Hi Buzz - could be the air-con system needs serviced - the efficiency of the system is decided by the amount of refrigerant not the pressure. The only way to have this checked properly is to have the system emptied and refilled using the specialised equipment used for the job. A full service of the system involves a lot more than just regassing and it prolongs the life of the system. It should be noted the system needs a special lubricant added to prevent deterioration of the seals in the compressor, etc. Additionaly it is essential the air-con be used at least once every week in both winter and summer to maintain its efficiency
