What is the average cost of recharging a fire extinguisher

While not all fire extinguishers can be refilled or recharged, most fire extinguishers can be recharged. Many of these cylinders will last for many years when properly maintained. Before we answer what is the average cost of recharging a fire extinguisher, let’s cover some basics.

Benefits of Having A Fire Extinguisher

A fire extinguisher is a powerful fire protection tool. The truth is that fire extinguishers save lives. Fire extinguishers also can prevent your property from experiencing severe damage. A fire extinguisher can put out a small fire or at least contain it until the fire department arrives. Fire extinguishers are often the first line of defense against fires.

Average Cost of Recharging A Fire Extinguisher

The price varies by the make and model of the fire extinguisher as well as the condition of the extinguisher. Generally speaking, the bigger the extinguisher, then the more chemical required and the higher the cost. Another consideration is if you bring the extinguisher to our shop or if we come to you for onsite service. While there isn’t necessarily an expiration date for your fire extinguisher, there are signs that will be present.

Signs Your Fire Extinguisher Needs to be Recharged

It’s important to confirm your fire extinguisher is working right and is ready for use in the case of a fire. There are a couple of instances and signs when you should plan to have your fire extinguisher recharged, such as:

  • You recently used it to put out a fire
  • The gauge signifies low pressure
  • You accidentally released a small amount of pressure
  • It’s been six years and it’s time for routine maintenance 

It may be time to replace your fire extinguisher altogether if you notice signs of corrosion and rust, depressurization, or if it fails the Hydrostatic test. If you require fire extinguisher recharging services, then be glad to know that we can help.
