Recharge or Replace?
What choices does a consumer have if their system has a leak?
When considering whether to replace or recharge your system, some things to ask yourself.
How old is your system?
How long are you going to live at this property?
Is it feasible to keep adding R-22?
Keep in mind that as the supply for R-22 production dwindles, the price will skyrocket.
There is no guarantee when R-22 is put back into your system that it won't leak out again, sometimes within hours.
