Coolant: Air Conditioning Recharge
Your air conditioning coolant may very well be one of the most vital parts of your AC system. What does the coolant actually do? A coolant is a chemical that can change from liquid to gas and back with out much pressure. Through this it gathers and releases heat creating a cold surface for your AC fans to blow over. This is why it’s so important to keep the correct amount of coolant inside of the system at all times.
Do I need to recharge my air conditioning coolant?
There are several signs that you may need to replace or recharge your AC coolant. The most common cause is an actual leak of the coolant into the atmosphere. To help you we’ve compiled some of the most common signs of a leak below:
- Blowing room temperature air — Is your unit blowing air that could best be described as meh? It’s pretty disappointing when you turn your AC on for that first real scorcher and all that happens is room temperature air blows out. This is typically caused by a lack of coolant in the system. Luckily this is an easy fix for a trained professional.
- Frozen Coils — The coils or pipes that carry the coolant around and facilitate the change from hot to cold are pretty durable, but every once in a while they’ll spring a leak. Air conditioning coolant is made so it can get very cold, meaning when it does escape it’ll pretty much freeze all the surrounding area.
