How often does my vehicle’s air conditioner need to be recharged?
The necessary frequency of air conditioning recharges depends on the amount of refrigerant required and whether the system leaks. A car air conditioner can lose 1-2 ounces of refrigerant per year. The type of vehicle also makes a difference Compact cars may require 10 ounces, while an SUV may need 40 ounces. Typically, you do not need to worry about recharging you’re A/C until it stops working.
