Decoding Air Conditioning Maintenance: What You Need to Know About Refrigerant from Forquer Heating and Cooling

 

Air conditioning maintenance is a crucial aspect of owning an AC unit, and a service contract can provide peace of mind. One common question we encounter at Forquer Heating and Cooling pertains to the role of refrigerant in standard service contracts.

It's important to understand that refrigerant is not typically included in regular maintenance because, in a properly functioning, leak-free system, it does not deplete over time. Essentially, refrigerant does not break down or disappear.

In a leak-free system with a correct initial refrigerant charge, additional refrigerant should never be required. If your AC unit needs more refrigerant, it likely means there is a leak. This is not a minor issue, and it must be addressed promptly.

The steps involved in fixing a refrigerant leak are:


•    Detecting the leak location, which could be in any of the welded joints, indoor or outdoor coils, or connecting piping
•    Repairing the leak
•    Replacing the lost refrigerant

 

While routine tune-ups do not typically involve dealing with refrigerant, they are vital for maintaining your AC unit's efficiency and detecting potential issues before they turn into costly problems.

At Forquer Heating and Cooling, we provide top-quality maintenance services that keep your AC unit functioning optimally. Need to schedule a tune-up or investigate a potential refrigerant leak?
