A car’s AC system can become overcharged as a result of adding too much refrigerant to the system. This can be hazardous if not handled properly, so it’s always best to take it to a mechanic to have it properly drained out. They have a specialized vacuum machine meant for removing any excess refrigerant and other harmful materials that are causing your car’s AC to be overcharged. You will notice that this is the case if your car won’t cool down or the heat persists. The good news is that the drained-out refrigerant can be used again.
