We must advise homeowners that adding more refrigerant to their home air conditioner should not be taken lightly. While it may seem like a quick and simple fix, overcharging your air conditioner with refrigerant can actually cause serious damage to the compressor and other components. In fact, constantly adding refrigerant without addressing the underlying issue could end up costing you more money in the long run. It’s best to have a trained professional diagnose and fix the issue before adding any refrigerant. Trust us, your air conditioner will thank you for it.
