Depends on where you are and who you call. I do know however, if you are actually low on freon, there is probably a leak in your coil or refridgerant lines.

I had a check up last year and I was considerably low. Service call (non emergency) plus freon was around $100

Can you still get freon?
I thought it was phased out as part of the Montreal Protocol....

There are still older models in service that use the old, bad-for-the-ozone-layer stuff. You must be a licensed tradesman to purchase or transport it and any discharge can land the guy in big trouble.

Newer, some would say better refrigerants are now used, but they still tend to get lumped under the "freon" name.

Here in Omaha, it's going to run somewhere in the $125 - $150 range, assuming the unit needs a complete recharge.

Here's the catch: If you're out of freon, you have a leak. That means your new freon is going to leak out too.

- One question is how rapidly is it going to leak?
- Another question is WHERE is the leak? If it's inside your house, you're blowing freon around in the house.

Puron. Those are mfg names though. It would be like calling all tissue paper Kleenex.
