What A Slow Leak Means To Your AC Unit


Refrigerant leaks don’t just prevent your AC until from cooling the home effectively; they can also lead to freeze-ups that affect the overall lifespan of your cooling system as well as your family’s health. If you think your AC unit may be suffering a slow leak, don’t hesitate to contact the AC repair in Tampa experts at Del-Air for a speedy repair. Doing this helps ensure your family’s comfort and health throughout all four seasons.

How Refrigerant Works

Refrigeration chlorofluorocarbons, serves to cool down the external air and keeps the room temperature in a home constant. Contrary to popular belief, your AC system does not use up refrigerant by operating. If your refrigerant level needs to be topped off, it’s a good sign that the system is experiencing a leak in the condenser or evaporator coil.

An essential part of the AC system, refrigerant can cause serious issues when it begins to leak. In the long run, refrigerant leakage can result in a number of dangerous problems including a system freeze-up if the refrigerant pressure falls to low. To protect your AC unit, as well as your family’s health, it’s important to contact a professional AC company like Del-Air the moment you notice a refrigerant leak.

Because there are a number of reasons that an AC system could be suffering from refrigerant leakage, technicians need to perform an immediate inspection to determine the source of the problem. While most air conditioner freeze-ups occur because the evaporator coil is too cool, experts can’t always identify the source of the problem at first glance. When inspecting a leaking AC, our trusted techs may:

  • Replace a visible joint or valve core
  • Tighten a fitting
  • Replace a condenser or evaporator coil
  • Replace a copper line set

Whatever we find, we will keep you updated and informed throughout every step of the process.

This was my first experience with Del-Air and they were prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. They were able to get me in on the same day for a maintenance visit, which I wasn’t expecting but very much appreciated.
