How To Tell If Your Vehicle Needs an A/C Recharge

If your vehicle needs an A/C recharge*, you’ll know it. Instead of enjoying icy cold air, the A/C system blows either mildly cool or no cold air at all.

*Recharging your vehicle’s A/C system is a temporary fix to a potentially bigger problem. When an A/C system is missing refrigerant, the system probably has a leak and should be inspected and repaired by a certified mechanic.

Note: Some older vehicles cannot have their A/C system recharged. These vehicles were generally manufactured before 1995 and use R12 refrigerant which is no longer available. Your only option may be to replace your vehicle’s A/C system.

Dangers of a DIY A/C Recharge

Some people try to save money by recharging their vehicle’s A/C system on their own. Do-it-yourself kits are available. However, there are several drawbacks with the DIY approach:

  1. It’s impossible to determine how much A/C refrigerant remains in your system without using the proper equipment so you won’t know how much additional refrigerant to add to the A/C system.
  2. Using an incorrect A/C refrigerant may cause a dangerous chemical reaction.
  3. An A/C recharge is considered a professional repair as the A/C refrigerant contains hazardous liquid. Improper A/C recharging could lead to serious injury or death.
