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

Common Symptoms
  • 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.
