don't forget that you are meant to use your air con all year round otherwise it will cause issues and bacteria will grow in the pipes.

Most people think its only for summer but in the winter when you are all steamed up the air con can blow hot air too, it's air-conditioning, so rather than blowing damp air on the windscreen in the winter it will blow conditioned non-damp air around the car. Most new cars have a demist mode which will turn the AC on automatically :o)

similar to the quickfit one last time....

question though, how do you know if your aircon needs a recharge? I've not done it on mine since I bought it but I rarely use it.

Is it cold? if so it's probably fine.

Quite often more than not your filter may need a clean or even replacing usually about a tenner. An easy way to check if it's the pollen filter is to knock off the air con and have it on fans only - if its more powerful then it needs a new filter.

Good deal although I got mine done locally for £19 via kgbdeals a couple of months back. Very good price for now though. Although summer has been and gone lol

My aircon was only refilled in May but is compeletely empty now so I think there's a leak somewhere? It's a Zafira. Is it better to have an aircon specialist look at it or take it to a main dealer?

A Main Dealer will almost certainly call-in or send it to a specialist - and then tack-on a chunk of money for doing nothing - does that answer your question?? :)

Definitely hot - in the past I tried one of these DIY "can" things, probably bought in Halfords, and it was about this price but rubbish. Nothing compares to getting it done properly using the real kit in a garage.

Air con specialist is best bet.

sealed f-gas systems will lose anything up to 10% of their load capacity a year. will they still work? yes. will they blow cold? yes. will it cool your car down? yes. however it won't do it as quickly or efficiently. it'll take a lot longer and use more petrol up to bring the temp down.

By not using the a/c regularly, the seals within the system become hard & brittle causing the system to leak & fail. You should use it frequently (usually at least once or twice a month) to minimize this risk. Most manufacturers advise a system regas every 2-3 years anyway. For £22.49, it is definitely worth having done, especially if it has never been done before.

My aircon does not work and I suspect I need a recharge, but I am wondering what it takes to recharge it and if it is difficult to do on your own, do you know?

Doh, read the small print... Not for online purchase.

If you don't know, it isn't worth it for £22.49.

Not all centres offer a/c service. My local one which is less than a mile away does't do it. Nearest one is about 7 miles away.

You can't do it yourself as you can't buy the refridgerant gas without a license I believe!

This is a good deal. Halfords sell a kit £20 for the gauge and £35 for the gas bottle (which you can take back for a £10 refund when empty).
It really is easy to do yourself, it's like filling a tyre, just DON'T try and connect the valve to the High side (marked "H") of the system, only the LOW side! (Marked "L"
So Halfords £45 and do it yourself or ATS. However with a DIY kit you may be able to charge 2 or maybe 3 cars depending on how much of a recharge it needed. Mine was so low it wouldn't even turn on as the pressure was too low, only took about half a can to get it to correct pressure. Now it works great, it's a 1998 car too!

If you didn't use it regularly it may just have leaked out so a regas will work (or the refill you had in May didn't put enough in). When you say completely empty, how do you know that, or do you mean it just doesn't work. Once the pressure drops below a certain level, it stops working.
I make sure I swtch mine on everytime I stop the car, that was it runs everytime I start it up again, at least for a few minutes. Important duing the winter when you are unlikely to use it otherwise.

Then it won't be as cold as it could be. Definitely worth a recharge if it's been 7 years.

semi related, was wondering (my current cheapo car does not have aircon) is it possible to get one fitted (scrap merchant/dealer?)

The little light on the A/C button ( Toyota Corolla 2001) flashes when it is turned on. Wondering if it has to do with low aircon gas? Have booked for a recharge at my local anyway.

Not cost effective. Some companies offer retro fitting but typically £2000 mark if it was possible for your car.

My nearest ATS that is capable of doing this is a 36 mile round trip away, none of my local ones do Air Con recharges.

How useless is that ?:(
#34
Going to give it a try.
Thought it was funny that you get to see the t&cs after you've ticked that you've read them. It does say in the t&cs that there is a fitting charge, I hope these are standard terms and that the final price will be 22.49?

For £22.49 this is a great deal and probably best BUT if you do want to do it yourself then Halfords does a kit (end cost around £45) which can do this (and also another car or 2) It's quite simply and there's YouTube video showing how to do it easily. The manufacturers website is also good & you can find where to connect it to your car on their site.

I've used it and after a little trial & error worked fine but be careful not to overfill (don't use more then half the can... Stop and check as half can should be sufficient for a car) Ideally leave it a while after doing it and then re-check pressure.. mine said OK whilst doing it and then hour later when I rechecked it showed overfilled ! (had to take it out using same adapter without can attached)

So it would take seven years for a vehicle system refrigerant charge to drop below artbitary 50% ?
Would say more likely to be 15yrs+ and suspect realistically likely to be much longer, but I am no automotive expert.
