    what about standard heater though when aircon not on.

    would the tinny noise indicate lack of gas?

    Did it suddenly stop being cold or has it been gradual?

    Define "warm". With the aircon off, the coolest you're going to get is the outside temperature (which is where the air is coming from) which round here has been over 20 degrees at the moment (so not exactly cool).
