What is an Aircon Regas Service?
Your car’s air conditioning system will gradually no longer perform at its best as a result of refrigerant leaks, clogged filters, failed or worn system components. To keep your air conditioning functioning optimally, Coleman Tyres recommends that you get a regas regularly.
An aircon regas service will require the removal of the refrigerant gas from the air conditioning system, testing for any leaks, following re-filling and pressurising the system.
When do I know I need a car air conditioning regas?
Not sure if your car’s air conditioning system needs a regas? Oftentimes a car air conditioning repair is something that is overlooked until it’s too late, and if you’re not a car enthusiast, sometimes it’s hard to identify what may need servicing.
Below, we have compiled a list of symptoms that could be a sign that it’s time for your car to be brought in for an air conditioning service. You’ll also be able to easily relay this information to our auto experts.
Signs your car needs an air con regas:
What does a car aircon regas look like?
During a normal car service, our staff will do the usual checks for faults that can be related with your vehicle’s cooling system, though it’s beneficial to periodically bring your car in for a comprehensive air conditioning assessment.
An aircon regas is a service where a Coleman technician reinstates the proper refrigerant gas level in the sealed air conditioning system. During this service, we inspect every detectable part of the system to check their stability, test and examine all electrical circuits and operations.
If your system does not detect any leaks and is stable, we will regas your car air conditioner with the utmost assurance.

Our air conditioning services are affordably priced and can comfortably fit into anyone’s budget.
Contact our lovely staff today on special offers and how we can maintain the smooth running of your car’s air conditioning system all year round.
Our comprehensive car air conditioning systems service involves:
- Identifying the type of gas in the system
- Safely recovering all the refrigerant from the system
- Looking over the state of the compressor, condenser, and all hoses
- Looking over the state of all wiring harnesses
- Vacuum the system with a two-stage high flow pump
- Test if the system is holding vacuum, indicating the system is leak free
- Carefully examine system operations such as condenser fan and blower fan, pressures, as well as vent temperature
How much will my car air conditioning service cost?
At Coleman Tyres, customer satisfaction is our biggest priority. We focus on doing a great job, every time — so you can rest assured that you’re getting excellent service at great value. Our air conditioning service costs involve a $99 testing service, and a $71 regas if everything is looking good. If we detect any issues, we will let you know what further work may be required and what it may cost.
The $99 testing service involves our team running a series of tests to check that all the components in the air conditioning system are performing as designed, and to confirm the air conditioner can retain new gas successfully. Following this test, we will provide you with a report of any work that may be required to get it working and ready to regas. If your system is leak-free and performing as designed, we can charge your vehicle’s air conditioning with more gas, for ice-cold cooling.
Why do we test the air conditioner first?
About 50% of vehicles that get put in for a regas actually have a larger issue with the air conditioning system, which makes a regas ineffective; if the air conditioning unit is leaky or broken, putting more gas in can be a waste of time and money, as it quickly dissipates. We hate to see our customers pay for something that they don’t need to, so our regas service is broken into two affordable separate steps; the initial check of the air conditioning system, followed by the regas if everything is looking okay.
Prolong the life of your car air conditioner
Looking after your car’s air conditioning after a service is incredibly important to keep it in perfect shape. Here are a few tips to keep in mind to preserve your car air conditioning regas:
- Turn on your car air con at least once a week. This is particularly important to remember in the winter months as doing so will sustain your refrigerant gas pressure. When summer finally hits, your car’s air con won’t have lost any of its pressure and you will be able to comfortably enjoy car rides during sweltering hot days.
- When running your air conditioning, always keep your windows closed. When the windows are down while the air con is on, the cold air escapes outside. This results in the fuel needed to power the air being wasted.
Continue to bring your car in for a regular assessment
An inspection of your vehicle’s air conditioner needs to consistently take place to keep it working optimally. By maintaining your car AC system regularly maintained by our specialists at Coleman Tyres, you can be assured your air conditioning continues to operate all year round, allowing you to rejoice in a refreshing, chilly car in summer and a fog-free windscreen during winter.
Don't Be Duped By Poor Quality Air Conditioning Services
It is vital to go to a reputable location when seeking a car mechanic for a replacement in your vehicle’s air conditioning gas. Servicing workshops that are unqualified are known to swap your car’s refrigerant with a hydrocarbon gas called M30 which is a gas that is a major fire risk and can bring about damage to your cooling system parts. In the unfortunate event that your car is involved in a car crash, there is an extreme risk of the M30 being released into the cabin. Now that you are equipped with this knowledge, you should always verify that your car aircon regas can only be serviced by a certified and trustworthy technician like Coleman Tyres.
