Air conditioners rely on more than 2 key components to work effectively.
One part that a/c workers are consistently keeping an eye on is the freon.
An a/c separate from enough freon won’t cool your beach home in the heat of summer. While it’s not usual for freon levels to drop, it’s also not impossible. The primary cause of low freon levels is leaks. Freon leaks do happen and should never be treated lightly. There are particular signs that you can notice on your a/c to signal a freon leak. One of the main signs is a hissing sound from the system. Always act fast if you ever hear this sound as freon can be quite dangerous and toxic. Another sign that indicates a freon leak is ice on the evaporator coils. A Heating, Ventilation plus A/C expert will notice there’s freon leak on your component if they come across frozen evaporator coils. Also, consistently watch out for when your a/c drops in performance, however even when you adjust the hot and cold temperatures, it still doesn’t cool your beach home enjoy it used to do. Lastly, an increase in energy costs is another sign that something is wrong with the a/c. Always have an Heating, Ventilation plus A/C expert investigate the freon leak and service it. Not only is it safer, but it lessens the possibilities of further injure to the cooling unit. At times, the freon lines can have cracks on them causing the leak. In such instances, you can hear a distinct hissing sound from the a/c. Make sure you turn off the component and open the windows to bring in fresh air into your beach home if that happens.
