How Often Should I Recharge My System?

Recently a customer asked us how often he should recharge his system with Freon.

Two American Standard units

Freon Isn’t Like Gas

This is kind of a trick question. Freon doesn’t get used up like gas in your car or worn out. It just circulates. It circulates from outside to inside and then back outside, over and over again.

So if Freon just keeps circulating but doesn’t get used up or worn out, how does your system become low on Freon?

The answer is: If your Freon is low, you have a leak!
