    if your lucky yes, if not new condenser, dont think its the compressor as you say it's been running, quick fit offer a recharge and if it fails yor money back, can't loose.

    "VX recommend a re-gas every year"

    If you leave it on permanently that shouldn't be necessary. You can still heat the car in winter but with the added benefit that the air is dehumidified.

    You don't have to wait until it gets warmer to use the AC. You're meant to regularly run it throughout the year to prevent seals from drying out and losing the refrigerant gas.

    Yep, that's basically how climate control works. You can use bog standard AC as climate control by manually adjusting the heater knob. Makes for a great demister too.
