Dangers of a Refrigerant Leak

Most older air conditioning systems use a type of refrigerant called Freon (R-22) which is a trade name for a class of chemicals called chlorofluorocarbons. Harm from exposure to R-22 is greatest during initial exposure times. Minor side-effects include skin dryness and itchiness. More serious problems include heart palpitations and an irregular heartbeat. If you suspect a refrigerant leak in your AC system, open all windows to ventilate your home and call a repair technician immediately.

Other harms of a refrigerant leak include:

  • Environmental. R-22 is hazardous as it causes harm to the earth’s ozone layer and contributes to global warming. Did you know that newer AC systems use a safer, more environmentally-friendly refrigerant called R-410A?
  • Damage to your air conditioning system. Low levels of refrigerant causes the compressor to overwork and causes damage to other components within the system.
  • Harm to your wallet. Your air conditioning system is not efficient when you have a refrigerant leak. More energy is required to run AC when it’s not working properly.

Common Causes of Refrigerant Leaks

This is common in copper coils or tubing. Copper is especially susceptible to chemicals found in the air from cleaners, hairspray and other household products and furniture. In particular, formaldehyde found inside most homes builds up on copper coils and causes formicary corrosion. As a result, small pinhole leaks are formed on the copper.

  • Weakened joints. Through normal wear-and-tear, joints and connections become weaker.
  • Old Age. Since refrigerant passes through coils at a high pressure, over time it causes the inside of coils to wear down.

How We Fix Refrigerant Leaks

Right Now Heating and Air Conditioning doesn’t believe in taking short-cuts. We check for leaks in common areas such as the valve or access port, evaporator or condenser coils, and heat pump copper tubing. We repair all leaks, test the system, and properly charge your AC system with the exact amount of refrigerant required for optimal performance as specified by your system’s manufacturer.

Ryne was great! He quickly diagnosed the problem with our heating system, fixed it just as fast, and was very professional and knowledgeable. He’s the reason I’ll be calling your company again.

Right Now Heating and Air Conditioning did a great job on our furnace and A/C service. The repair tech was very professional and wore booties inside while checking temp at various vents throughout the house.The documentation provided at the end... gave a good review of checks made and test results (great for future use and comparison when getting A/C or furnace serviced).I also received a quality callback from a manager at Right Now Heating and Air Conditioning to see how the appointment and service went. Not only do I strongly recommend Right Now Heating and Air Conditioning, but I will continue to use them for future furnace and A/C work.read more

Our technician was super friendly and showed up right on time. A thorough service was performed on our heating and AC systems. One issue was detected and the technician discussed it with us and then continued with the repair once we agreed to the... work. I appreciated his professionalism and his knowledge. We will rely on them again next year to keep our heating and cooling systems running smoothly.read more
