    Default Air con noise?..

    Last summer my aircon worked fine. This spring its started making a hollow whoosing noise when switched on (sort of like an empty gas clyinder being filled) now nothing happens when switched on. Is it just that it needs a re-gas or is this likely to be new compressor time too?

    Have you used it at between then and now?

    Sorry if it's teaching grandma to suck eggs, but AC needs to be run regularly to stop the rubber seals drying out and in turn to stop the refrigerant and PAG oil leaking out.

    AC is for all year use, not just hot days. It can also be used in conjunction with the heater (as per how climate control works) and makes for a great window demister.

    It's been used intermittently throughout winter. Perhaps 30 mins a month in total?..

    Mine did this when I picked it up last week. Took it to Kwik-Fit for a re-charge (they give you your money back if they can't make it colder) and it was sorted! £49 and a cool interior!
