Car Air Conditioning

How often should you recharge your Air Conditioning?

Did you know that the air conditioning in your car can lose as much as 10% of its charge every year?

This can make it far less efficient, and more importantly, it may fail to keep you cool enough on a warm day! The system can also be used to demist your windscreen using the dry, hot air which it produces. If your unit is lacking a good charge, then this will take longer and require more power.

Car manufacturers recommend that your air conditioning system is recharged with gas and lubricant every 2 years. This does not come as part of your annual vehicle servicing. So, if your vehicle is older than 2 years, it is quite likely to be due an air conditioning recharge.

Having your air conditioning unit serviced will also help to keep the air fresh, eliminating any bacterial build-ups which can cause bad odours. Over two thirds of cars today are sold with air conditioning or climate control as a standard feature.

The Benefits

  • The key benefit to recharging your air conditioning is that you will be able to effectively keep yourself cool on warm days, but there are other benefits as well.
  • Having a fully charged unit means that it requires less time to cool down, effectively putting less strain on the engine and saving you fuel.
