    Its times like that im glad i can do the work just not the regassing. Suppose there is no rush, as long as i do it before the summer.

    Most places charge about £50 for a regas.

    One place near me charge £35

    If you have any gas to reclaim, then you might save some money - cost me ~£200 for a 3rd party aircon rad fitted and regassed, my garage reclaimed the remaining gas and only charged for the extra to top it up to full when re-filling.
