Demystifying AC Refrigerant Recharging: What Homeowners Need to Know

 

At Forquer Heating and Cooling, we often receive inquiries regarding air conditioning units and the need for regular refrigerant recharging. We want to clarify a widespread misconception: your air conditioning unit should not require yearly recharging.

Refrigerant is the substance that cools the air within your AC unit. Contrary to what some may believe, refrigerant does not break down or evaporate over time; instead, it leaks. This leakage implies an issue within the system that needs addressing.

Here are some key takeaways to keep in mind:


•    If your AC requires frequent recharging, this suggests a leak in your system.
•    The regular addition of refrigerant, or "recharging," has become costly due to increasing refrigerant prices.
•    If your system consistently leaks, the cost-effective solution may be to repair the leak or consider replacing the unit if it's old.

In the past, yearly recharging was a common practice, largely due to the affordability of refrigerant. However, times have changed. Modern refrigerants are more expensive, and a leaky system can prove quite costly over time.

 

If you suspect your air conditioning unit is losing refrigerant, it's time to call in the experts. At Forquer Heating and Cooling, we specialize in identifying and fixing these issues efficiently to help you maintain a cool, comfortable home without undue expense.

Don't let a refrigerant leak drain your wallet. Contact us today for professional, reliable service to keep your AC running at peak performance.
