My name is Billy.
Home ac units are generally brought in sections and then piped together. Then the refrigerant is released or installed. A refrigerator or package device is all one unit and charged and sealed at the factory.
In home units it is common to develop a leak which then requires repair and then more refrigerant. The issue is that if there is a leak...it MUST be located and repaired. You can not just add refrigerant without finding and fixing the leak.
