How often should I re-gas the air con on my car?

I have not re-gassed the aircon on my 1999 BMW 7 Series in four years but it is still ice cold. Should it be checked anyway?

As long as you're using the system all year round, you shouldn't have a problem. Manufacturers recommend having the system regassed every two years - but most drivers wait until the air conditioning's efficiency starts to reduce before taking action.

The air conditioning temperature control doesn't work in my Citroen. When it's at the minimum it's okay, but you change temperature it starts heating?
