Never (IMHO). How often do you change the gas in your fridge at home? It's exactly the same system and gas.

It's a sealed system,and should never need touching. If you get a little leak, then you can repair and re-gas, but apart from that, there's no need to touch it.

Air Conditioning Recharge
Air Conditioning RechargeAn estimated 10% of Air-Con gas permeates from the system every year.
Air-Con systems need recharging with gas & lubricant every 2 years.
Air-Con recharge service available from over 600 centres in the UK.
No appointment normally necessary- service operated on a drive-in basis.
Cooler air-conditioning or your money back guarantee
Over 2/3 of vehicles are fitted with air conditioning and climate control systems as standard these days. Many of us are familiar with using air-con in our car on both hot and cold days, but not many people are aware that like other parts of your car, the air-conditioning system also needs regular attention to make sure it is working efficiently.

You may not be aware that over 10% of air-con gas permeates from the air-con system every year, which means that it may not work as well as it should. This is why car manufacturers recommend your Air-Con system is recharged with gas and lubricant every 2 years. This service is not part of routine vehicle servicing, so if your vehicle is more than 2 years old it’s probably due a recharge.

The reason I asked the question

Ive never had my aircon 'recharged' on any of my cars and my last car was 12 years old and only in the last 6mths did the aircon not really work, so I would say if its still working then leave it alone.

I know what they (Kwik-Fit) say, and I also know what my dad says, with over 50 years experience of working on refrigeration equipment, large and small. There is no reason for gas to escape, unless you have a leak. Fix the leak and re-charge, but no need to do it otherwise.

Think who benefits from decanting the gas from your car, and recharging it? Laughing
