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.

How Often Do I Need a Freon Recharge?

One of the most common myths about AC refrigerants is that the system uses it up as it runs and thus requires ‘filling up’ like a gas tank. However, the truth is that you should never have to replace or recharge your AC’s Freon unless there’s a leak.

If you’re experiencing issues with your AC unit, such as it blowing warm air, call a professional to check the air filter and thermostat, as these are the most likely causes. Also, have them inspect the outdoor unit for problems that make the system act erratically. If they determine that the refrigerant is low, you probably have a leak somewhere.

If a leak is found, there are several options to deal with it. The first is to recharge the Freon. Yes, we said you shouldn’t have to do this, but consider since fixing Freon leaks is expensive, you can get by with this option if you’ve never had to recharge the Freon before, which means you have a small leak and the unit will likely get you through the summer. The other time to consider recharging is if you plan to replace the system in the next year or two.

If neither of those scenarios applies, you must have a technician find and fix the leak now or install a new system.

If you think you have a refrigerant leak, but don’t know what to do, call the AC pros at Home Squad.

Dangers of Freon Leaks

AC refrigerant, or Freon, is a toxic substance that is highly poisonous and can cause death if not handled properly. Accidentally inhaling leaking Freon can land you in the hospital or worse. No refrigerant must get into the house via the system’s airflow. If you notice a foul-smelling odor coming out of your HVAC unit while it’s running, you might have a Freon leak.
