Did you know that the air conditioning in your car isn’t just for summer? It’s helpful year-round, whether it’s to cool you down, demist your windscreen (game changer), or filter out pollutants, bacteria and pollen.

Over time, the refrigerant gas in your car’s system diminishes, especially if you don’t use the air conditioning all that much. It’s easy to take your car in for an air conditioning recharge, also known as a regas. Compare air con recharge quotes from your local garages with our handy tool, and book online.

When to have an air con service

Most manufacturers recommend having an air conditioning service every two years as standard. This helps to keep the whole system running smoothly and prevent problems.

If you notice your air conditioning works intermittently, or isn’t as strong as it used to be, it’s worth booking it in for a recharge. A smelly air con system is another sign that it’s time for a service.

How much is an air con recharge?

The cost of your recharge will depend on the type of gas your car uses. The cheaper one (R134A) will typically cost around £50, while the more expensive one (R1234YF) costs around £100. The more expensive gas is newer, and is more environmentally friendly.

Cars made before 2014 tend to use the cheaper gas (R134A), while cars made in 2017 or later will use R1234YF. In 2017, it was made illegal for car manufacturers to use R134A in new vehicles. Cars made between 2014 – 2016 could require either one, but your local garage will be able to tell you which is right for your car.

Free air con checks

Most garages will offer a free air conditioning check to see if it needs recharging. They’ll perform a temperature check, and inspect all the elements in the system, including the compressor, condenser, drive belts and hoses. They’ll also check the refrigerant and do a leak test. They’ll then let you know if further work is needed.

What’s involved in an air conditioning recharge? 

Mechanics will top up the lubricant in the system, replace the refrigerant to the correct levels, and also perform an antibacterial clean to remove build-up of bacteria in the filters, which can sometimes cause a smelly air conditioning system.

Is an air con regas part of a service?

While servicing may include an air con check, they very rarely include a regas. It’s also not something that’s checked during an MOT. Some garages offer a deal if you book a service and regas through them, however.
