Strange sound from air condition?

Hello. In my 07 FN2, I just recently got this strange sound coming from the ac. To describe it, it sounds like gas leaking. The sound comes and goes random, and when turning the ac completly off, the sound stops. Anyone now what is causing this?

funnily enough i've been having a hissing sound from my type R recently... again like you, a gas escaping kind of sound. I was trying to nail down where it was coming from, or try to establish some kind of pattern/trigger point for it but couldn't.

I've not actually tried turning the AC off yet, as stupidly it didn't even occur to me it could be that...

On my car, with AC left on you get a hissing/releasing of gas sound every few minutes. Sound seems to come from passenger side of engine bay.

For normal yes, but now it is louder and constant. Could it be that the gas that is used for cold air, is going empty?

Maybe its normal then as a few of use are getting this. Either that or all of our aircon systems need a refill.
