Signs Your Car Needs An Air Con Service

There are three main signs and symptoms that your car air conditioning needs a refill or a service:

The Obvious: Not Cooling Down

The most common symptom of a vehicle air conditioning issue is that you have noticed a gradual loss in the overall cooling capability of the A/C system. You may notice that:

  • The air is not blowing as cold as it was before.
  • The air is not actually cold air at all.

This can usually be solved by simply booking in to have your car air conditioning re-gassed.

AC Makes Weird Noises

When you turn on your A/C you should only hear the fan blowing cool air. If instead you can hear a banging, rattling or squealing sound, that is a bad sign. Your A/C may need a re-gas or there may be an issue with the fan.

Bad Smell

If you turn on your vehicles air conditioning and you notice a bad smell, you need get this checked out. An unpleasant smell often indicates that mould is growing inside the system. This air is not safe for adults or children to breathe and should be checked immediately.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How much does an air con re-gas cost and how long does it take?

A: We charge $95 and it usually takes about 45 minutes.

Q: How often does a car’s air conditioning need a re-gas?

A: Usually once every 2 years at a minimum. If you do plenty of driving, it may need to be re-gassed a bit more frequently.

Q: What if I don’t re-gas my vehicles A/C?

A: If you choose not to re-gas your air-con system, it will become less efficient and unreliable over time. Your car will be uncomfortable in the warm Gold Coast weather, and it will take longer to demist the windows in winter.

Q: Can you fix my car air conditioning?

A: Sometimes an air-con regas can reveal bigger problems. We are fully equipped to diagnose and repair any electrical or other issues with your car’s air conditioning system.

We would recommend that you make re-gassing your air con a priority.

Q: How long does a car air con regas take?

A: To remove the refrigerant gas from your car air con system and replace it will take around 30-45 minutes.

Q: Can I re-gas the system myself at home?

A: You can purchase a car air-con re-gas kit if you want to try, but it simply isn’t worth the risk.

Q: How much gas does a car’s air conditioner use in a year?

A: No refrigerant gas will be lost in a well-maintained car air conditioning system. If your AC does lose refrigerant gas over time, this is an indication that there is a fault with the system such as a gas leak.

Those kits are almost the same price as paying a specialist to do the job and if you make a mistake, you will be left with a very expensive repair bill.
