5000 BTU Window unit


I have a window air conditioner, 5000 btu, that is not blowing air as cool as it should. Can these be recharged?

Look at other things first. Are the evaporator and condenser clean? Is the filter clean? Is the fan running at the right speed.

It's usually not worth it to charge it and there are a few problems doing it.

The system usually only holds a very small amount of refrigerant. Just connecting the gauge set can cause you to lose some charge. Most don't even have charging ports.

Replace it. A newer model will be more efficient anyways.
