Why Can’t You Just Refill My Freon?
Though your AC unit might work after a coolant refill, that’s a band-aid fix for a much larger problem. Because air conditioners are closed systems, any loss in refrigerant means there’s a leak somewhere. With many older systems using environmentally hazardous substances like R-410—which is now banned in new units and only available via reclamation—getting these refills can end up being more expensive than buying a new air conditioner that uses safer, lower-cost refrigerants.
