Unlike gas in your car, refrigeration doesn’t just disappear over time. If your system is low causing a lack of cooling, there is likely a leak in the system.
Is my car low on Freon?
Your A/C is Blowing Warm Air One of the most obvious symptoms of low Freon levels is if your air conditioner is blowing warm or room temperature air. As we discussed, the air conditioning system in your vehicle operates by circulating this pressurized refrigerant.
How much does it cost to put Freon in your car?
Freo is one of the core components of the air conditioning systems of many older cars, and needs to be replaced regularly for routine maintenance. Freon replacement costs between $187 and $261 at most garages, with the freon itself costing just between $57 and $120.
What happens when freon is low?
The refrigerant in your air conditioning system is responsible for absorbing heat from your indoor air and then dumping it outside. If your AC is low on refrigerant, it can’t absorb as much heat from your home. And that leads to an air conditioner that runs nonstop and never cools your home.
