Average Cost to Refill Freon in Your Vehicle’s Air Conditioner

If you notice that your vehicle’s air conditioner works slowly or not working at all, then the reason can be a loss of coolant or Freon. Recharging your car’s AC system with Freon can be done only by locals who have state governments required permits and special licensing to work with refrigerant because Freon gas is dangerous when it enters the atmosphere, so recovery of the old gas is essential. That’s why only a professional can recharge the AC, but it’s quite an expensive job. Let’s take a look at the average cost of refilling the refrigerant.

Reasonable Price

You can refill your car’s AC Freon for somewhere between $100-$150, which can last for many years. If a professional mechanic refills the Freon on your car, they will also check to make sure the system is working correctly. And, if after three years you need to refill the Freon again, then most probably there is a leak between the hoses or valves. You can get a low price on a Freon refill in the cooler months when the demand is lower.

Variables

The cost of a Freon refill can vary. Some companies charge by the pound for a Freon replacement, so it depends on the size of your car’s AC unit and the level of a refrigerant left in it. The smaller the unit, the less Freon it will need. Larger units require more to rebcabfill and will also cost you more.

If you have a Freon leak, then the price will go up. As the refrigerant can be harmful to the atmosphere, the EPA demands that a leak check be performed and any repairs made before the Freon can be refilled.

The price on a refrigerant recharge can also vary due to location and time of year, but that will not affect the average cost too much.
