How Much Does an AC Recharge Cost?

AC Recharge Service and Cost

Best Practices

We recommend adding leak detection dye when recharging the A/C system to assist in finding any future refrigerant leaks.

Common Symptoms

Ford Contour A/C systems may require recharging if they become weak and do not perform well or if they start to make unusual noises.

Common Misdiagnoses

Adding refrigerant to a poorly functioning A/C system without first diagnosing the problem may result in overcharging. This has been known to cause damage to the A/C compressor, resulting in a very expensive (and avoidable) repair.

"Stop leak" compounds are not recommended, as they are temporary solutions and can damage A/C components, resulting in expensive repairs.
