Signs That You Have a Refrigerant Leak

Monday, August 15th, 2016 at 11:00 am

Refrigerant is the core of most air conditioning systems. Whether you're using a central AC, ductless mini split, or heat pump, refrigerant is necessary for keeping your home cool. So, a refrigerant leak is a serious threat to the health of your system. If a leak develops in your system's refrigerant line, it will slowly drain the system of the fluid that it needs to operate. This will cause a steady decline in output, followed by an eventual full system breakdown. If you want to prevent this from happening, you need to be able to recognize the signs of a refrigerant leak as early as possible. Read on to find out more about these signs.

Dropping Output

Refrigerant is the fluid that makes it possible for your system to actually transfer heat out of your home. The air conditioning system evaporates and condenses refrigerant in order to absorb and release heat, but it never consumes it. If refrigerant is drained from the system, it will result in a steady drop in output. So, be sure to call for repairs if you notice the output of your system dropping.

Dripping Fluid

Your system's refrigerant line runs throughout the system, and it's not always visible without going into the walls to check. However, there's still plenty of exposed line that you can examine without any equipment. If you notice fluid dripping from this line, or any part of your air conditioning system, you should call for repairs right away. It's possible that it's just a condensate leak, but that's still something that needs to be patched up. Besides, ignoring it isn't worth risking that it actually turns out to be a refrigerant leak.
