How often should Freon be added to my air conditioner?

Should the blower fan motor be set to “On” or “Auto”?
It is generally recommended to set the fan motor to the "auto" position.

What is SEER?
Much like MPG measures your car's fuel efficiency, Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) is a measurement of the energy efficiency of your HVAC system.  SEER is the BTU of cooling output during a typical cooling season divided by the total electric energy input watts-hours during the same period. The higher the SEER rating of a unit, the more energy efficient it is. The current minimum standard set by the federal government is 13 SEER.

What do I need to know about R-22 and R-410A Refrigerants?
All residential systems manufactured since 2009 have had the “New Freon” R410-A.  R-22 production is being reduced by the Federal government and will no longer be produced in 2020.  Because of this, prices have sky rocketed and will continue to rise.
