Manufacturers recommend that your air con is recharged every 2 years.
It is important to make sure that you include Air Conditioning recharging as part of your regular vehicle maintenance. This is not part of your ITV checks and an air conditioner service or regas will help to ensure optimum passenger comfort, particularly on those hot summer days in Spain when you need it the most.
The air conditioner system relies on a number of components to operate effectively, such as the evaporator, condenser and compressor. Like all mechanical parts, these items are prone to wear and regular system servicing helps to protect them from breakdown.
Unpleasant smells coming from the air vents may also suggest that your air con needs some attention.
