Air Con Service

Print this page

Including recharge (re-gas)

If your car's hot and bothered in summer and misted up in winter, it's time to book an air conditioning service with Halfords Autocentres - recommended by most manufacturers to be carried out every two years.

As well as keeping you cooler in hot weather, a fully recharged system will reduce your fuel consumption by putting less strain on the engine.

Our extensive service includes a refrigerant recharge and replacement of lubricating oil, plus a comprehensive system components check.


A car air conditioning system will lose approximately 10% of its refrigerant every year, on average. Recharging the air con means replacing this lost refrigerant. It's sometimes known as an air con 'regas'.

In most cases, manufacturers recommend you service your vehicle air conditioning every two years. This varies from car to car, however, so check your manual if you're not sure.

  • Air con refrigerant recharge to manufacturers' recommended levels
  • Replenishment of system oil
  • Thorough checks for leaks, performance and temperature by ATA-trained technicians
  • Evacuation of moisture and air from system, plus refrigerant recovery

No. If your system needs anything repaired, such as leaks and failed components, you'll need to have these fixed separately. Our technicians will check over the system as part of the air con service and advise you upfront of any repairs that are necessary, and what these will cost.
