive and have it done before you experience problems, but you shouldn’t need that more often than every few years at the most. If your air conditioning is losing its potency, even after topping it off, then you probably have a leak. But if you stay as a cool as a cucumber on the hottest days, you could just leave well enough alone. The air conditioner obviously has enough refrigerant.
If you’re experiencing any problems with your car air conditioning or thing that your auto air conditioning system needs to be regassed, recharged or refilled, you should make a point not to operate your car’s air conditioning system and have it checked as soon as possible. In fact, you can book your next service right now, even if it’s 2:00am Sunday morning!
