Do I need to recharge coolant once in while?
Under normal conditions, refrigerant or freon need not be recharged or replenished. Refrigerant is contained in a "closed loop" that consists of a compressor, expansion valve, evaporator coil and condenser coil. If a leak developes as a result of damage to any of these components, the refrigerant will escape as it is under pressure. The leak will need to be located and repaired before refrigerant can be returned to the system. An unsufficent refrigerant level is always an indication of a leaking system, but; an A/C unit that fails to cool the air is not always a sign of a low refrigerant level.

When i run the ac
All portable or window ac units are mounted or standing with the back lower housing at a slope
so that the condensed water buildup from the evaporator can drain into a tray or thru a tube out
the back of the unit, depending on what kind of unit you have you may have to take it apart and
make sure the drain for the condensed water is not blocked. some times these units are not
installed correctly, they will not drain properly and standing water with time will turn to rust and
clog up the tube where it needs to flow from the ac unit. good luck!
