What Happens When Refrigerant Leaks?

What Happens When Refrigerant Leaks?

What Happens When Refrigerant Leaks?

Refrigerant leaks and low refrigerant levels rank among the most common reasons to summon an air conditioning technician. Theoretically, your air conditioner runs its refrigerant through a closed loop: shifting it from a gas to a liquid and then back into a gas, and pulling heat from the nearby air in the process. That depends on precise levels of refrigerant in your system (the exact amount depends on the system) and when it springs leaks, it can have a detrimental effect on your ability to cool the air. Here in Mesa, AZ, that’s a significant concern, especially in the height of summer. So what happens when refrigerant leaks? Nothing good.

Symptoms

Symptoms of leaking refrigerant sometimes can include an audible hiss or similar signs of an overt leak, but unfortunately, it’s usually more subtle than that. The best indicator is the formation of frost on your evaporator coils, which constitutes cooling power stuck in the system instead of being blown into your home. You can also look for more subtle signs of a problem, such as an unusually high monthly energy bill or air blowing through the system that isn’t as cool as you’d expect.

Results

Those symptoms basically represent lost efficiency, which means your air conditioner needs to spend more energy to do its job and that strain on the system is increased as well. In the short term, it means you’ll be paying more than you should for the same cooling power, which can really pinch during the dog days of summer. In the long term, all that wear and tear will shorten the overall life of your system and could likely result in a major breakdown or two along the way.

Thankfully, sealing refrigerant leaks and recharging refrigerant is an easy task for trained technicians. Call John’s Refrigeration to schedule an appointment today!
