How do I know when to regas my car's aircon?

My car’s air conditioner hasn’t been working well for the past few weeks. I think it’s time I regassed it, but I’m not sure. What’s the best way to know when I should regas my car's aircon?

Answer
Checking on your air-conditioner is an important part of summer car maintenance. But it can be tricky to know when is the right time to regas it! Generally speaking, you should regas your aircon annually.
That said, it may not be necessary if you live in a cool area! To make sure it’s time to regas your air conditioning, keep an eye out for these telltale signs:
  • The air you’re getting isn’t cold enough.
  • The air struggles to cool off in a reasonable amount of time.
  • A weird or bad smell comes out of the vent when you turn on the air conditioner.
  • You notice weird noises when the air conditioner is on.
