    What is car air conditioning servicing?

    Car air conditioning servicing is a service that ensures your car’s air con is working as it should.

    The servicing will involve testing your air con to see how well it’s working, before making any necessary repairs to fix it.

    Often, a car’s air-con will just need to be regassed for it to work again. This is a simple and quick fix that any car garage will be able to carry out for you.

    How do I find someone to fix my car’s air conditioning?

    Virtually all car garages should be able to fix your car air con for you. Having said that, you shouldn’t just go to the first garage that you find. The quality and speed of service you receive, as well as how much you pay, will vary from garage to garage.

    Instead, take the time to find the best garage around. To do this, you can ask your friends and family who may have used a garage to recommend one for you.

    Failing this, you can look online. You should be able to find several garages in your local area, and when trying to decide which one to go for, take a look at their:

    • Qualifications
    • Testimonials
    • Customer ratings
    • Prices (if available online)
    • Location
    • Opening hours

    Once you’ve found the one that best suits your needs, get in touch and let them know what you need, and ask for a quote.

    Why do I need air conditioning in my car?

    While having functioning aircon in your car isn’t a legal requirement, it can make driving easier and more pleasant regardless of the weather.

    The obvious use is when it’s hot, you can use your aircon to cool down your car, and yourself.

    But air conditioning is also extremely useful when your front windscreen is misting up on a cold day. Caused by the moisture in the warm air inside the car condensing when it comes into contact with the cold window, a misty windscreen can make driving difficult, and even dangerous. In this case, using your air con to blow cool, dry air into the car can relieve you of this problem.


    Can I regas my car myself?

    Technically yes, although we would advise that you ask a professional to do it for you. The air-con regas kits that you can buy usually cost almost as much as it would to pay a professional to do it, and doing it yourself will take time, and might not be done properly

    How much does regassing an aircon cost?

    Prices will vary, but you can expect to pay anywhere between £50 and £200 to get your aircon regassed.

    How do I know when my air con needs regassing?

    Usually, you can tell that your air con needs regassing when your air con isn’t blowing out air as cool as it once did. Additionally, if it’s been a long time since it was regassed, it’s probably time for you to get it done.
