Answer: It is always best to have your serviceman find and fix the leak. This will prevent the unit running low over and over again and your unit not cooling. Also, when the unit is low on refrigerant, more stress is put on the compressor and more energy is used up. If you need only one pound of refrigerant every two or three years, you may choose not to have the servicemen locate and repair the leak.
