If your system isn't cooling sufficiently, the best solution is to repair the leak
A technician from another company checked this customer’s system but couldn't find a leak. He filled the system with refrigerant, but by the time he returned for another recharge the line had frozen over and he couldn't do anything. The customer’s system had not worked correctly for a month.
An air conditioner doesn't simply “run out” of refrigerant. If your system does not cool sufficiently because it is low on refrigerant, that means you have a leak. You can continue having it recharged, but you will eventually have the same problem over and over until you have the leak fixed permanently. We have advanced tools that we use to detect a leak so that we can take care of it.
However, if you have an older system and you have this sort of problem, you will very likely be better off simply having your air conditioner replaced. Your system uses a form of refrigerant called Freon that is being phased out due to environmental concerns. As time goes on, Freon will become less and less available. As a result, it will only get more expensive.
