Car Air Con Regas Perth

If you’ve turned on your car air con and it’s not blowing cold air, it could be time for a regas.

An AC system will lose approximately 10% of it’s gas each year, so a full air con regas will need to be done once every 5 years.

If you are needing a regas more often than this you may have a leak in the system.

So whether your car air con went out while you were driving or just didn’t work when you turned the car on, it likely just needs a regas to have it blowing cold air again.

We offer handy mobile car air conditioning regas in Perth from $220..

The time taken for a car AC recharge is approximately 1 hour to complete.

A regas/recharge can also be performed at our workshop.

It could be replacing hoses, fixing leaks or replacing other parts of the AC unit.

What Are The Major Components Of Car Air Conditioning?

Compressor – The heart of your air con system, pressurises and circulates refrigerant gas.

Condenser – Located in front of the radiator, it releases heat absorbed by the refrigerant.

Evaporator – Cools the air inside your car and removes moisture.

Expansion Valve – Regulates refrigerant flow into the evaporator.

Refrigerant – The working fluid that absorbs and releases heat.

Car Air-Con Benefits: AC Is More Than Just Staying Cool

Your car air-con isn’t just about keeping you cool in summer and warm in winter.

There’s also additional benefits like…

  • A working AC system keeps you comfortable during long drives.
  • It reduces driver fatigue, leading to safer journeys.
  • Filters in the AC system help improve air quality by trapping dust and allergens which is especially crucial for individuals with allergies or respiratory issues.
  • Proper vehicle AC maintenance prevents overheating, which can damage your engine.
  • AC can possibly extend the life of your car’s interior components thanks to preventing heat damage.

What Does Car Air-Con Maintenance Involve Exactly?

Everything in life requires some type of maintenance, and your car AC is no different.

Here is a brief car AC checklist of what should be done annually to keep your air-con running optimally…

Regular Inspections – Have your AC system checked annually by a professional.

Cleaning or Replacing Filters – Dirty filters reduce efficiency and air quality.

Refrigerant Levels – Ensure proper refrigerant levels; low levels can damage the compressor.

Keep It Running – Run your AC periodically, even in winter, to maintain its seals and lubrication.

Watch for Warning Signs – Strange noises, weak airflow, or unusual odours are signals for needed repairs.

Your car’s air conditioning system is more than just a luxury; it’s essential for your comfort and health while driving.

Regular maintenance and attention to warning signs can keep your AC running smoothly and help you keep your cool, no matter how high the temperature climbs.

So, take care of your car air conditioning, and you’ll enjoy every journey in comfort and style.

FAQs

How often should you regas your car’s air con?

Modern car air con systems should be recharged every 5 years.

An annual inspection is advised to check for leaks that could post a safety hazard or an unnecessary regas.

How can I tell if my car aircon needs regassing?

If your AC is being inconsistent by blowing warm air one minute then cold air the next minute, it could be a sign that your system needs a regas.

It could be a sign of other issues too, so it’s best to get a licensed car AC inspector and technician to identify the root cause of the problem.
