Consequently, how much does it cost to recharge a car air conditioner?
For most cars, the cost of an AC recharge will be about $200 but can go as high as $280. It's a simple procedure, but it can take a while to check everything out and ensure that there is no further damage, so expect to pay about $120 for the labor costs.
Similarly, can you buy Freon for your car? Only EPA-certified technicians are allowed to purchase ozone-depleting substances (ODS) used as refrigerants. The sales restriction covers refrigerants contained in cylinders, cans, or drums, except for the sale of small cans of substitute refrigerants (e.g., R-134a for use in motor vehicle air conditioners.
Then, does AutoZone add Freon to cars?
When it's time for an AC recharge, turn to AutoZone. We carry R134a refrigerant, PAG46 oil, AC stop leak, AC system cleaner, and more. You can shop online for same day in-store pick up or go to your local AutoZone to find the right AC solution for you and your vehicle.
How often does Freon need to be replaced in car?
Cars used to use Freon as a refrigerant, but it's no longer allowed to be made in the U.S., so modern cars use R-134 instead. Most vehicles don't need refrigerant to be added more than every few years unless there's a leak somewhere in the system.
