Common Causes of AC Refrigerant Leaks
While your evaporator coil and refrigerant lines can fail as they age, they are more susceptible to certain environmental factors. Common problems that cause AC refrigerant leaks include:
- Connection and joint deterioration
- Excessive vibrations
- Formic acid from copper lines
The best way to prevent refrigerant leaks is to schedule professional cleaning and maintenance regularly. Receiving service at least every six months will drastically reduce your chance of leaks.
Signs of an Air Conditioner Refrigerant Leak
Air conditioner refrigerant can leak slowly, so the signs that something is wrong with your system will often be slow to appear. Watch for these problems that indicate your Akron cooling system has a refrigerant leak:
- Ice and frost buildup on your evaporator coil appears when lost refrigerant impairs its ability to absorb heat, causing excess moisture to freeze.
- Reduced cooling power gradually occurs as your system loses the refrigerant that usually absorbs heat.
- Unusual hissing noises near your lines indicate escaping gas, even from leaks that are too small to see.
When you call for repairs, we will carefully inspect your system and measure your refrigerant levels to diagnose leaks accurately. AC refrigerant is toxic, subject to several EPA regulations, so let our NATE-certified experts take care of your repair needs.
