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.

Ali was very professional and nice. He seemed truly passionate about his work. He told me what he was doing, and then showed me. He was excited about the good work he did, and I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

Our upstairs furnace was not working and we were told that our unit was too old and needed to be replaced ASAP. Ali came over, inspected it and immediately found the problem. The furnace’s front panel/door was open and the kill switch had shut off... the unit, as designed. The door/panel was open because the fasteners/screws had been left off during the previous service call.Our furnace is old, but works perfectly fine and does not need to be replaced today. Ali saved us $5500-6000 and moving forward we will always request him by name.read more

Our water heater went out on a Friday evening. We called "Right Now" to have someone come out to look at it. Joe was on time, professional and courteous. He quickly resolved the issue, and explained what he had done. He was able to get us hot... water again, but unfortunately, with a rusting 16 year old water heater, it's time for a new one. At our request, he set up an appt. for someone to come to our house the next day, to give us an estimate. Joe left everything clean, and wore the proper coverings while in the house. We bought our new furnace and AC last summer, from "Right Now", and we were very happy with their services. We will continue to use them and we have reccomended tthem to others.read more

Thus company originally installed our furnace and AC. system 6 years ago. Every time they have done either follow-up, maintenance or are called like today they are prompt and show up as promised. This time Blake Warr was here, he was super... helpful, explained things clearly, answered questions. Felt like he genuinely cared about his work and our satisfaction. Will always recommend and use them. Good work, worth it. And competitively priced.read more
