If your air conditioning system isn’t working efficiently or stops blowing cold air altogether, a refrigerant leak could be to blame.
Your air conditioner refrigerant, or Freon, is coolant in the evaporator coil that draws heat from the indoor air and cools it down. This refrigerant should remain at a consistent level as it’s not “used up” like a fuel source—should being the key word. If your evaporator coil is damaged, it may leak freon, and that’s where our refrigerant leak services come in handy.
You can count on our skilled team at Method Air for AC troubleshooting, freon replacement, and leak repair in Draper, UT.
Not sure your evaporator coil is the problem? Not a problem! We can handle all manner of AC repairs.
Signs That You Have a Refrigerant Leak
While your AC may stop working entirely, there are other potential signs of a refrigerant leak as well. Keep a lookout for:
- Slower cooling
- Blowing lukewarm air
- Hissing or gurgling sounds coming from the unit
- Frozen condensation on the coils
- Sudden electric bill increases
These warning signs may be the result of other issues as well but indicate an underlying problem of some kind.
How We Deal with Refrigerant Leaks
We have several solutions available for refrigerant leaks in Draper. A Freon recharge is the cheapest option, but it is also temporary, as the refrigerant level will drop again. If there are one or two small leaks, we can repair them and recharge the Freon levels.
If your AC is more than ten years old and you’re starting to see frequent issues, a system replacement may be a more cost-effective option. After inspecting your system, our technicians will sit down with you to help you decide on the best approach.
