Is your Refrigerant Charge Low? Are you out of Refrigerant? Do you have a Leak? For the best Refrigerant Service in Charleston, look no further than Air Plus Heating & Air.
The typical indication that your air conditioning system is low on refrigerant is the evaporator coil literally freezes up, resulting in reduced air flow and little to no cooling. Prior to that, you may notice a significant loss in cooling capacity up to the point where the coil freezes.
Contrary to popular belief, air conditioners do not consume refrigerant and, with the exception of a small amount of refrigerant escaping when gauges are attached by an HVAC technician, should not require routine “filling”.
In general, if your air conditioner is low on refrigerant, either it was undercharged at installation or it is leaking. And if your air conditioning system is leaking, continually adding refrigerant is not the best solution. A technician should repair any leaks discovered during a leak search and properly charge the system. Optimum performance and efficiency of your air conditioner is achieved when the Refrigerant charge matches the manufacturer’s recommendations.
