Air conditioning systems do not require refrigerant (a.k.a. freon) recharging. If you have to recharge your AC system with refrigerant, it’s because you have a leak! Additionally, a dirty AC air filter or a frozen evaporator coil can interfere with the reading of the refrigerant charge.
In cases like these, you are better off calling a professional. Maitz Home Services in Allentown, PA, can determine why your AC system freon leaks. Our NATE-certified technicians receive ongoing training in the latest air conditioning technologies, and we can conduct a thorough evaluation of your HVAC system to determine why it requires frequent recharges.

Expert Refrigerant Leak Repairs
The refrigerant in your air conditioning system should never leak. If your air conditioner is low on freon, it may have been under-charged during installation. Or more likely, it is probably leaking. Call Maitz Home Services for an inspection of your complete HVAC system to determine the cause of the freon leak. We will repair or replace it, whichever is more appropriate for the situation.
Don't put off fixing a refrigerant leak. Although seemingly minor, a refrigerant leak can wreak havoc on your AC system. More importantly, it is hazardous to your health as well as the environment.
Repair it or Recharge it?
If your AC refrigerant is leaking, adding more refrigerant to the system won't accomplish much. The leak will continue until you repair the hole that is letting the freon out.
There are only TWO ways to repair a refrigerant leak:
- Locate the hole and repair it
- Replace the coil with a new one
Call Maitz Home Services for prompt and accurate refrigerant leak diagnostics and repairs so your air conditioner will never need a freon recharge again.
