It’s hot outside and you walk into your home and you can’t wait to feel that nice cool air, but you notice one thing missing: cool air. You ask yourself - what’s wrong with my air conditioning?
It could be quite a few things, but one thing that often occurs and causes issues is the air conditioner’s Freon leaking. If you find that your AC system doesn’t seem to be cooling your home, you may have a Freon leak.
Adding Freon to your AC unit is also referred to as recharging Freon in your air conditioner as well.
Now that you know what Freon is, let’s look at how much it costs. Unfortunately, it’s not cheap, but it’s still less than having to replace your entire AC. Typical AC systems hold about 4-6 lbs. of Freon, and, depending on the type of coolant needed, it costs between $50-$90 per pound.
The EPA requires that the production of the refrigerant itself ends by the year 2020; therefore, because of this limited production, R-22 is more expensive than other refrigerants, costing anywhere from $135-$175 plus per pound.An efficient AC system that works correctly is a requirement for most of us during hot summer days. If you want a cool home when it’s hot outside, making sure that your AC’s Freon level is where it should be – and not leaking - is very important.
