Fire extinguishers are a vital part of your building’s fire protection plan. They allow your employees to act quickly against a small fire before it grows into a real threat. Of course, for an extinguisher to be as effective as possible, it must be fully charged when you need it most.
A quick glance at a fire extinguisher’s pressure gauge during an inspection tells you whether it’s charged. If the needle shows the fire extinguisher has lost even a small amount of pressure, don’t take your chances—have Fire Guys NY perform recharge services, so your extinguishers are ready to protect you in the event of a fire.

When to Recharge a Fire Extinguisher
Here are the most common circumstances that require a fire extinguisher recharge:
- You recently used your extinguisher to fight a fire: When a fire starts in your building, and you or an employee discharges the extinguisher to put out the flames, it’s important to recharge the canister without delay. This way, you know it’s ready to go the next time you need it.
- You accidentally discharged a bit of pressure: Even a second or two of released pressure could leave the extinguisher undercharged and less effective against a future fire. To ensure you have maximum firefighting power from every extinguisher in your building, recharge it even if the pressure gauge indicates a mostly full canister.
- You notice the pressure is down during an inspection: Whether during a monthly DIY inspection or a yearly professional inspection, you may notice the pressure gauge is pointing to the yellow or the red. If so, make fire extinguisher recharge services a top priority. Then, keep an eye on the tank in the future. If you notice another drop in pressure despite not being used, this means the tank has a leak, and you should replace it as soon as possible.
- The extinguisher is discharged during a routine inspection: Some inspections involve operating the extinguisher to ensure proper discharging mechanisms and pressure gauge readings. Once the testing is complete, the tank should be repaired if necessary, recharged, and put back into service.
