Air Conditioning Unit Leaks

Nothing is more frustrating than when your air conditioner breaks down and cannot cool your home. Although complete breakdowns are uncommon, many factors could cause your air conditioning to function less productively than usual.

For example, when an A/C unit leaks its refrigerant, which it uses to cool the air in your system, it causes problems. These problems affect not only cooling but also the drain line, evaporator coils, and air filter.

Knowing when to call Elite Comfort Systems to fix a refrigerant leak is crucial.

Signs of a Refrigerant Leak

Knowing the signs of a refrigerant leak is crucial, so you can take immediate action upon noticing them.

Inefficient Air Conditioning System and Rising Utility Bills

One clear sign of a refrigerant leak is an air conditioner working much less efficiently. If you notice that your home never reaches your desired temperature or takes too long to cool, leaking refrigerant might be the culprit. The decreased efficiency will also likely increase your monthly utility bills as your system works harder to compensate.

Strange Noises During A/C System Operation

You should never hear strange noises while your A/C is operating. Clicking and hissing can indicate low levels of refrigerant, which suggests that there is probably a leak.

If you notice any of these signs, call Elite Comfort Systems. Our expert technicians will help restore your A/C to optimal working order.

Frozen Coils

The evaporator coil is where refrigerant compresses and turns warm air into cool air conditioning for your home. When refrigerant leaks, the balance of temperatures skews, freezing the coil.
Since dirt and bacteria typically accumulate on these coils, a frozen evaporator coil will drip and condensate drain pan and likely clog your drain pipe. Additionally, these drain pans can start leaking water and cause other issues for your A/C unit. Enlist an HVAC technician if you notice these signs, as it might require a new drain pan or an additional drip pan to assist a condensate drain line.

What Causes Refrigerant Leaks in an Air Conditioning Unit?

The evaporator coils of your A/C unit are responsible for compressing refrigerant, turning warm air running through the system into the well-tempered air that ultimately cools your home. If there are cracks in these coils, it will typically cause a refrigerant leak.
Coils usually become cracked because homeowners fail to schedule routine preventative maintenance for their air conditioners. Neglecting this vital care can also lead to a clogged air filter, cracked drain pan, clogged drain line, and other problems that require expensive repairs. Scheduling maintenance with Elite Comfort Systems is the best way to avoid these issues.
