I always take mine to an ac tech. They will pull a vacuum on the system to check for leaks. Then will add the Proper amount of freon if system is not leaking. My ac tech only charges $50 for this service and you only pay if your ac works properly. If your system does not work he reclaims his freon and either makes plans to fix for you or advises what you need to fix in order to get it working.
