There are a few misconceptions homeowners have when it comes to air conditioning maintenance. One of these myths is that their refrigerant needs to be refilled (recharged) during each tune-up. The fact of the matter is, if your refrigerant needs to be refilled it means that you have a leak in need of repairs.
Another important refrigerant fact to know, if your air conditioner is an older unit using R-22 refrigerant, is that this is about to be fully phased out. The reason for this phase out is due to the harmful effects that R-22 has on the environment. If your air conditioner is old enough to be affected by this phase-out, then you are likely due for a system replacement anyhow.
