What factors can affect an aircon regas or replacement?

Aircon refrigerant replacement is a fairly straightforward procedure. When our air conditioning fails to blow the cold air we expect, more often than not it’s simply run out of refrigerant. However, there are always those odd occasions where the problem is something a little more complicated. There are a few other compontents in your AC system that could fail and need replacement, for example, your compressor or condenser. In each, there are parts that will fail over time due to normal use each time you drive your car.

Problems could include anything from leaky seals, dirty coils, and blocked pipes. The refrigerant can clog within the system—especially in the smaller pipes—if moisture or air contaminates the system.

Regular checks or a performance test when you get your vehicle service should help you spot any issues in advance, leaving the only real consumable to be your refrigerant.
