How to Know You Have a Freon Leak
An AC refrigerant or Freon leak can happen for various reasons, including faulty manufacturing, improper installation, or damage to your AC unit. Fixing a Freon leak quickly is critical to protecting your family, pets, and property. Here are a few signs that signal that you may have a refrigerant leak.
- HOME TAKES TOO LONG TO COOL DOWN - Freon absorbs the heat from the warm air inside the house to make the temperature comfortable. However, if there’s a lack of Freon in the system, it will take longer to remove the heat.
- WARM AIR BLOWS FROM THE REGISTERS - If your AC system doesn’t have enough refrigerant, it can’t pull the heat out of the air, and what you get is warm air blowing out of the registers.
- YOUR HEAR HISSING SOUNDS - You may hear hissing sounds if there is a refrigerant leak in the line, either in the outside or inside unit.
- FROZEN EVAPORATOR COILS - When the system lacks the proper amount of refrigerant, the evaporator coils won’t be able to absorb as much heat as they should, which leads to them freezing.
As mentioned before, a refrigerant leak isn’t something you should ignore, nor is it a DIY repair. Call in the professionals at Home Squad the minute you detect one of the above problems.
