Many homeowners have a tendency to think that adding refrigerant can solve most problems. However, a central air conditioner is a sealed system and should not lose its refrigerant. Although it does happen, low refrigerant means there is a leak in the system. Adding refrigerant will get the system cooling again but will not solve the root problem.
