AC Issue

OK, It is only April and it stating to heat up in the Valley of the Sun. Next week in the 90's. Turned on the AC last week and noticed that it did not seem to be cooling the interior down. Today, the AC did not blow any cold air. Is there a way to recharge the AC system?
Thanks!

Most garages regas A/C systems which is the safest way, you can get a DIY can from most auto stores.

If you start the car and turn the ac on and fill the rev drop or hear the ac pump come on it will only need a gas re-charge should cost you around 50, but get them to test the system before they re-fill it as if you have a leak you would have wasted the 50.

Thank you for reaching out to me. I just took my car to a great independant Bimmer shop. They recharged the system for $77.00.
