Refrigerant Leak Detection

refrigerant leak What is Refrigerant?

Refrigerant is a chemical that plays a major part in the cooling process of HVAC units or refrigerators. When in use, refrigerant cycles from a liquid, to a gas, and back to a liquid during the cooling process.

The Problem with Refrigerant Leaks

If your HVAC unit has a leak, it can cause refrigerant to leak into the surrounding environment, which may include the inside of your home. Leaks may cause health problems, damage to the environment, and damage to your air conditioning unit.

  • Health Problems
    If you breathe in refrigerant gases, you may experience health problems, such as headaches, nausea, or even asphyxiation.
  • Environmental Problems
    The most common types of refrigerant are considered chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and are extremely harmful to the environment. If released into the environment, the gases will eat away at the stratospheric ozone layer of the air.
  • Damage to Your AC Unit
    If your AC unit has a refrigerant leak, the lack of fluids can lead to damage of almost every component. Additionally, the AC unit will not work efficiently, costing you money on your energy bills.
