Recharging an air conditioner involves adding refrigerant to the system to ensure it operates effectively. Refrigerant is a critical component of your air conditioning system, as it allows the transfer of heat from the inside of the building to the outside.
One of our professional HVAC technicians will perform the recharge by connecting specialized equipment to the system and adding refrigerant as needed. During the recharge, the technician will also check the refrigerant levels and assess the overall condition of the air conditioning system. Proper recharging is essential to the efficient operation of the air conditioner and should be performed regularly, typically once a year, to ensure the system operates effectively and to identify any potential issues before they become major problems.
It's not recommended to recharge your air conditioner yourself as it is a complex process that requires specialized equipment and knowledge. Furthermore, refrigerant handling is regulated by the federal government and requires a license to perform. The improper handling of refrigerant can be dangerous to both you and the environment.
How often does an AC need a recharge?
How often an air conditioner needs to be recharged depends on factors like usage, environment, and the efficiency of the system. On average, an air conditioner should be recharged once a year, but it's important to regularly monitor the refrigerant levels and call us to recharge as needed so that the air conditioning system operates as effectively as possible.

There are a few signs that your air conditioner needs a recharge, including:
- The unit is not cooling your home or business as expected
- A hissing or bubbling sound coming from the air conditioner
- A visible refrigerant leak
- A sudden increase in energy bills
If you experience any of these issues, contact us so that one of our expert technicians can assess the condition of your air conditioning system and perform the recharge if necessary.
