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.

We were delighted to find Right Now to repair our AC during the hottest Friday at 105F. Everyone else is booked out till the following week, while they committed to come Sunday, they called us back to slot us in Saturday! The technician Matt... arrived, very nice person, professional and friendly. He was able to diagnose the issue at no time. While fixing the ancient AC unit, he also educated me on maintenance and cost/efficiency benefits of newer units. Besides, we have a good chat about everything. It turns out they don't charge extra for weekend calls and cost of repair was reasonable. Thank you for coming swiftly and saving everyone from the heat. We have a 1.5 years old who cannot stand 85F inside, much appreciated for your service today!read more

The customer service was absolutely amazing. Our technician, Jaime, was super friendly and very professional. It didn't take long for her to find out the reason our air conditioner stopped working and she was able to replace the needed part on the... spot which I was so grateful for since it was a hot scorching day and we were able to have our cool comfortable house back shortly after she replaced it. Thank you Jaime!!! I would definitely recommend Rght Now Heating and Cooling to anyone.read more
